Buttons on Other Apps?

My company has a mobile app for our own users.  It would be great if we could preinstall Flow buttons in this app to allow all of our users to take advantage of flows and buttons we have created.   For example, one tab in the App could be "Trigger workflows" and that tabl would contain a list of the Flow buttons we had created.

 

Is that possible?  Can a button exist other than in the Flow app? If not, is there another way to accomplish this?  Can the buttons we add be included as part of the mobile app itself or be dynamically added to the app?

 

(Obviously, a user would need to authenticate with MSFT first.)  

 

If this were possible, would the user need to also have the Flow app installed?  Especially if any of the buttons used features like location.

Hi msalamon,

 

To trigger a flow using a button, we will have to download the mobile app for Microsoft Flow. The Buttons screen is where you can trigger any flows that contain a Button - Manually trigger a flow trigger.


So we are not able to trigger a flow by clicking a button that exist other than in the Flow Mobile app. All of the users need to have the accession to Microsoft Flow and download Flow mobile app if they want to trigger a flow by clicking a button.


Please see this doc about “Manage flows with the mobile app” for more details:
