Add actions to check in, check out and publish files in a Sharepoint Library
Happy to announce that this is now rolling out! Check the SharePoint connector today to see three new actions:
1. Check in file
2. Check out file
3. Discard check out
The 'Get file properties' action will also be updated in the coming weeks to include check in/check out status in the output.
Definately need this to publish major versions in WCM.
Hi @pfoldager & @Anonymous,
There is already a workaround for this. You can use CSOM in Azure Functions and trigger that Azure Function in your Flow.
Let's hope for a check in / check out / publish action in Flow, but currently - although I don't think it's perfect - the Azure Function is the best you can do...
For more info, read the following excellent blog post by Julie Turner:
Thank you @Laskewitz. The use of the CSOM in Azure Function requires more knowledge than I currently have. So I will have to wait for the chekc-out / check-in functions to be available directly in Flow.
@pfoldager: I can imagine, but I can't make it easier for you at the moment 😉
This is now planned, per this blog post: https://flow.microsoft.com/blog/setting-sharepoint-s-person-choice-and-lookup-fields/
We also need the ability to publish pages such as Team News automatically. This requires the CheckIn function.
This is marked as planned. Is there a timeframe we can plan for?
