Import Images from local folder to shared folder daily - IS THERE A WAY??

I was trying to see if I can set up a flow to run daily to import images from my local folder to a shared folder but was not able to find a way. If anyone has any idea how this approach can be done please let me know! 

 

Thank you!

Hi, 

I was able to figure it out, had to install Local Gateway. Here I attached two picture for anyone who will need similar approach with flows copying local files from one folder to another.

Hi,

You can use trigger - recurrance and set your frequency.

 

Then search "File System" for all the actions relevant to accessing local file system.

 

You will need a Power BI Date Gateway installed which you can do under the "Gateways" on the left of flow.

Hi Gristy,
I have tried with File System but is not showing folders that has images! Which action would you recommend to use for finding images within local folder and have you done anything similar in the past?
Please let me know your comments.
