new list item > copy/paste folder > add link on each list row to redirect to library folder related to..

Hello guys, I want to create this:

when adding a new list item >> copy/paste a folder template in the library that takes the list item name. OK I did this 🙂

But I want to also add an list link to the folder created... and I need help for this..

any suggestions?

Hey, @loikite , if you could show us the actions that you used to make the folder.


What I'd suspect is that you're able to get the folder ID from the action that created it (wherever that was SharePoint/OneDrive/GoogleDrive) once you have that, you're on the road to making the URL.


For example, with a SharePoint folder you would have something like the following, where DOMAIN is your domain ( 😏 ) and the FOLDERID is the ... folder ID :

Just make a variable that stores/puts together the various details, and you can then amend the list/library column with that link using an "Update item" action.


I'm not suggesting that retrieving that information is easy if you're just searching for it, though. Hence why I am suggesting that you ensure that taking the ID is a part of the folder creation in the first place.
