Re: create folder inside another folder in library

Hi @fd00094 


Can you create a screenshot of the flow? 


I think it should create the folder 3 when folder 1 is already present. You might want to check the number spacing and also the case for the folders. (Folder 1 vs folder1 etc.)


Hope this Helps!
