Re: show subfolder content in gallery

Hi @King ,

As you can understand, responders are not aware of your stage in the PowerApps journey when replying to a post.

Two things:-

Coincidentally, I posted a similar reply on another thread and MS help had another idea that will work on base level folders. 

However, if you have a small number of items or don't mind a bit of administration, forget about my Workflow (and a Flow would be very messy), simply create a field in the Library and put in the folder names. You can then filter by this to show the items in a PowerApps gallery.

As for the Workflow - if you want to explore these, download (free) SharePoint Designer 2013 - this is still a very useful tool and a lot of automation can be done without using Flow quotas.

Re: show subfolder content in gallery

Hi @King ,

You need metadata to filter the content, but could certainly put the folder names in fields to achieve this.

I use a similar method and have a SharePoint Designer 2013 Workflow to put the first two levels folders in two fields and then use these in both SharePoint grouped views and PowerApps galleries to show the records required.

You need to be familiar with Workflow construction for the below to be useful, but they are not difficult to do and have the added advantage of not using up Flow quotas.

I would like to show the items you see in the image that are in the folder called adjuntos de soporte in a gallery.

Can I achieve this with a flow?

 

thanks for your help

Re: show subfolder content in gallery

What helped me was to create a field in the library that stores the ID of a request

and applied the following formula in the gallery

 

Filter(
Adjuntos,
IDSolicitud = Text(galMisPendientes.Selected.ID)
)

 

Thanks for the help @WarrenBelz

Thanks @King  - and yes, that bypasses the whole folder issue and is actually what I do for specific project-related files.
