"PowerApps (V2)" new trigger ?

I just noticed that, when creating a new flow to be triggered from a PowerApp, I have available two triggers:
* PowerApps

* PowerApps (V2)


Am I wrong ? Or this "PowerApps (V2)" is something new since recently ?


If I click on the small information icon besides the trigger it mentions: "Trigger the flow from PowerApps, perform some other work of your choosing, and then return a response back to PowerApps."


... that looks equivalent to the information that appears for the existing trigger ("Use a button or link in PowerApps to trigger an action in this flow.").


I am just curios where to find information about the V2 trigger.





Hello @vllanso 

Yes, this is the newer version of the PowerApps trigger. Currently I could not find public information for this new version of the trigger but I will circle back internally and reply on this same thread once I have more concrete information.

The new V2 trigger allows you to stipulate the parameters that will be passed to the flow from your PowerApp.  This is a huge improvement on the 'Ask in PowerApps' feature in V1.  The next best thing is that you can say whether a parameter is optional or not, meaning you don't have to send through empty data if it's not required.  That's all I've found so far, but loving the improvements 🙂

Hello HadynM,


thanks for your update, and I just show a few days ago this short video from Reza Dorrani that expliains in a minute these new features of V2 trigger.


Regards, Victor.
