SharePoint Files - all fields not just a few

When working with the Flow SharePoint File connector (On File Create), I notice it is very limited as to the "fields" available.

 

In SharePoint, we often create new metadata fields for our libraries - like Customer, Value, Assigned To, and so on.

 

I tried making a Flow such that as a Salesman adds a new Proposal to SharePoint (Word doc format), it would create a Microsoft CRM Opportunity to track it.  However, not enough data is available from the SharePoint file metadata to add to the Opportunity.

 

Specifically, SharePoint files have Created Date/By, Modified Date/By, but these aren't available in Flow.  In additon, we have added Customer (text field) and Quoted Value (Number field) to the document library in order to capture the meta-data and show it in the SharePoint view.  I want to add these to the Opportunity.

 

The SharePoint List connector grabs all the fields/meta-data - the Files connector does not.

Hello - this feature is now available. You can read more about it here: https://flow.microsoft.com/blog/support-for-sharepoint-document-library-properties/

I need this as well, because I would like to dave emails AND attachments to SharePoint lists. To achieve this, I create a file in a library for the attachment and an item in list. In the list all meta data is available.

Then, we use SharePoint WF to update metadata of the file in the library to get email text, date, adress, etc. in one place.

Anybody a better idea?

Yeah I agree, alot of what I used to do in SharePoint Designer workflows was making decision on the custom meta data entered against the file. So for example If a feild has a particular value send it to one person if another send it to someone else. 

 

Also it would be good to be able to trigger off those values as well. For example, have a field "send to supplier" when set to true it emails the suppler the file and then sets the feild back to false.

Can someone tell me if there is any progresion on this point?

Same here!  Will this be in development any time soon?  This would be a huge improvement to help get away from the old sharepoint workflows.  I was trying to use "Content type" and was disapointed it was not the Sharepoint Content Type, rather just the type of file.  Upvote!
