I've been trying to set up a Team Flow in microsoft teams but I'm having no luck - my process is:
I reload the tab and I'm taken back to the "Create your first flow" page, reloading or navigating back to the page has the same result, I can never see the saved flow from within Teams
If I check flows.microsoft.com the flow exists under my team flows tab. Checking the share permissions reveals that the Teams sharepoint group is an owner. Nobody in else in the team can see it in theirs though. It's worth noting that this works for some Teams and not for others.
Hi @LOldfield ,
You need to install Flow into the specified Team.
Please check the following image:
I'd tried that before as well to no avail, I believe it's actually the same install process as just adding it through the tab menu.
It yields the same result, the beginning screen with no associated flows.
Yes I've tried several several different ways. THEY DON'T SHOW UP, PERIOD!
I'm in the Team / Flow tab. Miraculously there's lots of templates. Cool, create and go back to list. "You have no flows"???? Actually I do, they're all listed in Flow.
So essentially. Teams sucks? That's my experience. thus far. If you're in the tab and create a flow, intuition dictates it should be successful . However, ONCE AGAIN, we're talking Microsoft, so there you go.
Ill uninstall this ridiculous unintuitively run app.
You know it's bad when you come back to the issue a year later and the only search result is your own forum post.
Is there seriously not a solution for this yet? We need to centralise these and get them out of individual user profiles.
I've figured it out folks, at least this worked for me.
You have to be a Member of the Team, just being Owner Is not enough.
Being Owner but not Member has caused issues with other stuff in Teams in the past, because I'm guessing that in some cases on the backend Microsoft only checks if you are a Member, but doesn't check if you are an Owner.
Through the MS365 Admin Centre I gave myself both Owner and Member status of a Team, and after a few hours, the Flows in the Team appeared when they previously did not.
This solution worked for me, but this is still a really stupid bug that MS needs to fix. Owner means OWNER. An Owner should have access to EVERYTHING in a Team.
I think some change has been made here, as I was able to do this but only by installing the Power Automate tab into the "General" channel. Doing it outside of this didn't work. Still crappy and confusing as I'd rather these flows were contained in their own channel & tabs with documentation but better than nothing I suppose?
Playing around in my tenant this evening...
1. As an Owner or Member
2. In General or any other public channel
3. Not in private channels (the flow list looks to continue to try to refresh, but everything else is there)
I have similar problem. I was trying to "move" the power automate tab from the General channel to a private channel.
When I am in a "normal" mode, all flows are refreshing infinite but when I popped out the tab window they appeared.
Now I will delete the power automate tab in the general channel to see what will happen.
