How to pass name of flow as a variable to the "Turn on Flow" action

I have several flows that I want to be able to turn on/off, depending on input from another flow. I need to be able to pass the specific flow name as a variable to the turn flow on (or off) action. Even using an expression, I get an an error: "The provided flow name 'Other Flow 1' contains invalid characters."

 

And clues?

Hi @wanjos :

If you need to input the custom value ,you should input the Flow id instead of the flow name.

BTW,to get the Flow Id, in edit mode, you could get it from the highlighted part:

You're a star, worked a treat! I've used forms and list IDs, yet never occurred to me it would be an ID and not the name.

 

Thanks
