Auto generating new post/page in the SharePoint site from the item of SharePoint List

Copper Contributor

Hi everyone,

 

I'm looking to create a page on SharePoint site that is generated based on the value of item from a SharePoint list.
I have created a list that has a column with the type of multiple lines of text and the specification of the type of the text is Enhanced rich text (Rich text with pictures, tables, and hyperlinks).

Does anyone have any ideas on how to generate page content from the values in this column?

Thank you

@arine1901 you can't do this with just SharePoint on its own, you will need to build a flow in Power Automate. There is a YouTube video showing the steps here.

 

If your list already has lots of items you could additionally add button in a single line of text column using JSON formatting to trigger the flow. The trigger in that case would need to be "For a selected item".

@arine1901 You can do it with PowerAutomate using the Send an HTTP request to SharePoint action and then using the SharePoint REST API to populate your content. 

There are a few steps to get it working. 

Good luck!

Thanks for your help @Rob_Elliott 

 

I have followed the steps and adjusted my column type like this
