Trigger to automate Document generation?

I'm trying to replace Google Forms, Google Sheets, Google Docs,  & Ultradox  with O365.

Customers will fill out the Forms (O365 Forms)

that will automatically go into spreadsheet, filling in the next available row (O365 Excel)


Here is where I do not know if it will work or not....

when the Form response hits the Spreadsheet, it needs to Trigger (something, add-on or Flow???) to automatically create 2 documents (the templates will be in O365 Word) and place them in 2 different folders.


Is this something Flow can do? be that middleman who causes the Trigger to auto generate the docs everytime a new row is added to Excel?


So far, no one, not even Customer Service can answer this. 😞

Re: Trigger to automate Document generation?

Hi Lalla,


I guess you could create a flow which is triggered by “Microsoft Forms – when a new response is submitted”.

To create documents, you should specify a cloud storage to place the files, such as OneDrive for Business, etc.

Say you will use OneDrive for Business, please consider to use the action “OneDrive for Business - Create file”.

In the Create file action, specify the Folder Path. For the File name field, you could add a file type such as .xlsx so that the file can be created as an Excel file. Then in the File Content field, specify the information you want from the dynamic content.




Please try it on your side if this will meet your needs.


If you need more help, please feel free reply.


Best regards,
