SharePoint to SharePoint update document

Is there a flow template that will update a document in SharePoint when you make edits to the same document in a different SharePoint?

I don't believe there is a template that will meet your requirement.

My suggestion is to copy the file over to the second library when an edit is made.  By default, the new file will be a new version of the existing file.

 

On another note, if the document is updated frequently, this is not a good idea......

Also, when a document is being edited, auto saves could cause your Flow to fire.

 

Another option would be to use a recurrence trigger that copies files to the second library if they have been updated in, for example, the past 24 hours.

 

If you need anexample, please let me know what path you want to take and I'll provide an example.

Re: SharePoint to SharePoint update document

Thank you for the example.  I created, tested and saved the flow and Microsoft reports it ran successfully.  BUT it did not update the file from one sharepoint site to the other sharepoint site.  Not sure where I went wrong.

You need to take a look at a run that was successful.  Take a look at the output of each action and condition.  Doing so should lead you to where the issue exists.
