Get email of the creator of a new file

Hi guys,

 

Is there a way to get the email of the creator of a new file in an approval flow? I cant see it in dynamic content

 

I want to sent an email to the owner of the file if it is approved or rejected.

 

Appreciate any advise i could get.

 

Thanks!

Re: Get email of the creator of a new file

Hi @v-yuazh-msft, thx for answering, I was using the when a file is created but the single one, not with (properties only), because when the new file is approved I want to create the same file in a new folder and delete the one that was in the old folder, I see that if I use the accion with propierties I can get the email of the creator but I cannot create the new file or maybe I cant see that option.

I ran into this dilemma as well and solved it with using both actions, first get property only for the email address and then get file (content) for storing it in a different or 2nd place
