I have the following requirements to be implemented inside SharePoint online:-
We have custom list named "Folder Structure Template", with 10 check-boxes, as follows:-
- Cost structure checkbox.
- Asset Structure checkbox.
- and so on
Based on the above check-boxes, the folder structure will be created. So if the user selects the "Cost Structure" checkbox and creates a new item, a sub-folder named "Costing" will be created and so on. If the user selects 2 check-boxes then 2 sub-folders will be created..
Each sub-folder will be linked to a couple of metadata and the documents inside the folders should inherit the metadata
So I am not sure if any of the available SharePoint tools support this type of implementation; Flow, SharePoint workflow, or document sets? or do I need to write some code inside a console application or inside a remote event receiver to implement this?
EDIT Based on @Drek comment, I will add this extra info. We want to build a folder structure for our company so users can create a new item inside a custom list >> inside the create form the user can chose from 10 check-boxes named (Cost, Asset, Info, external parties, meetings, service manual, contacts, back-up plan, disaster recovery, IT). Now lets say a user creates a new item inside the custom list and the user selects these 4 check-boxes:- 1. IT. 2. Meeting. 3. Cost. 4. Asset.
The system should then automatically create a new main folder with the custom list item ID + 4 sub-folders inside a document library; named IT, Meeting, Cost & Asset.
Also each folder will be linked to managed metadata columns.
