Force Run?

I wonder about if there is a way of force a Flow to run. Useful for testing purpose.




thanks in advance.

Start the Flow with a Recurrence trigger.

Good idea but


1) I've created a couple of Flows and I dont know hot to add a recurrence step as first step without having to recreate those flows

2) Which are the recurrence values for "run now, only once"?





1) You have to create a new Flow. I think you can change everything except the Trigger.

2) I think that those values dont exist. What I've been doing is setting 1 minute frequency let the flow run and then stop it (Turning it Off) in the My flows list:

Flow run depends on the trigger used in the flow. If you are specifically interested testing a flow then this feature is already there. When you save a flow you would see a screen with a message which will ask you to perform the trigger action and will wait for you to perform the action.


For example in case of file triggers you need to add a new file to the source.





I will create the condition for the trigger. 


All i need is a 'check trigger now' button for testing purposes.
