Have a good day.

Hi Kierian, 


When you say, we can trigger power automate via CMD, can you please help me with the steps? How to do that?




Can you please provide on details on how to do this? Should we always rely on cloud to trigger the flows? There must be some way to trigger the flow on the same machine where power automate desktop is installed using the command line.

Hi @marklacdao 


There are many posts asking the same but there doesn't look to be a way as of now to trigger or even schedule a desktop flow without the cloud flow.

I think @kierian wanted to type you "can't" instead of you "cantrigger power automate via CMD.

Here you can upvote the idea for scheduling a desktop flow which also talks about command line and powershell.
