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.
Something like this (though more size/shape options would be welcome)...
I second this!
Context! Whatever approach is taken, there needs to be a way of injecting data into the flow trigger based on the screen context - whether that is the page itself, or something from another webpart - selected item in a list or gallery, etc.
I wrote a blog post on how to do this:
BUTTON IN SHAREPOINT LIST TO TRIGGER MICROSOFT FLOW

This is enabled today - check out @WonderLaura's great blog post to see how: https://wonderlaura.com/2018/07/18/button-in-sharepoint-list-to-trigger-microsoft-flow/
Hi Stephen, I don't think you're reading the feedback accurately - the request here is for a webpart that allows for a flow-triggering button. The link you have quoted here is to provide a button in a sharepoint list.
This is not the same thing - for example - Start a flow that has nothing to do with a sharepoint list, or a flow which can be used to add an item to a list. Last time I checked, the webpart that renders a sharepoint list into a page doesn't support custom rendered columns, so even the quoted solution here won't work from a sharepoint page.
Hope you will reconsider this feedback.
@Stephen - @BenHatton is correct; @WonderLaura's solution is great, but is not what we're looking for. Ben did a great job of clarifying the request, but please let me know if more is needed.
I tried to use the blog post to add a "sign up" button to a SharePoint list, but I cannot find a custom action flow with a selected item trigger for SharePoint. I'd like to embed buttons in pages as well.
I stick to BenHatton, I look for a solution to just create a button which start a flow. The button should be able get integrated into a modern page in sharepoint. I think this topic "Embedded Flow Buttons for SharePoint" was about this feature.
A button like this: Flow button for mobilehttps://docs.microsoft.com/de-de/flow/introduction-to-button-flowsSame like described under the link, but be able to integrate it in a modern page, start it from the modern page, and get a pop-up to enter the input optins for the button-trigger.
