Populate columns in document library

Hello,

 

Please have a look at the flow as shown in the printscreen below.

 

The button allows you to take a picture and say 2 things about the picture (what machine it is and what it is doing).

 

It would be useful to be able to add this picture to a documente library (this is already possible), but also add the values selected in the 2 fields to columns created for the documents in the library (as far as I can tell this is not possible). The result should be something as shown in the second printscreen

Re: Populate columns in document library

Hi @wplingers,

 

Could you please share a full screenshot of your flow's configuration?

Do you want to add the values selected in the 2 drop down fields of the Flow Button trigger into the columns created in your SP library?

 

I think Microsoft Flow could achieve your needs. I have made a test on my side and please take a try with the following workaround:22.JPG

Within File Name field of the "Create file" action, type the following formula:

concat(utcNow(),'.jpg')

Within "Update file properties" action, specify Site Address and List Name. Id field set to ItemId dynamic content of the "Create file" action.

 

The flow works successfully as below:25.JPG

Best regards,

Kris
