Create multiple input types for buttons

It would be great to have multiple input types for Flow buttons:

 

  • Text (you already have this)
  • Radio buttons
  • Checkboxes
  • Email
  • Date (date picker?)
  • Number
  • Dropdowns
  • Managed metadata (from SharePoint)
  • etcetera

That would make it a lot more useful and easy to use for end users! Smiley Happy

It would be great to be able to have more than 5 inputs for buttons. Could you guys please increase this number? I think max 10 would be enough in most cases.

Level: Powered On

I agree.  I would love to be able to use a "Yes/No" field. 

Level: Power Up

 Drop down list would be helpful, if possible to get the list from a text file or a SharePoint list.

 

Plus if we can manipulate the maximum no. of characters allowed for the text box.

As a workaround you can use Powerapps to implement such forms, you can then invoke the Flow from there, the main limitation I see is that in the context of Powerapps you cannot get the Flow result as explained here

In current Buttons implementation I also miss some way to indicate if an input field is/is not mandatory.
