Sharing Power Automate Desktop Flows

I'm currently piloting Power Automate Desktop for my company and while messing around with the capabilities.


There are two main questions I have regarding the sharing capabilities for Power Automate Desktop:

1. Can I share a desktop flow with a group or distribution list? - Cloud flows support this functionality, but with desktop flows it appears users can only be shared with one user at a time. I have tried searching for some of the same user groups that I can share my cloud flows with and they do not work with my desktop automation

2. Can a premium Power Automate user share a desktop flow with a non-premium user? - I did a very basic test on my end, as I'm currently using the 90-day free trial. I attempted to share a desktop flow with a peer as a "user" but he does not see the flow show up in his tools at all. 


I attempted to search through the Power Automate documentation, but just didn't see anything that answered these very specific questions. Thanks!

Isn't Solutions also limited to only premium users? 


Does that mean that there is no feasible way to share a desktop automation with a user that has a non-premium license? 

You could copy the content from %LocalAppData%\Microsoft\Power Automate Desktop\Console\Workspace\YourFlowGUID


Try sharing through the web version.
