Trigger Flow when BPF is finished

Hello Community!

 

Anyone knows how it would be possible to trigger a flow when a Business Process Flow in a Mode Driven App using Common Data Service is marked as "Finished"?

Re: Trigger Flow when BPF is finished

Hi @Softbear,

I tried it and it worked for me.  I used the Common Data Service Trigger to track against my Business Process Flow (Change Request Process) and limit it to running only when the status code changes. Then I evaluated the status code label to make sure it is set to Finished. Thanks for asking this question, it gave me an idea for another issue I was trying to solve.

 

I hope this helps you out!

Thats a good solution, thank you! @Piper @danmitchell36 

 

Acctually i solved it by setting a IF statement that checked for a completedon date. And if it exist = true else = False.
See attached 🙂 Guess both ways work but yours is more "correct"! 🙂

I believe you need the ability to trigger the Flow from another workflow. Unfortunately,


See this blog for how to do it: https://flow.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/build-nested-flows/

 

Please give kudos and mark as solution if this helps!

Thanks,
