Copying and renaming a recurring PowerPoint deck

Hey all,

Very novice, brand new P.A user here - hoping someone can help with this!


I have a PowerPoint deck that I send out every week to some colleagues, which they populate with high-level info, which is then provided to some Execs via Teams. We then archive the previous weeks deck in a Teams folder (which is, obviously, connected to a SharePoint site that I use intermittently).

I would like to know:

1. On a scheduled date, can P.A automatically copy the most recent PPT deck, and rename it with the current weeks Friday date?

2. Can it then store it in our archive, as well as then pinning the created deck in our Teams Files tab?

3. If possible, can I also rename the title slide + can I add a blank shape to each slide with some text contained within it?


Basically, create and copy deck > update dates > add graphics to a part of each slide > archive previous weeks deck.


Thank you so much!

You can easily copy, rename and save any file in Power Automate.  However, there is no connector available in a cloud Flow.  You might consider using a Desktop Flow to update the slides (requires a premium license).
