Stephen,
 
The link goes nowhere.  I need to know how this works.  Especially if ODFB also includes shared directories in SP Online.  Do I need to copy the file from SP first??  Does that also mean that every user needs to have an active ODFB in order for the file to be converted?  I cant afford for that, because it is an avenue that may end up not working, and leaving things without a terminal end of process.  I cant be checking that all PDF files are where they should be, and manually making them where they are not.  That defeats the purpose of the entire ambition I am working on.

This one is NOT completed... the Convert action should be available in the SharePoint Connector without OneDrive needed. If OneDrive (for Business) can do it --> make it available for SharePoint actions??

Yes, please.

In real life for some companies this could be a life changer. 3rd party connectors available for Flow (Doc parser or plumsail) are too expensive (when comparing with other ms licenses) and working with those 3rd party solutions challenges us to expose our private information with someone we don't really know.

It's a Tier A functionality

I Believe Ms Flow Team should clarify their position on this matter:

By not developing a solution "convert to PDF" on purpose = We must assume there's a commercial interest on defending a 3rd party vendor business aka "Muhimbi" to sell their services almost on a monopoly basis for sharepoint. And that's fine, it's business, but at least clarify currente position and future intentions on this matter.

For our company it's no clear data rights according new EU rules could be in violation if using "Muhimbi" services. 

 

 

It's a pitty to limit such a a great product like sharepoint with this tricks.

Hi @moutinhoabreu,

 

As someone who works at Muhimbi I can confirm that there are no 'tricks' or commercial agreements in place between Microsoft and Muhimbi, other than the usual standard partnership agreements.

 

With regards to EU rules, Muhimbi provides a choice of data centres (including an EU one) and we process personal data in compliance with our obligations as a data processor under the General Data Protection Regulation (EU). You can find all necessary details at https://support.muhimbi.com/hc/en-us/sections/115004098728-Legal-Privacy-Security

 

If you have any questions or comments then please drop support@muhimbi.com a line. We are happy to help, and believe me.... there is no trickery Smiley Happy
