SharePoint -- MS Flow creation for acknowledgement (3 Folder in which each folder consists of 10 different sub folders)

Hi Team/ @rsaikrishna  🙂

 

Scenario: I have 3 folders in document library on SharePoint online (lets say A, B, C) and under each folder I have 10 sub folders

(Eg: under folder A we have A1,A2.....A10 and same for folder B and C)

 

I have to create a recurrence flow with scheduled run once in 2 months, which will just for acknowledgement from me and my leader that the files uploaded are correct in each sub folders, but the problem which I am facing is the sub folders belongs to different person with different leader.

Eg: There are 10 sub folders under Folder A out of which 3 should come to me and my leader for acknowledgment and other sub folder goes to the one it belongs to and same applies for the sub folders which are in Folder B and C. 

 

Please do help me if you have any example flow for this situation, it will be a great help.

 

Note: I am trying if it can be possible in a single flow instead of making multiple flow for sub-folders.

Hi @rahul_sinha12 

I think you can achieve with a single flow. Try to do the steps in the flow.

1. Create a recurrence flow

2. Create an array with all the root folders like A,B & C.

3. Use the action 'Apply to each' on the above defined array and then inside the action add the below.

3. Use the action 'Get files (properties only)' action, which can be configured to the library and the folder from the array and can be configured to look for the sub-folders.

4. Use the action 'Apply to each' and then try to implement your logic like checking the files, leader and etc. 

 

Try it out, let us know if you have any issues. We are always there to support the community.

Thanks a lot @sudharsan1985 for your response. I am too new in this tool and this supporting forum too. 🙂

 

I am not able to get the third point on how to proceed with that, Could you please help me by letting me know the example flow on how to do it if you have (if possible).
