Running team flows from Excel

Hi all,

I have build a flow which is run from an Excel spreadsheet (the trigger being "For a selected row"). I have shared this flow with a member of my team. While the flow is visible to him under "Team flows" on the Flow web page, it is not visible to him on the Excel sheet. He receives the message that he does not have any flows linked to this spreadsheet.


Do you know whether this is expected behaviour, i.e. whether it is possible to only run flows from Excel which you have built yourself? Or is it possible to run team flows as well?

Hi @anne_danko 


Where is the Excel stored? In a SharePoint or in your OneDrive?


Probably the user doesn't have permission to access the Excel so you get that error. You can share the Power Automate, but the connection being used is the user's local probably, being their own OneDrive for example.

Thanks, Manuel. The Excel is stored on a SharePoint to which my colleague has access to. He can also open and edit the Excel; he also has the Flow add-on but when selecting it, he is told that there are no flows.

Hey @anne_danko 


How have you shared the flow with the user? Did you add them as a run only user? If so, what is the connection properties? Ensure that it is set to provided by the run only user and try again!



Hope this helps!

Hi @anne_danko,


It may be caused by the connection, you could export the connection, then import it on your colleague side. Then create a connection of the trigger by using his OneDirve account and try it again.
