Sharepoint Create Folder

Glad to have possibility in flow to have an action to create Folder in Sharepoint and give permission to it for people.

Status: Completed

Hi all,


Happy to announce the 'Create new folder' action is now available in the SharePoint Connector! Smiley Happy

@StephenM your approach sounds very intersting, however yet I miss deeper knowledge. Would you be so kind to share some more details and maybe a screenshot or two to illustrate your procedure?

Thanks so much!

That would be a nice feature!

@StephenM  Curious how you're creating folders without creating files.    The "Create File" action requires a file to be added.  So I can put a value in the folder path that creates a new folder, but I then create a text file in the folder, then in the same flow delete the new text file.  I don't see a way to just create a folder.  Can you provide more detail on how you're creating folders?

agree with @markalan928 - also wonder and eager to learn how to create a folder without using a dummy file

This is insane!!   2 years later and we can't say that Flow can fully replace SharePoint Designer since it can't create a simple folder (the most basic need for content management).   Not happy 😞


Yet, MS Flow supports some useless 3rd party connectors... but MS is not prioritizing their own ecosystem benefits.


I'm sad and baffled...  and now my project has new risks.

MS Flow can create Sharepoint folders. I do a few dozen times a day with my flows in three quick steps. 


create a flow to create a file

make the location of where to save the file the folder you want to create

delete the file


you're left with the folder you wanted

creating folders and sub folders WITHOUT a dummy file is possible. i'm now doing it loads with my flows thanks to Pieter Veenstra's blog post


here's how...

I voted!


Please be a lad and vote my idea, to increase the approval timeout (or just general timeout) of flows to MORE THAN 30 DAYS!!


I'm at 155 votes, more is better.

This is definitely a must have
