Automatically updating flow actions after relocation of spreadhseet

Hi all,


I have various flows that interact with an Excel spreadsheet. I would like to move the spreadhseet to another SharePoint location. Is there a way that enables all the actions in all flows to automatically update to the new location? Because modifying each action which interacts with the excel and is rooted to the current location would take ages. 


Thanks in advance

Hi @vradley 


Please see environment variables.  This might be helpful in your case.

Thanks for your reply however, I don't think solves the issue as I am not creating a new flow. The flow is already there, I am just migrating the Excel file. 


So if I use environment variables I would have to create these variables. This would be useful when you are creating a new flow and you foresee that some of the things your actions interact with will be moved in the future.
