Issue creating a Flow within PowerApps

Hi,

 

I am having an issue trying to create a flow within PowerApps for a Canvas app I am trying to design. 

 

When I select Flows form the make.PowerApps.com site, I select create new flow. 

 

Then I select create from blank. 

 

I search for connectors and find the one I am looking for: "Common Data Services - When a record is created". However, I can't select it to assign the Environment, Entity or scope - which are my next steps. When I select the connector, nothing happens. 

 

Any help would be much appreciated.


Thanks,

 

Mick

Re: Issue creating a Flow within PowerApps

Flows that are initiated by PowerApps always use a PowerApps button trigger. You can go to the Flow designer if you want to make a Flow with a Common Data Services trigger. But that Flow will run independently from the PowerApp you are creating. Otherwise create the flow to trigger with a PowerApps button and then add a data source connection to CDS.

 

What are you trying to accomplish.  Please explain a bit more and we can help with the design.
