Hi @Anonymous - The only way I can think is possible to achieve that is to have your checkbox connected to a backend datasource, say a SharePoint List and have your flow patch the value: 'true' into that field. Then in the app, connect your checkbox to that SharePoint field, so that your checkbox in the App mimics the true/false status in your data source.

 

Not sure exactly what your use case is, but hope this makes sense.

Hi @Anonymous,

Do you want to check the Checkbox once the flow is on?

 

Actually, if you want to validate if the flow is on or off, you could use the following formula:

MyFlow.Run()​

This will return true if the flow runs, otherwise return false. In a word, you could check the Checkbox based on the returned result.

 

Set the Default property of the Checkbox as below: 

MyFlow.Run()​

 

Best Regards,
Qi
