Assign flow to button in Powerapps

Hello Flow Community!

 

I've created the Leave Request Application via PowerApps. I'd like to have it where when the manager approves the request, that it be published on a calendar on SharePoint.

 

This is my flow so far: https://imgur.com/a/isUBKsP

This is my PowerApps OnSelect formula for BtnManagerApprove: https://imgur.com/a/VzuaeWf

This is  the button I believe that should trigger the flow: https://imgur.com/a/t13wG8h

 

The formula for "OnSelect" needs to be changed to trigger the flow mentioned above.  Am I following the right steps? Can anyone help me create the correct formula?

 

Thanks!

Hi @Anonymous,

 

I would suggest you:

1.Create an app to create an item in sharepoint list.

2.Create a flow with trigger "When an item is created", the flow woul dbe triggered when an item is created in the sharepoint list.

3.Add an "Start an approval" action under the trigger for manager approval.

4.Add a Condition under the "Start an approval" action to check if the request is approved.

5.Inside the If yes branch of the Condition, add an "Create item' action to create the item on a calendar on SharePoint.

 

 

Best regards,

Alice

Hi @v-yuazh-msft

 

I'd like to use the PowerApps interface rather than just have people adding items to a sharepoint list. I understand how to create the flow you're mentioning, but my concern is having PowerApps as the trigger. Essentially I want users to use the PowerApps and have that action automatically create an item on the sharepoint calendar...
