Can "For selected item" trigger be applied to multiple files at one time?

I am using the "for selected item" trigger in one of my flows. I am wondering if the flow can be configured, so that I can a select multiple files/items in a SharePoint list then run the flow.

 

Is this possible?

There is no "out of the box" method of  running a Flow on multiple items at once. 

 

Alternative solutions that you might investigate include inserting custom code on the page.  Also, you might investigate using PowerApps to create a customized view which allows you to select multiple items and calls a Flow to run against each selected item.   You might try posing this question in the PowerApps forum.

Unfortunately, Flows starting with a For a Selected Item trigger can only be run against a single item at a time.  You may notice that the Flow menu item goes away when multiple items are selected.

 

Sorry...
