Generic Flow for SharePoint List or Library

Has anyone came accross the way to reuse the same Flow for multiple Lists or Libraries if Flow is triggered by

"When item is created" or "For selected item"?


The Idea is to have an SPO generic list and/or library in multiple locations using the same FLOW.

Hi @kazanko,


I have opened idea for this some time ago and still not found any workaround for this.

Re: Generic Flow for SharePoint List or Library

Hi @kazanko,


Could you please show a bit more about your scenario?

Do you want to trigger same FLOW when an item is created in different SharePoint lists or libraries (multiple SharePoint lists or libraries in different site locations)?


If you want to trigger same FLOW when an item is created in multiple SharePoint lists or libraries (in different site locations), I afraid that there is no way to achieve your needs in Microsoft Flow currently. When you use "When an item is created" trigger or "For a selected item" trigger within your flow, you must specify unique Site Address and unique List Name within that Site Address.


If you would like this feature to be added in Microsoft Flow, please vote the following idea:

Re: Generic Flow for SharePoint List or Library

thank you for the reply v-xida-msft. I did vote.

This is definately a miss. It should not be dificult to interigate Item Type instead of or as an alternative to list id.

SharePoint workflow has this feature, so converting from generic SP worklow to dosens or more Flows is counter productive.


Hope this is fixed soon.
