I want to create a flow so when someone saves a file in SharePoint (or rename it) then the file metadata will automatically update based on certain rules
Let's say the file name is "Project_DSR_Rev01"
Since the file has the word "DSR" this will trigger Microsoft Flow rule and update the metadata for the file name
Hope this makes sense if not please ask me questions
Hi @moeazazi ,
Do you have a column of type Managed Metadata and you want to update the column value when the file name contains certain word?
Please create a flow likes below. With the trigger When a file is created in a folder, add a Condition to check if the File name contains DSR, if yes, update file properties.
I attached a picture to show the column inside the folder
When I upload a file, I want to create a flow that triggers when a file name contains keywords like "DSR" or "RFI" or whatever. When the system identifies that it will fill the metadata such as Deliverable Name and Functional area (see attached photo)
So if the file name is DSR, it will automatically fill the deliverable name with Daily Status Report (DSR) and functional area with Engineering. If the file name is RFI it will fill the deliverable name with Request For Information (RFI) and function area with Documentation and Records
The purpose of the flow is to fill the deliverable name and functional area for 100-150 keywords like the examples above to avoid writing the metadata it manually.
Also, Is it possible to input the trigger keyword in a spreadsheet and the flow condition will read the keyword from that source instead of typing DSR, RFI, etc
Thanks for your support, it's really appreciated
