Text input window when starting a flow from a list item

I have an approval flow for a document library where I can select an item, go the the "flow dropdown" and initiate the flow from there. I have added a textbox for the user to fill which pops out on the right where you start the flow. The content is added to the request email, illustrating why the approval is necessary.


All runs fine. For the user to have a better experience still, i would love to be able to make this text-input a bit larger, so that the text entry is easier. They tend to elaborate.


I do not see any way of doing that but hey, the combined knowledge out there is the benchmark. So if you have any ideas, I appreciate your comments.

Hi @RaoulDobal,


Which trigger are you using? Are you using SharePoint trigger For a selected item?


It seems that you are using the Text input in the trigger, and you want to Text input a bit larger.


If you want a larger text input, please post your request on Flow Ideas Forum:
