update file properties not working consistently

Hi All,

I have created the following Flow

closedpdfa.jpgclosedpdfb.jpg

The issue is that the file properties are not updated for every PDF that is created with this flow. I use the update file properties to trigger other flows, so i need the file properties to update for every time the flow runs.

 

please have a solution.

Hi @ MattJ,

 

Could you please share a full screenshot of the configuration of your flow?

Could you please share more details about your issue?

Could you please share a screenshot of the run details of your flow?

 

Do you mean the "Update file properties" would run,however wouldn't update the file properties when a PDF file is created in the library?

Does the  the "Update file properties" would run to update the file properties when another type file such as DOC file is created in the library?

 

From your screenshot of "Update file properties" action I couldn't see what property of the file would be updated.

 

Please share more details so we could provide a proper workaround for you. 

 

Regards,
Alice Zhang

Hi Alice,

The flow history shows all runs have succeeded. The issue is that sometimes the flow updates the file properties and sometimes it does not.

Bit short on time, what is the most efficient way to screen shot runs? doing it with paints take too much time?

Hi Alice,

I thought that i had provided a screen shot of the full configuration of the flow, what was missing?

 

thanks
