Manually starting a flow from a SharePoint page

Hi all,

 

I have a list of data in SharePoint Online which is manually updated on a regular basis and once a batch of updates is completed, the user needs to "press a button" to then send that data onto a 3rd Party (via SFTP).

 

Now, I know what I need to do to actually export the data from SharePoint and push it out, then only problem i have is how I can provide a very simple method for the user to actually initiate the process.

 

All the SharePoint connectors/triggers work on the principle of something happening to an individual list item... add, update, delete etc... however that does not work because the process needs to send EVERYTHING each time..

 

I've though about using the "HTTP Request" trigger and adding a button, but that requires a PREMIUM licence which the user base does not have.

 

Any ideas please.

Hi @BO55VXR ,

 

You could take a try with the "For a selected item" trigger of sharepoint connector, and then you could trigger the flow in the sharepoint.

 

Best regards,
