I have SharePoint records in a list that are dynamically created with Power Automate. Once the record is created in my SharePoint Online list, how can I say...

  • Once the record is created, take the attachment value and copy it to the thumbnail column (Cover Photo) instantly so that the thumbnail has a visible image. (Is this possible today?)

1 Answer 1


Neither the new Image column or the Hyperlink or Picture column can be directly updated using flow.

A workaround is to use Send HTTP request to SharePoint action to update Hyperlink or Picture field.

Please see the references here: Microsoft Flow – Update a Hyperlink or Picture field. / MS Flow and SharePoint Picture Columns: A Trick.

  • This saved me much. I got it working on my end. Many thanks!
