Triggering flow using a hyperlink in an email

Hey everyone


I'm wanting to initiate an HTML table conversion to excel but I'm stuck on the first step. This table is sent via a hyperlink in an email. Is there a flow to automate the link being opened to access the content for rest of the steps to begin? Thanks for any assistance.

Hi @Peekay unfortunately there are no actions to fire a flow based on something being opened by the user. The closest thing I can think of in my head is that you have something in between. E.g. your link directs to a single Power App screen, which when loaded will fire the required flow and will also then Launch the document containing the table.

Did my reply help? Please give it a thumbs up.

Thanks Matt. I've actually managed to get the table sent in CSV now from the provider but it's still a hyperlink in an email which is the sticking point for any automation to occur it seems.
