pin buttons to screen

I saw this great video  and was under the impression that "now you can start a complete automated worflow "with a tap of a button right from your favourite screen". Is that for the people whose favourite screen is a tab in Microsoft Flow (slow starting) mobile app?

Am I missing the point?

Hi

Pinning buttons to your homescreen, as widgets, is currently supported on iOS or Android devices. Pinning buttons to your homescreen, as livetiles, is not yet supported on Windows10. If you are interested in this feature I recommend you post it to Flow ideas forum. We track the posted ideas there to ensure we give precedence and priority to items which receive higher votes.

 

Thank you.

Hi @nsgma,

 

The video is an instruction for Microsoft Flow button trigger.

You may take a look at the details in the following blog:

The power of buttons! You can now share your Button Flows and pin to your home screen

 

The Button is a Flow trigger introduced in Microsoft Flow, and it is workable under Flow mobile App, which you could pin to any of screen of your mobile device (assuming the mobile device supported Flow mobile App).

 

Regards,

Michael

Hello Michael,

Thank you for your reply.

I understand but the video is somehow misleading. It should say "with three taps of a button right from your favourite screen". you tap the Flow App icon, then you tap the buttons tab and finally you tap the "complete automated workflow". It is not as catchy I understand but would be more honest.

 

Actually on that subject can I direct you for another thread of mine that explains how these 3 taps become 6 and 7 taps and I can only start my "complete automated workflow" 20 minutes after I wanted to trigger my, say working hours tracking...

 

any help would be welcomed on that thread,

Hi @Adi_Regev 

 

You said it is possible to pin buttons to my homescreen, as widgets, on iOS. Please, how?

It doesn´t work.

 

Thank you!

Was this feature removed from iOS?  There is no way to add a button to a home screen. 

 

@Adi_Regev this thread  as shown that this is not exactly the case.
