Triggering a flow from SharePoint

Hi

I would really help in understanding how to trigger an instant flow from a SharePoint team site. I would ideally like to have a button on the team site that executes a simple to send an email and Teams message. I have built the flow but can't see how I can put a button or link into SharePoint to trigger it. Is it possible?

Go to your share point list. You will see the option on top of Automate you can create a Flow

Based on your trigger you will see the option to run flow. So for example in my case i used the trigger When an Item is selected.

Thanks Rahber

 

I want to trigger from a button rather than a list though. I'm not using a list in the context of this problem. Standard buttons only take a URL as an argument I know but was hoping there was another method. 

How about using the trigger "When an HTTP request is received" This will give you a URL. You can call that URL from your share point by using ajax or just as it is. This will trigger the flow for you
