I may be thinking about this all wrong. How should I approach this?
6. This triggers next step in flow. ?? not sure where this is going
Now back in powerapps you will see a flow that can be added to button. When you add it will put something like runflow(.........
After the '(' you will note in the help text it shows all teh variables you now need to complete to do this task. It will include the email vaiable To, suubject etc.
Note you do not need to be in PowerApps to create your flow. If you go direct to flow and add new, type PowerApps and it wil provide you with teh powerapps as a trigger. When the flow is created you will see it will be added to the list of Flows in PowerApps based on you as the creator
leyburn19, thank you for the reply. It provided me a lot to think about. I'm now looking at using a stored procedure to manage the flow. This way I can centralize the flow and perform all checks. One thing I glossed over was many tasks in flow need to use business days. So if it is Saturday and it takes 3 business days the item is due Thursday. I also need to skip designated holidays. Most are legal requirements. I'm also looking at using SQL CLR. Having a C# programming environment provides additional flexibility.
I agree with @leyburn19's thought almost. For your first question, do you want to trigger a flow from an PowerApps app? If you want to trigger a flow from an PowerApps app, I think the PowerApps button trigger could achieve your needs.
More details about starting a flow from an PowerApps app, check the following article:
For your second question, Which task record do you want to create within your flow? Do you want to create a task with these data passed from your PowerApps app?
Please check and see if the following thread would help in your scenario:
For your third question, you could add a "Send an email" action of Outlook connector to send an email within your flow.
For your forth and fifth question, do you want the user to mark the task as completed manually? Do you want to update appropriate trade checkbox within your PowerApps app?
