Copy list item into folder on another destination list



I have two lists, a destination list which has been setup with a folder for each users with special permissions applied; the second list is used to collect requests from users, with the goal of moving the item to the destination list to the correct folder, depending on the user that created the item.


My flow now successfully identifies the correct folder in the destination list, but i can't find a way of creating the item in the folder - the action just creates it at the root of the list. At suggestions would be appreciated.

Folders are not supported in the out of the box actions for lists, lists are generally not used with folders although there are some use cases like yours where it is handy.


The REST API does not support creating list items inside folders.


You can see some discussion here:


They recommend to try and create the list item and then do some rest call's to move the item.
