Powerapps flow button with dropdown option

Hi, 

 

Im building a flow to insert a row to a sharepoint list.

(checkIN\CheckOUT button to check who is in the building in case of emergency).

 

With a manually trigger in flow your can add an action to it, like a dropdown to choose a location for example.

Hi @Yvonzim 

 

Create the dropdown in Power Apps and connect to your SharePoint column using the Choices function in Power Apps.

Pass that value as a Text to flow from Power Apps.

In flow under dynamic content pick "Ask in Power Apps" to create the param that you can pass from Power Apps to flow.
