Updated Feature: Get files and items from folders and subfolders

FROM MICROSOFT CORPORATION

Users can create flows that run on folders and target specific files in the folder using the “Get Files (property only)” action in Power Automate.

Similarly, users can create flows that run on folders and target specific list items in the folder using the “Get items” action in Power Automate.When this will happen

We’ll be gradually rolling this out to Targeted Release customers from late March to early April. We will update the message when we roll this out to standard release customers.

This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 62856.How this will affect your organization

Power Automate users will see the “Get items” and “Get files (properties only)” actions be updated to include two new fields: “Limit Entries to Folder” and “Include Nested Items”. If a folder is specified, then the action will only return the entries located inside of that folder. If “Include Nested Items” is set to true, entries located inside of subfolders will also be returned; otherwise, they will be excluded.

By leveraging this new functionality, users can create instant flows and run them on items nested within folders in lists and libraries. When users select a folder, they will see their instant flows appear under the Automate command bar button.

Existing flows that include “Get items” or “Get files (properties only)” will continue to work like before if the two new fields are left unchanged.
