make Location (GPS) variables avaiable in other then button actions

I love the button where i can track my location to Excel.

But it would be great if i could use the location variables in other/time triggered actions.

Then i could do the same as thebutton, but time triggered and not a manual action.

Status: Under Review

You're asknig for an action to retreive the user's location offline. We can consider this in the future.

Besides all the professional possibilities, I would love to use flow to be my personal gps tracker whenever i want that: running, taking pictures sdding coordinates to the pictures in lightroom, ...

Make the output of the button available so that it can be used with other triggers especially the scheduler

There are three use cases that would be very helpful.

 

1. Flow is triggered when a user ENTERS an area (defined by a circle around a point  with a certain radius). The setup should ask for the lat and lon of the point and the radius of the circle. When the flow is triggered, the lat and lon of the location becomes a variable that can be used in other steps. This would allow other actions to be triggered when a user enters a location. For instance, when a user enters an office building, their location, time, date etc. are logged in Excel.

 

2. Flow is triggered when a user LEAVES an area (defined by a circle around a point  with a certain radius). The setup should ask for the lat and lon of the point and the radius of the circle. When the flow is triggered, the lat and lon of the location becomes a variable that can be used in other steps. This would allow other actions to be triggered when a user leaves a location. For instance, when a user leaves an office building, their location, time, date etc. are logged in Excel.

 

3. Flow is triggered when a user STARTS a Flow with a button and initates a feature that allows Flow to track the starting point, and each stopping point of a curtain duration - Varible 1 (input as part of button press data) and continues until 1) a STOP button is pressed, or 2) the stopping duration is more than Variable 2 (also part of the initial input). This would allow tracking of milage etc.
