Actually, this is to create a file folder in Teams that will move files to another (private) location whenever a new file is dropped in there. Why would you want to do that? You might want to get files in a semi-secure manner but then not have them live in a viewable location. Think, budgets from the CFO that others shouldn’t see.

Using Flow, create a new flow with the Sharepoint “When a file is created (properties only)” trigger. The Folder field needs to be populated with the file folder you’re watching.

Add an action for Sharepoint “Move file”. The File to Move field needs to be a dynamic action of “Identifier”. The Destination Site Address and Destination Folder may not be discoverable, so you’ll need to populate those with the correct target location.

One final note, I’m pretty sure the person adding the flow needs to be an Owner of the team, although I haven’t tested that.
