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.

The field Library Name in the Update file properties action can't be dynamic? I mean... put as a text variable with the title of the library instead of lookup for from the options.

Thanks!
