Re: item link to open word online

Hi @pierre1,

 

The "When a file is created in a folder" trigger would not return the Link to item dynamic content, please consider take a try to change your trigger into the "When a file is created or modified (Properties only)" trigger.

 

I have made a test on my side and please take a try with the following workaround:19.JPG

 

More details about the "When a file is created or modified (Properties only)" trigger, please check the following article:

Best regards,

Re: item link to open word online

Hi @pierre1,

 

Could you please share a screenshot of your flow's configuration?

Do you want to open the file on word online via clicking the item link?

 

If you want to open the file (stored within your SharePoint) on word online via clicking the item link, I think the Link to item dynamic content could achieve your needs. I have made a test on my side and please take a try with the following workaround:14.JPG

The flow works successfully as below:15.JPG

More details about the Link to item dynamic content within SharePoint connector, please check the following article:

Best regards,

Kris

Re: item link to open word online

Thank you again for your help.

 

your option works well but my intention was to fo:

when a file is moved to folder "to be approved", Then start the approval process

 

based on this,  it doesnt work since when I move a file to the folder  "to be approved", the dile is not considered as "created"file

 

any suggestion?
