Embedded Flow Buttons for SharePoint

The Flow mobile app (iOS/Android) buttons are fantastic! I'd love to have the ability to embed a mobile-style Flow button in a SharePoint page as a webpart or even using embed code.

Updating the status per the below comments - this is about web pages not lists.

This is much much needed on Modern web pages!

This would be very useful on modern pages.

 

Ideally it would be great if it had the option to change the format/color/image of the button as well. But replicating the mobile button would be a good start

Upvoting. Seems crazy that there is functionality that only exists in mobile, please give me a button I can hit on a PC!

So are we going to be able to insert the flow trigger button into the body of an email?

It's crazy that this is not available yet for the web part. We need buttons to trigger flows on the web, not only for mobile.

Has there been any recent development on this?  I agree having the flow button as a web part to include in a site page is needed.  I am not needing the list portion at all.

Also the buttons do not work if you are displaying the list in a modern site page.  We need a way to trigger flows from a page!

Hi again!


For now I made a flow that runs from a 200px x 100px powerapps button with just the button, and I embedded it in the sharepoint page. For now it serves me well although it is not ideal.

 

SP Page -> PowerApps with only a button -> Run Flow without params

 

Details to create a button in https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powerapps/maker/canvas-apps/using-logic-flows

Hi,

 

Try out the interim solution.

 

1. Use 'Button' webpart and link it to the flow link as shown below.

https://us.flow.microsoft.com/manage/environments/{EnvironmentName}/flows/{flowID}/run

 

2. Add "Run only users" in the flow to let others run the flow but not edit in any way.
