Location services must be enabled to run this flow.

I'm testing a flow I have created the when a button is pushed, it will get items from one SharePoint list, look to see if a string contains specific text and if so, create an item in another SharePoint list.  The flow checker doesn't return any errors but when I run the flow I get the message " This flow doesn't need additional input to run  .... Location services must be enabled to run this flow.  I am not gathering any location data from the flow.  How do i resolve this error?

Button flows gather a lot of information when they are triggered.  One of which is location.

You might want to review this document with the information that is gathered.


I don't believe it can be avoided.  Not sure on that one if anyone else can chime in on it.

I'm having the same issue. I looked at Windows 10 setting and the location is in fact turned on (See Image) 

Not applicable

My computer is WIN10 


In my teams channel , I put a flow click button in the flow ,But when I click it ,it will show "Location services must be enabled to run this flow" then this flow will not execute 


How can I solve this ??

Same problem here... no answer so far...

I just deleted the trigger and recreated it and it worked fine.  I think I selected "city" in the original trigger, which comes from some out-of-the-box location property and maybe that's why it was demanding the location services.  Once I recreated without using "city" it was fine.

Hi! I just went through the same issue, for something as basic as getting the ID of a Planner... can't understand in which way location should be needed for that. I tried with a different browser and the pop-up requesting access appeared again, so I answered yes to enable location access and it worked. Probably the configuration will not be related to windows but to the browser.
