How to create a Flow to open a PowerApps when a DataStep is updated in Dynamics 365

Scenario - When our Sales Engineer updates a DataStep (in this case "Order Test Tools" to "Yes") in a Dynamics Opportunity a PowerApp (called Test Tool Order Form) needs to open. The data entered into the PowerApp does not need to written back to the Opportunity, but some of the information that is included in the Opportunity needs to be populated into the PowerApp.

 

In theory this seems simple, but I am fairly new at this.

Hi @Dawn_Powell 

you won’t be able to open a canvas app from a flow, because the flow will be fired as a background proces and therefor never come back as real-time. 

 Conceptually (and somewhat far fetched)  maybe you can send a mobile push notification to open the mentioned app on a mobile device.
