Execute "Manual Flow" from a Link

I would like to add a link on a SharePoint page to execute a "Manually Triggered" flow, similar to when a user navigates to https://us.flow.microsoft.com/manage/environments/XXXXXX/flows and clicking on the Play button of this particular flow. The flow does contain a number of input variables that the user would fill in before execution. 

 

Currently the only thing I can think of is: 

a) Directing the users to the Flow Overview page and they can run the flow from there

b) Creating a powerapp and changing the flow trigger to execute based on a powerapp button. 

c) Creating a SP List that would capture the workflow inputs and trigger a flow on new item creation. 

 

Is there an easier way?

Hi there, 

 

If you go to the flow you want to run from the page, and go to its overview page - copy that URL - and replace the "details" at the end with "run" - you can add that URL to a button. 

Then you get an input page when the user clicks that looks like this:

A little bit friendlier than sending them just to the Overview page, and without needing to re-add all the inputs to a PowerApp or form or what-have-you.

 

Cheers,
