That is definitely more clever, but I am talking about FREE solution for PDF conversion:

Sharepoint/Get file content

OneDrive/Create File  

OneDrive/Convert (PDF)

OneDrive/Delete File

SharePoint/Create file

This definitely works on docx files and suits my simple needs.

That would be perfect for me if Flow supported managed metadata columns 😞 

 

I believe that will be resolved by the end of the year

 

Thanks

You create a content type having the colums of your wish.

You set this content type working from a dotx file that includes your metadata in the docx  using word quick parts / document properties.

You can set these metadata with sharePoint/update file properties ction from Flow.

The above PDF conversion will then engrave your metadate into the PDF (text).

I used the above to have a fixed header for my SOP documents listing Approver and approval date etc.

Conversion of a document to PDF is sort of a must in many document workflows. As this is already present in Word Online (download as PDF), it will be a logical next step to include it in Flow too.

thank you @katonage

 

 

My content type has 7 managed metadata columns which are still not picked up by the update file properties command. I have had word that this will be working by the end of the year

You can get the file content and do whatever you want with it (e.g. Send an email attachment).

Thanks for the update @Stephen

 

When will you be releasing this feature for SharePoint please because I still cannot copy a file which has 7 managed metadata columns between libraries?
