I'm new to Flow and have just started to look at what it can do for me in my Job,
I'm looking for an option to take a SharePoint List attachment and move / copy it into a SharePoint Document Library.
Can this be done in Flow?
If anyone has any how to's that would be really helpful.
Solved! Go to Solution.
You could try adding a switch control
The On value would be the Status Column, selected under the Dynamic Content
Then in the case equals - you would enter Cleared in your example, then add an action to copy or move them to the other document library.
Add another Case by selecting the + symbol the Euals for the second case would be Submitted/Waiting and you then define what happens to that if anything, and so on
Instead of a Switch control, you could even try a condition control
Choose the value as your column nameStatus is equal to Cleared, if Yes then add the action to copy/move the documents to another document library and if No, the workflow does not do anything if no actions are added, or in the No, you could add another condition and so on.
Hope this gives you some ideas/help
I have tried to create the same flow, for getting all the attachment items from my SharePoint list, into a Document Library in SharePoint, but the flow ended up with an Error can you help?
You could try following this solution from @v-yuazh-msft
Solved: Re: Copy SharePoint Lists attachments to a SharePo... - Power Platform Community (microsoft....
I did done the same steps but the flow stopped after 4 minutes it moved like 30 items from the SharePoint list to the SharePoint Document Library I created (before).
I don't recall having a limits that I could only move certain amounts of items
When I built my flow, I did the following
My Trigger was when an item is created in a SharePoint List
Get attachments from the SharePoint List, then add Get attachment Content
I had a holding location to store my documents (Create File, then from there I moved the files as I wanted to capture Metadata and replace the file if the file was already there)
You can also add delete attachment to the end of the flow
See information Copy attachments from existing sharepoint list
Look at my screenshot,
The Flow Worked but it shows a Action Error:
An action failed. No dependent actions succeeded.
But it moved the attachments in the Document lIbrary, I have 64 Items and 45 had Attachments attached with it.. so 45 attachments were moved there but why the flow gave that error?
In the Apply to Each action you will notice you have Next Failed
That means that the workflow has failed in some places, if you can click on that option to see where it did fail and look at the error message that you got, it would refer to the Previous Action Get Items where it could not get some of the items for a particular reason, and the error message that should display will tell us more.
