Very interesting question.. let us first understand the background of what is all 3 about. MSFlow - To Automate a business process we generally use workflows. Ms flow are alternative to workflows. Before MS flow, Sharepoint designer workflow was used for simple things but for complex things you had to rely on custom workflow(visual studio) or any third ...

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 ...

Your formula for date time like this: 1. formatDateTime(triggerOutputs()?['body/Start Time']) 2. formatDateTime(triggerOutputs()?['body/End Time']) Flow input: Regards, Chandani Prajapati

Workflow triggers always run once event is already occurred it will not wait til item is approved or anything. If you triggering point is item deleted, it does trigger MS flow(just tried this) but it won't anything for status as you trigger is when item is deleted. If you want to handle situation than item is deleted when it is only approved. you should ...

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.

Try HTTP Request to sharepoint:

To obtain mandatory metadata you do not need a flow (or a workflow). It is just enough to add columns with the metadata options and mark them as 'require that this column contains information'. The classic view will force users to fill in the metadata on upload more than the new experience view. A workflow is needed if you need specific people to approve ...

This request has been taken up , at least mentioned in the community forum so that Microsoft goes ahead and gives a solution for this . Something similar to this has been raised and since you are facing a similar problem please vote or leave your comments here .

If your flow is running on an automated trigger then it will always run in the context of an owner of flow (Who created the flow). So that is who shows up in Modified By field in your SharePoint list. However the manually triggered flows, like the ones that start with a button in a PowerApp runs in the context of the user who presses the button. Possible ...

It seems to be possible to change accepted user connections to run a flow in context of the starting user instead of the creators connection. You should read this article. Maybe this will work for you: https://flow.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/advanced-button-sharing/

Flow runs outside of SharePoint and most likely calls web services, so the only restrictions are normal SharePoint permissions on the user to read or update items. Another way to think about it... any user with read permissions can read data from a SharePoint list using a web browser or the REST API (web services). The SharePoint web services are callable ...

The problem was caused by UserId being null in several elements of the data received from the HTTP Get, while that is set as required in the JSON Schema... initially we solved it by using the below in the HTTP Get: _api/web/sitegroups/getbyname('Legal Owners')/users?$filter=UserId+ne+null Then we were given a better and more elegant solution on the Power ...

Try removing UserId from the 'required' array at the end of your JSON schema. Any values specified in that array must be present with every return/trigger, or the Flow will fail. If 'Email' is the only value you truly need, I would make that the only required value. Like this: "required": [ "Email" ]

You want to add/remove AD group to/from list item automatically? You can use a SharePoint 2010 platform workflow to achieve it. In your workflow, you can use Impersonation Step and use "Remove List Item permissions" or "Replace List Item Permissions" action to remove or replace AD groups' permission. A blog for your reference: How to give item level ...

As per the last answer: Workflows always run "after" the event. You could, however, use remote event receivers. If you use SPRemoteEventType.ItemDeleting you will get notified before the event is processed (i.e. before the item is really "gone"). You could create a flow with a http-request-trigger (it's "premium", though) to process the event.

Ok, managed to make it work. What I did is instead of Get Items, I used the Get Item action, removed the filtering action and input that into the Get Item action itself, to compare the ID of the item in the first list with the copied item in the second list and based on that to update.

You won't be able to use a Flow to query or terminate another Flow You'll instead need to drive your Flow by using informative custom columns in your affected list or library - for example, "Workflow Status" - and build conditions in your Flow that inspect these values to determine whether to proceed or not. For example, we could setup a list with a ...
