For a selected item trigger not working on Announcements list

I have created a flow with "For a selected item" trigger on announcements list template. but when i try to run flow after selecting item from list nothing happens, no error message as well. For normal lists same flow is working as expected and i am able to run the flow. Why its not working with announcements list ? can anybody help me on this. Thanks in advance.

Hi @Manoj_Dhepe,


Could you please share a screenshot of your flow's configuration?

Do you create your flow from scratch with the "For a selected item" trigger as the trigger?


The issue is confirmed on my side, the created flow would not be shown up within Flow menu of SharePoint list (The created flow would show up within Flow menu of normal SharePoint list). I afraid that creating a flow from scratch with "For a selected item" trigger as the trigger is only supported for normal SharePoint list, if you would like this feature to be improved, please submit an idea to Flow Ideas Forum:


In addition, you could consider take a try to create the flow from SharePoint list with the following article:
