Trigger manual flow via Power App?

Is it possible to trigger a 'manual trigger' flow via a Power App? 

 

I am using this flow elsewhere so I cannot just change the trigger...  just wondering if I really need to create a duplicate version of the flow that can be triggered within an app, or if there is a way to trigger this. 🙂

@DanielaHo - Is this for a Canvas App or a Model-Driven App? If it's a Model-Driven app, you can use the "When a record is selected" trigger from the "Common Data Service" connector (not the "Common Data Service (current environment) connector).

 

So, if you have a specific record open, you can use the Flow button menu to select the flow to run for that specific record.

 

If it's a Canvas App, then I would reference this post: https://d365demystified.com/2020/08/25/call-http-request-from-a-canvas-power-app-using-flow-and-get-...

I don't believe there is a way. But you could have a single flow which is triggered by a HTTP Request and then use that to execute it from other flows.

Thanks both. It's a Canvas app... so I guess the answer is that I do need a second/different flow. 

Because even if I used the HTTP trigger (which is now Premium anyways) it would be a different flow than the one I want to trigger (with the manual trigger). Thank you 🙂
