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

Can you add the possibility of adding Folders on Sharepoint Libraries

Level: Powered On

You can work around this by posting a new file to a new path. The Sharepoint API automagically handles creation of the folder. Drop in a readme.txt and you're good to go.

Just created an Azure Function to do it. You can use a swagger definition in your Microsoft Flow to call it. Read this blog post for more information.

I followed until creating a custom connector in flow. In creating custom connector I got below error.

“We weren’t able to download the Swagger 2.0 metadata. Please make sure the URL is publicly accessible.”

Could you please help me solve it?

If you can create folders under conditions such as posting users, management will be simplified.
We hope for early implementation.

Would love just a basic copy folder and contents from one library, site and/or site collection to another.

- create a new agenda OneNote page from template

I would like to be able to create a folder, specify content type, and update properties.

You can easily create SharePoint folders and a few subfolders at a time in Microsoft Flow with the help of Plumsail Actions.
It has Plumsail SP connector that provides a set of actions for SharePoint management, including creating, moving, copying folders cross-site.

I'm creating folders in sharepoint all the time with flow using variables in Folder Path line in the Flow 


For example I need a folder for each sales order, so we have a place to put docs for that order. If the sales order is "14545" then I want to create that folder within the "Orders" doc library (if it's not already there). 


so i use this as the path



where <folder> is the sales order number


in reality my use is more complex as i need this sales order folder to actually be created under a parent folder inside the orders folder


So I use this   /Orders/<parent_folder>/<folder>


I caclulate the <parent_folder> variable based off the <folder> value within the Flow with a series of expressions so end up with this folder structure


/Orders/14500 to 14599/14545


this way it keeps things nice and tidy for me. and this flow is kicked off by a SQL trigger that stores all sales orders, so when a new one is raised it fires and creates this nice folder structure in Sharepoint. 


Simples 🙂
