Run flow from SharePoint online context menu

Hello all,


I´m looking for some option to reuse one approval flow on newly created document libraries on SharePoint online.

The scenario is that:

1) There are being created separate document libraries for each project.

2) There is need to apply approval flow for documents that will be stored there. Approval based on codebook.

3) Flow trigerring should be manual for specific documents not all in such library.

4) There should be tracked status of approval for each item (column) - this is not problem.


The biggest problem is to create/copy Flow that was created between document libraries somehow easily. There is need to reset all configurations for each newly created library.

I was looking for some option to parse this information from HTTP request trigger output as this information is stored there and post it to Get file properties as approvers are stored in codebook based on specific column for such file.

Is there any possible way to do it?

I'd like to be able to get information for next step Get Item like this:



There is itemURL, where is stored path to site and list item (library), I'd like to post this to Get Item action:




So after this I'm able to dynamically fill Site Address, List Name and Id of Item. And not need to fill this each time I use such flow for another document library. To work with library columns.



Hi @v-xida-msft,

I found out that there has been released new functionality to run Flow on selected intem in Sharepoint online document library. I'd like to ask you if there is chance to somehow use this flow not only for one Document Library in Sharepoint online, but to any library for example in one site?

There is need to specify Site Address and List Name, so it is bounded to only one list, so this is limitting it...
