Multiple Form as Trigger in Flow

Is it possible to use 3 different forms as trigger in MS Power Automate?

If no, can you please give me any idea on how to do it?

 

I have tried to read this thread below but had no idea how to do the http action.

@JeffGimo , currently you cant have multiple triggers on the same flow, so the thread that you have referred in your post is one of the correct approach, there are two approaches as listed below:

 

1. Create flows as part of one solution, so that you have a main flow which has all the common logic and three flows which have triggers of 3 different forms, then you can call the common flow from 3 different flows using Child flow action

 

2. If you dont want to create flows as part of solution, then you can create 3 flows for 3 different form triggers and one flow which has common logic, this common logic flow will use http trigger and the 3 different flows will call the common flow using http action, you can refer to this blog on how to do it https://www.annajhaveri.com/power-automate/power-automate-reusable-logic-across-flows/

Hi,

 

Check https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Building-Flows/Building-Multiple-Triggers-for-Exact-Same-Flow-Ac... . It uses a list to store the data of the multiple triggers, and uses it in the main flow.

It does not use HTTP(not sure if HTTP is premium though)
