Adding a flow in PowerApp

I have created a simple flow PowerApps -> Send Email:


However, I can not find a way to activate it within PowerApps. I am following this Guided elarning tutorial: 

And they have it in ribbon under actions, however in my screen it is not there.

PowerApps from video:



My PowerApps:



How would you manually write the function to activate your flow? Thanks!

Hi MartynasJurkus,


What’s your PowerApps version?


I am using PowerApps version 2.0.630. On PowerApps studio for Windows, the button for “Flows” under Action can be used as expected.



While on PowerApps studio for Web, there is no button for “Flows” under Action.


So I guess that you are using Web studio, And currently, we are also not able to enter a function manually to active flow. If you have a desktop studio, please try to add flow in your app on desktop studio.


About adding flow in an app on Web studio and manually entering a function to active flow, I haven’t seen a related idea on PowerApps Ideas Forum, please consider to submit a new one at here, I will also collect and report it on my side.


Best regards,
Mabel Mao

Thanks Mabel for letting me know. Unfortunately, at my organization we are using Win 7 and PowerApps is not supported on this OS, I can only use the web studio. I guess that means I have no way of adding a flow to my App.
I’ll go ahead and write it in Idea forum.

@Anonymous, I was having the same issue with my organization. We only used Windows 7. I would highly recommend you set up,  if possible, a Virtual Machine for windows 10. I use Remote Desktop Connection, and even though it's a very laggy client, it allows me to use Flow (I recently set up an automatic email feature.) 


Note, I still use Web client for the majority of development.


Good luck
