Multiple Triggers For The Same Flow

Saw this posed as a question so figured I would throw it in the ideas. It would be very useful to have multiple triggers set off the same flow, especially if they are similar triggers. For example, right now if I have a BI alert for two different tiles that are both cards that must email the same people, I need to create two flows. It would greatly reduce the amount of Flows that need to be managed if either of the alerts could set off the same flow. Also, if they are similar enough as the same BI cards it would be nice if they could perform a merged action instead of two seperate ones. Example being if two alerts are set off in BI for tiles, and those tiles need to be emailed to the same people, Flow would send one email to the list containing info about both of the alerts. Thanks!

Status: Under Review

Today this can be accomplished by using multiple flows pointing at the same business logic via an HTTP trigger. So for example:

 

Flow 1 with Trigger 1 and HTTP action

Flow 2 with Trigger 2 and HTTP action

Flow 3 with Trigger 3 and HTTP action

Flow 4 with HTTP trigger and your actions

 

This requires n+1 flows (where n is the number of triggers) but enables you to accomplish the scenario. Thanks!

I'd like to trigger my flow for a selected item in a sharepoint list and when a new task is created, to update the new task based on the list item inforamtion. Having more than one trigger would make my life easier to have it accomplished. If anyone has an idea to wrokaround it I'd very much appreciate it.

Please add this.   We should have the option to automatically trigger a flow such as when a new item is created or trigger it manually for SharePoint.

 

All other workflow products have this option for SharePoint
