There are numerous blogs which talks about different ways to call flow from another flow. You can create child flows or you can create flow to accept HTTP request to call another flow.

 

Here are few blog references:

https://www.serverless360.com/blog/using-run-child-flow-action-to-call-nested-flows

https://flow.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/build-nested-flows/

https://o365tech8.com/how-to-call-a-flow-from-another-microsoft-flow/

 

Before calling the child flow or another flow, you can have a Condition action to check your desired value. Based on the value, you can call other flows and pass parameters as well.

 

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Hi, @rsaikrishna 

 

Thank you for these. I was hoping for a action to call a flow with XYZ inputs and receive Dynamic outputs.

I will need to have a rethink, HTTP may work ok in the big world, but on enclosed locked down system it will be problematic.

 

Many thanks again!
