Microsoft Flow - Copy Items between SharePoint lists/ libraries

If you every need an no code app to copy files between SharePoint online libraries. You could follow way of doing.  Navigate to Microsoft Flow ( click here ) and choose empty template to start with.  Then choose Power App trigger as below.  Source File: You will be required to use "Get File Properties" action to get information of file/ item.  Source file Path = <Folder Path> <File Name with Extension> Destination: You could build destination file path as below; Destination File Path = <Hard-coded Destination Folder Name> "File Name with Extension"  

Microsoft Flow - SharePoint Online document approval based on user input value (Properties/ Metadata)

If you need to approve document based on user input input value in the Microsoft flow, it will be challenging. Because, Microsoft Flow does not have trigger to fire on document check-in (versioning enabled on document library). What came to mind is to have a "wait until" action which we had in other workflow systems. So, I had included "Do Until" action checked until there is a value in "Title". In my scenario, I considered "Title" as required column. Microsoft flow advanced mode expression to check property as below; @not(empty(body ('Get_file_properties') ?['Title']))

Could not delete actions (nodes) on Microsoft flow workflow

If you are using web browser other than Internet Explorer which is favorite web browser of most of Windows users 😉you may experienced this. Specially actions inside looped actions, you will find its not possible to delete those actions. Solution: Knowing that there is some UI fixes for Edge, Chrome, Firefox or other browsers.  Just open with Internet Explorer where you will be able to delete actions as you wish.
