Connect to shared onedrive folder via link

Hey, I'm trying to connect to a folder on the onedrive for business platform that someone shares with me but it doesn't seem to work.

When I connecting via a link to my OneDrive, I can't see shared folders.

 

Does anyone know how to solve my problem?1111111111.jpg222222222.jpg

Okay I got it :D. You need to enter advanced options and give the other person full control status so that he will also be the owner of the file

I connect with the connector you showed. The function is just like that, there is no SharePoint.Folder function

Sorry, you're right, I was being thick as usual 🙄

When you connect to the link as per your example, what steps have been generated in the APPLIED STEPS section on the right of PQ?

Connecting using the Folder Connector should basically create steps that 'drill down' from the URL, through the folder, to the file. You should be able to select different steps, and/or delete later steps, to view back up the hierarchy to the higher levels.

I know I can just select a folder as connectr but I need to connect via a link to have current data and not set the gateway 🙄

When I try to connect to the onedrive of the person who shares the folder with me, I can't see anything

By connecting to my link, I can see the folders I have created, but I cannot see the folders shared with me

Hi @Mateusz_Płonka ,

 

You're using the SharePoint.Files connector in your example.

If you want to connect to a folder, you should use the SharePoint.Folder connector:
