Dear Flow,

I have three (3) questions today


  1. Add keywords to files upon upload to Sharepoint Document Library
    • Is this a manual intervention task only?
    • Might there be a way to sniff out the image content and apply it as a tag upon upload?
  2. Rename files upon upload to Sharepoint Document Library
  3. Why is SharePoint "Move File" such a struggle?
    • Any good pointers out there?

Re: Dear Flow,

@abpmr_entarc :

To add additional metadata to a document, use an Update File Properties action after the upload.

You could evaluate the file extension using string expressions and add additional metadata to the file based on the file extension (Update File Properties).

I have issues with move file myself unless the libraries are identical.  I usually end up creating a new file and deleting the old rather than relying on move file.



If I have answered your question, please mark your post as Solved.
