Start a flow from a link or button

Dear all

I have an issue...

All is working fine... but the problem is the trigger that sometimes take till 3 minutes to update table

The idea is:

Can i insert a button in the navigation bar or somewhere that force the flow to run?

Thanks

Hi @dibia ,

 

Have you had an opportunity to apply @Pstork1 's recommendation to adapt your Flow?

I was wondering that where the navigation bar you mentioned?

Please provide more details so that we could give a suitable workaround or further suggestions.

The timing is all dependent on the trigger involved and your license level.  Some trigger's use WEbHooks in Azure.  Those will trigger automatically.  But a lot of triggers (especially triggers against third party applications like SQL) use a polling method.  For polling the system periodically checks to see if a trigger has fired.  The cycel time on that check varies from license level to license level.  For a standard O365 Flow license its every 5 minutes and goes down from there to a P2 license at only 1 minute.  

 

Having said that.  Yes you can invoke a Flow using a link.  Take a look at this article.

Be aware that if you do that you are changing the trigger and will need some alternate way to get information that might be provided by the trigger, like which table was updated.
