Hi @Jordan998 ,

 

You could use the User() function to get information about the current user, and then you could pass the user data and the button's name from Power Apps to Flow.

 

1. Here is my Flow.

2. Here is my App.

First you need to add the Flow to your PowerApp.

Once added, you can go to your flow and select on the action Ask in PowerApps

From there, you can now send data from your powerapp to flow.
