For a selected item action



I am trying to use the "For a selected item action" (SharePoint). As i understand it it should add a new context menu to the SharePoint list so that the users can manually start the flow for the selected item. Like this Image



My flow definition (simple test flow). Looks like this:



I dont get any context menu in the flow section of the list. Preview features are enabled on the tenant for SharePoint.


Does anyone have a clue why its not working? Or have i misunderstood something?

@Anonymous Not sure how to make this "For a selected item" trigger get executed either...


But if you are looking for a way to manually execute a flow taking a SP item selected as input, you can follow the steps explained here


Plase note the post I am referring to is applying to Document Libraries, but if you open a SP List, select one of the items, choose "Create flow", you will find a very useful template whose trigger grabs item related info, as you can see in the following screenshot. So you keep the trigger and rebuild the rest of the flow according to your needs.


Hope this helps
