I would like an empty folder to be created every morning at 5 am on my Sharepoint online site. I have been working in flows and it only seems that there is only the capability to create a file at a scheduled time. Does anyone have any ideas as to how I might go about doing this??

Thanks!

Hi @BryceKauffman , you've raised the same question in several different posts recently. Have you tried the solution I gave you at https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/SharePoint/How-do-you-Create-Blank-Folders-Automaticlly-using... which has been creating a blank folder for me every day at 5am without fail since I posted the solution?
