Start a flow without confirmation

I recently confronted myself with view formatting and column formatting and was wondering how to trigger a "yes/no" field with a button. Seems like this doesn't work (correct me if I'm wrong), but I figured I can start a flow by clicking on a button.

 

Since my newly created flow is just changing the "trigger" column to either "yes" or "no", I don't want the user to have to manually click on "run flow" each time he's clicking on the button. Is this achievable?image.png

Hi @leemex,

 

I am afraid that it is not possible currently to enable/disable the Run flow button based on a column value. If you need this feature, please submit your idea on Flow Ideas Forum, I will suggest other customers who have the same request to vote your idea at here:

I dont want to run the flow when a specific column changed, but I'd like to run the flow when clicking on a button WITHOUT getting a confirmation which needs me to click again on "start flow".

Is this possible?
As I understand this confirmation only shows when the flow needs to gather information about the end user. Since I'm changing only a boolean field in the flow, I don't require any information from the user (I also tries running the flow as an admin)

Thanks for clarification. But I am afraid that starting a flow without confirmation is not possible. I would suggest you submit your request on the Flow Ideas Forum as well.

Oh really? I thought as long as no information from the end user is being requested in the flow it will work without confirmation. 

 

See here:

"If the Flow is configured to gather data from the end user before running, the Flow Launch Panel will be displayed after choosing the button. Otherwise, the Flow will just run."
