Get notified when a flow is completed in a canvas app

Is there a way to be notified in a canvas app when a flow has completed?

 

I have a flow that gets triggered on insert of a record into a table Dataverse (Note: Not triggered within the canvas app). This flow takes 2-3 minutes to complete, so I want to advise the user in the canvas app when it's completed so they can then do their next action within canvas.

 

Is this possible?

Thanks, I will look into this option. The other alternative is the flow runs on average the same amount of time so I could just show a message after that period. Not ideal but could work for what I need as this flow creates the same datasets each time.

Hi,

 

You could put this as a last step in your flow 🙂

There is also Powerapps Notification, which you can use to send notification to just mobile powerapps app(Not working on browser)

Thanks for your response.

This is not suited in my context as the user logged into the app needs to know when the flow has finished. So, a notification or label getting updated within the canvas app would be ideal for this situation.

Use "Powerapps Notification" and push parameter

Then update the app context based on parameter. 

 

Hope that help you.

Hi thanks again, but the canvas app does not run on a mobile it runs on a desktop website.

Hi @bfausti ,

The easiest way would be to send the user's email to a field in the target table and email the user at the end of the Flow. I know it is not in the app, but you cannot "talk" to an app by external means. As an alternative you might think of setting up a timer and running it every minute looking for something unique that the Flow changes, then alerting the user when this happens.

You may use flowsessions table to update and read flow status.
