Upload folders in custom orientation

Is the a way to keep this order but without the number? I want "General Submission Form" first etc.

Hey @darknight123 

keep this order to do what or in where? Within your flow this order should stay the same, if you want to create these as a folder within SharePoint, SharePoint has its own sorting usually based on the name of an item, same in OneDrive for Business. In SharePoint you could consider using the default "ID" column to sort your items, when they are created in the exact right order.

 

Does this help you? Otherwise please give me some more information.

Thanks for your feedback, so as already said: within Power Automate it will stay in this order, but in SharePoint usually the sorting is based on the field "Name", but the folders will be created in the exact same order you entered it, so you could use the Internal field ID (which is unique and an inceasing number) to sort your folders always in this order. But you need to be aware, if you want to add another folder somewhere in between, this sorting doesn't work anymore.
