Activate "Automatic Triggered Flow" manually on Document Library Sharepoint

Dear Sirs,


I have a question about subject.

I am using Document Library (Sharepoint) and Flow.

I know that there are some type of trigger on Flow like, Automatic Trigger(Auto-Flow) and Manually Trigger(Manual-Flow).


I set up an Auto-Flow like that.

When a folder is created...

>If a folder is Top Level, go to below. If no, Exit.


>wait 3 minutes to input metadata by our staff.

>create a child folder in the folder with specific name.

>copy metadata for the child folder.

-repeat a few times-

>make an item on Sharepoint List & copy metadata.

>make OneNote page



This Auto-Flow is very useful but it sometimes make failed (due to my miss-setting).

Just in case it failed, I made same but Manual-Flow.

But, recently, my Auto-Flow became long and complicated. It is not good to maintain Manual-Flow version.


I sometimes use re-try feature to failed one. But, today, there is no failed one & I am confused.

I am glad if you inform me how to activate Auto-Flow manually.


Thank you.

Hi @To_Na to run the flow, you can edit the flow and use the Test option to run the flow manually. But if you want to use the information then either you should run the test and trigger it or use the failed run to trigger the same with the failed run information.


Hope it helps, please like it or mark it as a solution if it resolves your clarification or issue
