Hi,

 

Is it possible to create a News Items in a SharePoint Modern site using Flow with data from a SharePoint Online list within the same site?

 

 

If yes, how?

 

Thank you

I don't believe creating Modern Site Pages/News is possible using native actions in Flow/Logic Apps. 

 

One possible (advanced) solution would be to:

  1. Trigger a Flow from a list item
  2. Get the item's properties
  3. Call an Azure Function that creates a modern page using the information from the list item: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/dev/solution-guidance/modern-experience-customizations-c...
  4. Publish the page as news
Mmm...let me disagree here. In Flow we can directly call SPO API so in theory we can do whatever we need inside the Flow

I want to do this as well.

 

What ever happened with this post?  Did you guys find a solution?

 

I did look up https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/dev/solution-guidance/modern-experience-customizations-c... and the C# code is there.

 

Not sure if Azure functions, graph, other API things, could be used to create this functionality?

 

Anyone have an idea or working solution?

Any news on this front? Can this be done? I am trying to take a RSS need from our public website and cross post a link to the news feed on out sharepoint site.
That would be cool! I'm also trying to do the same thing, but haven't yet found a way to automate this.
