Hi @Anonymous ,

The "List file in folder" action has limit with 20 items in microsoft flow currently.

If you would like the limitation to be increased or don't want to have the limitation, you could vote for idea in flow idea forum so it might be considered in the future releases:

Wow!! This is the most ridiculous decision I have ever heard!!   Who wants automation for only 20 files...!!!  Even worse, let's not indicate anywhere (tooltip, name) about this ridiculous limit and have people spend hours troubleshooting why only 20 files get ever returned...

 

It would be faster to rename 20 files by hand!   Either rename the pathetic action to "list on 20 files" or  please remove this unusable limit ASAP...

Hi!

There is a overwrite solution that will solve your problem.

 

  • Go to the action settings 
     
    - Turn on Pagination, and set a new maximum
  • Your flow will ignore the maximum off 20 files and use the giving maximum.

Thanks RorySmit,

your solution worked perfectly in my scenarios. I had the same issue in few flows I created. 

Simple and effective. 

Thank you very much!
