How can we allow user to input data (via dialog) and call power automate flow via custom ribbon button

Hi,

 

I knew that we can trigger Flow through custom ribbon button using 'Http request is received' trigger but I would like to take some input data from user before I trigger and run the Flow via custom button, Is there any option/possibility to achieve this?

 

Also, I am aware that we can use 'Common Data Service - When a record is selected' trigger where we can add input parameters of different types but then I would like to call this flow from CRM custom button(Since it is not a HTTP trigger). Is it possible in any way to call this flow since it is not a HTTP request?

 

Please suggest how we can able to show dialog to user to enter the required data before user trigger the Flow from CRM custom button.

 

Many thanks in advance.

Hi,

 

I have achieved the above given requirement as below, if it helps someone

 

I have created a HTML web resource to receive inputs and used the modal JavaScript method to open the dialog on the form on click of button. After retrieving the values from the input fields of the dialog given by user I am passing them to Flow and triggering the flow. 

 

Thanks.

Is there a reason you didn't want to use an instant cloud flow with inputs?
