Pipelines Sharepoint

  • 1.  Pipelines Sharepoint

    I have been playing around with pipelines and now the sharepoint pipeline has been released.  Does anyone know how to create a pipeline to take a file attachment from QuickBase to a folder in SharePoint?  I can't seem to get it to work and this would really help our procurement process if it was possible.

    The SharePoint channel for Pipelines does not allow you to move files from one system to another. The channel is designed to allow you to integrate data from Quick Base and other 3rd party systems with information in SharePoint Lists. A SharePoint List is simply a table of data - like an excel spreadsheet or Quick Base table - with rows (Items) and columns (metadata) that is stored in SharePoint. You can use the SharePoint channel for Pipelines to trigger basic actions on Items in a List (create, update or delete), or to update data in another system when an Item is added/updated/deleted. Since SharePoint document repositories are also considered Lists, you can use the channel to trigger actions involving the metadata for these Items, but you cannot edit the contents of a file (i.e. edit a word document or spreadsheet), or move files from one system to another.

    It seems like this functionality would be valuable to you, so please consider posting your feedback in our UserVoice forum!
