Re: Get attachment content

@Yash Have a look at this: http://www.sharepointing.co.uk/2018/01/15/copy-sharepoint-list-attachments-to-document-library/.  If you want get users to upload a file through Flow panel, you will need to get the content of the file and create a new file.

Re: Get attachment content

Could you please explain a bit for what you would like to achieve?

For the List attachment content, do you mean the newly added item, or all the items within the SharePoint list?

 

Please check my previous response for how to work with the Get attachment content action:

https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/General-Flow-Discussion/Copy-attachments-from-one-SharePoint-lis...

 

The steps should be as below:

Follow the instructions I mentioned in the thread above to configrue the File Name, File content.

Re: Get attachment content

Michael,

 

I am accepting inputs from users in a SharePoint list. Users can also attach content in the list. I would like to extract the content and save it in document library. I will try the Flow you have explained, this should work for me.

 

Thanks,

Yash

I created this video to clarify dependencies on this question, although it's not the exact scenario it should help you understand how to get file content from attachments. Please let me know if it is helpful.
