I have made a flow that creates a folder in a document library called "Maintenance" whenever a new record is created in a list called "Issues". The new folder has a "name" of the Issue ID. The problem is the connected web parts don't allow me to link with the "name" column. How do i copy the folder name into another column as a next step in the flow. This will allow me to connect the web parts.
You can try the following steps to update a separate meta data column in the Library:
Assuming a column in the [Maintenance] Library already exists to store the item Id from the Issue list. In this example, it's [IssueID], a Number type column.
Add [Update item] SharePoint action after [Create new folder]
For the List Name, select Enter custom value from the dropdown and then type in the Library name, Maintenance. Meta data column should be visible after the library information is refreshed.
Note: Action [Create new folder] returns the Id of the folder item after it gets created. Need to use the same Id to update the meta data column in the library.
