Emulate a button flow in Teams

I have a very simple flow from a standard instant template.  When run, it blocks out your calendar for one hour with a set subject of 'busy'.  On your mobile, you can trigger this from the 'Buttons' provided.  However, I would like users to be able to trigger this from elsewhere with one click.  For example in Teams, I know I can add in flow, but then I get a list of all the flows shared with that team.  I am after a nice UI experience where there is a link or button on the teams page that the user clicks and it starts the flow.  Is this possible?

Thanks in advance and all that  🙂

Re: Emulate a button flow in Teams

Hi @Jax. You could have a Power App which you can use to build you interface, with a button which will trigger a flow using the Power Apps trigger. You can then put that Power App into Teams, either on the left rail by uploading the app manifest, or by adding it as a tab in a particular team.

Re: Emulate a button flow in Teams

Hmm, good call @MattWeston365, I will try that .  That would make it look more 'embedded'.  Thanks!  I'd like to see the 'button' options for mobile devices in Teams 🙂  Everyone loves a button to press...
