Write Message before click Run

All,

 

I have a SharePoint library that stores folders for drawings. Users select a folder and choose a flow to run from the power automate dropdown list. Then on the flow pane that appears on the right edge, they press the "Run Flow"  button.

 

My questions :

 

1. Is there a way to have a "Message Box" that users type a message and then press the " Run Flow"?

2. I want to send the "message" to the approver in an approval action. Possible?

 

Any help with this is greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks

@cadone you can add input in the trigger "For a selected file", as shown in below screenshot

Then you can use this input approval action - details parameter

Thanks much. It did exactly that.

I now can write a message before running. I wish this was optional. It's currently behaving as a "required field".

Is there a way to proceed with out a writing a message.

 

The user will write a message only when they want to, other wise I want to allow the user to simply click on the "run" button.

@cadone  there is option to make field optional, see screenshot below:
