Run Flow on Multiple List Items in SharePoint Online List

The ability to select one list item and manually run a flow is good, but It would be great to be able to select multiple list items and perform the same action, where a new run would start for each Selected Item AND/OR the "For a selected item" trigger would have the option to be able to handle multiple list items in the same way that the "Get Items" action works. So either the option to run a flow multuple times, or one flow, but be aware that there were multiple items selected.


Example: I want to mark a bunch of list items as 'Complete' then send only one notification with a summary of all the list items that were marked as Complete.

+1. This could include an option on the "For a selected item" called "allow multiple items" which would trigger an "apply to each" to appear below it when chosen.

It would be awesome, specially when you have to do multiple documents approval, you could select the items then run that Flow.

+1  Was very excited to set up Flows in our lists & libraries until I realized we could only run one item at a time... this is an important feature to add

This is definately a feature that will help.


Users can then select multiple files from a document library for example and have a Flow which sends them as attachments to external users who cannot use shared links for files.

How was this not been done yet... It's insane how limited Microsoft can be with its environment.

I was thinking about creating my own application customizer for this, but its crazy. This options should be added to Sharepoint, running the same flow over many different items/files is completely normal.


Just ran into this situation.  Definitely would be nice to have this feature.  Lots of things for SharePoint can be simplified.

I was trying to setup a flow to "move" items from one list to an archive list (copy/delete original). I create a flow that could do this, but doing it for every single item is impossible. Would be really great if MS could add the feature to allow flow to run for multiple item selections.

Any update on this feature?  I have a current business need!  Thanks

This is a basic feature which is not available. Could you please add this soon? (This is from 2019 and still no reply from microsoft)
