Hi @markw11,


Could you please share a screenshot of your issue?

Couldn't you click Flow button within Microsoft Flow app of your Android phone?

Further, Where do you click the Flow button? Within Microsoft Flow app or Android Flow widget?


I have made a test on my side and don't have the issue that you mentioned. Please check if the version of your Microsoft Flow app in your Android phone is latest version, if not, please update your Microsoft Flow app to latest version firstly and then try the Flow button again.


In addition, restart your Android phone or restart your Microsoft Flow app to check if the issue still exists. Also please check if the Network in your Android phone is in good condition.


Best regards,

I have precisely the same problem. Latest version of app on Android 7.0. Phone and app re-stared.

I have a Flow triggered by a button that asks for a numeric ID and two text inputs, then it calls an API. This works perfectly when intitiated from within the browser within the Edit Flow > Test Now scenario but generates the "Can't run button. There was a problem triggering this button flow. Please try again later" error message within the Flow mobile app. Within the same mobile app session I can re-run existing runs of the same Flow without problem.

I was working through some Microsoft online learning ( and created a button as instructed. Got a message when trying to run it, "Can't run button, There was a problem triggering this button flow. Please try later." I am actually pretty familiar with Power Automate, and there are no errors in the workflow logic.


Please advise of the solution to this issue, thanks.
