What's the difference between sending a copy of Power Automate Flow vs export a flow?



I created a flow for a partner business team and want to know if it's better to send a copy of the flow or export the flow?


What's the difference between the two ? Any difference from the recipient's perspective?


Thank you,

Please see this article.  The end result is the same, but the Send A Copy is a more user friendly way to send it to a colleague.  It is also a little more flexible.
