Button in SharePoint list to launch Flow workflow

SharePoint Designer allow the creation of a button in the Ribbon that launches a workflow for a selected item.

 

How can I recreate this for a workflow that I created using Flow?

 

Thanks in advance! Smiley Happy

Hi KasiP,

 

In SharePoint online, navigate to the target list, on the top of the list, click on Flow > See your flows, you could have a look at the flows related to the current list.

Re: Button in SharePoint list to launch Flow workflow

Hi MonaLi,

 

OK, but that just shows me the flows that I have defined, regardless of whether they belong to the list or not.

 

I am looking for a way to launch a workflow manually in a list/library using a button, like I was able to do with SharePoint Designer.

 

Any ideas there? Is manual launching of workflows supported at all in Flow?

 

Thanks! Smiley Happy

Hi,

 

A workaround would be a boolean field in your list. When you want to trigger the flow, set the boolean to TRUE. I Flow, launch the flow whenever an item is modified and add a condition if boolean = TRUE, else do nothing

Hi Matthieu,

 

That is indeed a workaround, but not quite the solution I was looking for.

 

Maybe Microsoft will still add this functionality in Flow.

Hi @KasiaP,

 

The functionality to trigger specific flows from a Sharepoint list item is indeed on the roadmap. Stay tuned!
