Search and download multiple files from a website

Hi,

 

I need your help in creating a flow for downloading files from a website. 

 

Scenario: I have a list of files (with unique numbering) in excel. This number is used to download files from our internal website.

Instead of manually searching and downloading a single file at a time, I want to create a flow that would help me download multiple files using the list in Excel.

 

Thank you in advance.

Hi @Ankesh_49 , 

 

Thanks for your support. The video link has helped a lot to create a blue print of my flow.

But I'm stuck at a point, to which I couldn't find any solution. I have tried several actions, but none of them gave me the result I wanted. 

Issue faced: I use keywords to search documents from the internal website of my organisation. When the searched document is listed on the web page, I have to click on the document hyperlink to download the file.

I used the action Click link on web page  to select the document hyperlink, but I'm receiving an error while running the flow (screenshot attached).

Please let me know if you have any solution to overcome this issue.

 

Thanks in advance.

 

Best Regards,

Ajil

You are going to modify your selector to something that will work every time. Is there a different tag you could use? Here's a link to help:
