Auto generate PDF after SubmitForm

Hi All,

 

So I've successfully created a generate PDF button/flow to save items to a document library , but is there a way to automatically run the flow AFTER you submit a form or after a approval process? From what I've been googling so far it seems like the only way to trigger it is through a manual button click

 

Thank s

The primary issue I see trying to turn this into an automated trigger is finding a way to get the values for the three parameters that you are passing into the flow. You don't get an option to ask the user for information when the flow starts automatically.  But if you can find a way to supply those as values, perhaps by adding them as fields in the metadata of the SharePoint item, then the rest should be relatively easy.

I'm not sure what the specific steps are that you are using, but you should be able to do something similar using one of the automated triggers, like when an item is created.  Can you post a copy of your manual flow and I'll help you reconfigure for an automated one.
