Power App - Flow to SharePoint

Scenario

A rental property management employee visits a property. The employee uses Power App to take a number of photos. Photos are uploaded to SharePoint. The easy bit.

 

Problem - Flow SharePoint navigation check and or create folders to store images

Images need to be saved to a specific folder for each property. Within that folder images would need to be stored in a folder for the year, month.

 

For example, Images>PropertyA>2018>Aug.

 

The next visit to property A, images>PropertyA>2018>Dec.

 

Image upload needs to check if property A, folder 2018, folder Aug exists if not create year and month folder. If 2018>Aug folder exists upload images to the folder. Occasionally more than one visit might be necessary for example refurbishment project. The next visit might be the same month so  images would be stored in the appropriate month folder.

 

This provides employees with a way to quickly locate property images for specified year and month. The reason employees need to compose and send 'Word' landlord reports. If multiple property images are stored to a single document library or list it becomes problematical to locate all the images for a site inspection for a specific date as all property images are stored within a single list. Errors are inevitable.   

 

My initiate research suggests this isn't possible or instructional documentation isn't easily located and or available to be able to do this.

Hi @CABIRD,

 

Please take the following flow for a reference. In the action Create file, please use a dynamic content in the Folder Path. Then when an email comes in with the same subject, the attachments would be saved in the same folder, while if the subject is different, flow will create a new folder, saving the attachment to the new folder.

Please take it for a reference.
