This has been a matter discussed in Microsoft's Power Users Community within several threads. A concluding topic, save an email to a document library, sheds some light for how you may actually succeed with your requirement. As using Flow's functionality to re-attach email's attachments to a new file seemingly just does not work, you can achieve the same ...

You can use "Edited" trigger, but check document status using "Send an HTTP request to SharePoint" action. You can use below REST query to get the document with status _api/web/GetFileByServerRelativeUrl(@FileUrl)?@FileUrl='/sites/your-site/Docs/File.docx'&$select=CheckOutType,Level CheckOutType: 0: online 1: offline 2: none File ...

SPD is still supported with SharePoint 2016. Mainstream support ends in 2021, and extended support ends in 2026. So one answer is to keep maintaining existing workflows in 2013, and look into the new tools for new solutions. (if you're concerned about the 2021 date, then you should already be concerned that the end of mainstream support for 2013 has already ...

You can use Approvals in Microsoft Flow and you can respond to your approvals (Approve or Reject) and provide an optional message directly from your outlook inbox. Microsoft Learn - Official documentation: Build an approval request. Reference: Respond to your approvals from your inbox and Set an Approval Expiry.

Would Created != Modified work? Something like this: @not(equals(triggerBody()?['Created'], triggerBody()?['Modified'])) "Yes" in this scenario would be modified (its a not). You can just adjust accordingly.

In that case you have to use Get Item Action of Flow and update the fields UPDATE you can use the above displayed actions.

Through auditing, SharePoint can track file downloads. But auditing is a report rather than a real time trigger. I'm not sure you can catch the event in real time, if that's necessary?! Check out Logging people who download files in SharePoint.

Mentioned in the article:https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/flow/billing-questions "Whenever a flow is triggered, whether by an automatic trigger or by manually starting it, this is considered a run." So I think test run also counts as a run.

Yes, so long as your recipient is using Outlook 2016 or Outlook Web app Microsoft has named this feature "Actionable Messages". To implement this, you would add a "Start Content Approval" action in Flow, which will send out approval request emails. All recipients will receive an email that can be approved or rejected (with comments) without leaving ...

I don't know if it's possible, but you could use flow itself to export and import flows. And maybe you could build a loop to deploy it to several libraries with the library as parameter. This post describes options to extract and deploy flows with flow: http://johnliu.net/blog/2017/12/you-must-copy-all-your-flows-to-sharepoint-simple-ideas-are-the-most-...

I've found that Modern SharePoint Events Lists don't work intuitively with Flow, but with HTTP Requests it is still possible. When Flow creates an SP.Data.EventsListItem, it doesn't provide a value for the property fAllDayEvent. This seemed to prevent the Event Item from showing up in Modern SharePoint event pages and event webparts. You can view all the ...

You would need to make a "shadow" field which you compare to see if an email has been sent already. So create a boolean field called MailSent, default it to "No". Now change your flow to make it only send mail if the field is equal to "No" - and when that is the case set the field value to "Yes".

Create a SharePoint workflow to update the Path and Name property by Update List item action.

This currently not possible with Flow. Only list triggers expose custom metadata properties. It is currently on the development team's backlog, however, and should be available in the future. You can vote for this feature here, which may make it a higher priority (pure speculation, I have no evidence/proof this will do anything now that it is a planned ...

You can use the Data Management Gateway to connect Flow/PowerApps/PowerBI to on-prem resources. Flow and PowerApps won't be able to access all data types in SharePoint pre-2019 on-prem, however. Test your specific scenario to see if it works.

You need to configure the onprem gateway and you should have the global admin account to create flow and configure gateway. Access to download and install the On-Premises data gateway on a server. Access to a SharePoint 2013 or 2016 environment. Already have a subscription set up with PowerApps and Flow. SharePoint Gateway: PowerApps and Flow

Microsoft Flow is a cloud service. You can use it against SharePoint 2016 however you must deploy the Data Management Gateway and use that gateway when making connections from Flow. There are limitations when using the Data Management Gateway with SharePoint 2016; namely (last I tried) it could not resolve MMS fields. SharePoint 2010 Workflows may be a ...

One of the actions is sharepoint: update list item. It will ask for the id of the list item, just use the id of the item from a previous step. Be careful though, this action is a PITA: if your list has 20 fields, all 20 fields will be added in the designer. choice fields will have their default values set, so you'll need to go through and clear those as to ...

You can use Flow with classic, you just can't do it from the command bar. You can go into Flow directly and work with your classic sites/libraries from there.

Yes, you are right. You need to use Send an HTTP request to SharePoint action in Microsoft Flow in order to create a SharePoint Group. Try Using it as given in below image: Output: Group with name GroupFromFlow is created.

Solution 1: You can create a workflow or Microsoft flow/power automate to update the Email address field based on the Person or Group field. Solution 2: If you are not going to use those email address values later (you don't need to save emails in column) and you just want to show the email in SharePoint list view then you can also achieve it using JSON ...

Microsoft Flow has trigger action When a new response is submitted where you have to set Form ID to listen this event when MS Forms is submitted. And it takes only one Form ID value in this control. So, unfortunately, there is no way right now that you can make common flow to listen all your MS Forms together. You will have to create separate flows for them....

You can achieve this using Power Automate. (Reference: Get Days of the Month) Use the Recurrence trigger and set it to get executed every month. Below is the complete flow. Save the Start of the month in compose action. startOfMonth(utcNow()) Save the End of the month in the compose action. subtractFromTime(startOfMonth(addToTime(outputs('StartofTheMonth')...

You can use Plumsail Actions to do this. This is the instruction. The example fo Flow: Note: This is a paid solution and I'm a member of

wjervis has the right answer. But to add a bit, you can actually use a "when a new item is created" with a document library, and then you'll have access to all metadata. If you try this, just type in the library display name in the "list name" field. (libraries don't show up on the list, but again, this will work if you manually type it in). But, don't get ...

There was no such functionality to import/export flows or any other backup option previously. But you can configure Data Loss Prevention (DLP) policies as shown here for prevention.
