Flow - iPhone - Widget - Text Input - FAILURE

I have a "button flow" where when you press it it asks you to input some text (It asks you to input your "location"). This "Flow Button" works perfectly fine from if I press it from within the "Flow" app. If I press this button in the Flow IOS app it prompts me to enter my "location" and after I do so the flow runs successfully. 


Here is the problem: If I navigate to my "Flow Widget" area on my iPhone (swipe "right" from the main screen) and then press this same button it just RUNS without PROMPTING ME TO ENTER MY LOCATION.

Re: Flow - iPhone - Widget - Text Input - FAILURE

Hi @CP153319,


The issue could be reproduced on my side.

1.Create a flow with a Button trigger, it will ask user to enter Text input.

2.Run the flow on iPhone mobile app, it works fine. it requires the inputs when user press the button.

3.Press the button on iPhone Widget screen, the flow runs without asking user enter any Text input.

We have reported this issue and if there are any updates, I will post back.


Best Regards,

@v-bacao-msft - You should also follow up with the lead on this project to determine how this "Flow/Widget" thing was released when it doesn't work.
