Triggering One Flow from Another Flow

I've got a flow built out of nested condition actions, each condition is the "no" of the previous one. At the end of this flow, in the "if no" of the final condition, I'd like to build something that will then trigger a second, separate flow to run. How do I need to set up the end of this flow and the trigger for the other flow to make this work?

Hi @ZachJayy 

 

You need to design your flow as parent/child flows.

 

Please have a look at the below links.

Good morning @abm 

 

Suppose that I don't have premium or Power Apps? I am working inside of an enterprise environment without this license or the permissions to create environments/databases. 

 

Is there another way to make this happen?

Hi @ZachJayy 

 

Thanks for your quick reply. Yes you need premium license for using http connectors.

 

Alternate way is you probably need to create an additional field something like Yes/No so that you can update this field under your final condition. You could utilise the Yes update as the trigger for your next flow. Then make sure set the flag back to No for future runs. Not the ideal solution but this could work for you without using HTTP request invoking child flows.

 

Thanks

I didn't want to create my own topic, but I'm doing exactly as you stated. Flow #1 creates a record in Power Apps entity and checks a box. Flow #2 looks to see if that checkbox is marked True, and goes out and retrieves some additional data. The second flow does NOT fire (not sure why) from the execution of the first flow, but when I check the box manually from the UI, it runs fine.... anyone know if this is by design?

Hi @klemetsrud 

 

It would be difficult to analyse without seeing a screenshot of your flow? What's your trigger? Is that SharePoint or Dataverse (CDS) or SQL? I would say please create a new thread and tag me. I will have a look.

 

Thanks
