Running a 'manually trigger a flow' from SharePoint navigation

Hi all,

I've created a Flow for the upload of documents into SharePoint, which is designed to prompt the user for document metadata. It begins with 'manually trigger a flow' to collect the necessary inputs, including a file picker. See image below for more detail.

I now want to be able to add this flow to the left hand navigation on my SharePoint site, but can't find any way of generating a url for this. I've been advised that I might be able to achieve this by using a HTTP connector, but I have no idea how to start with this.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Note: I appreciate that there are ways of mandating metadata in SP uploads using document types, but the main issue with this is that it is not at all consistent across upload methods. Of 'upload in Classic', 'upload in Modern', drag and drop, Windows Explorer, Save As, some will mandate collection of metadata and some won't, so my Flow is an attempt to find a better way of doing things.
