Trigger Flow in Excel

Trying to use the Flow Excel Template "Send an email for a selected row", the description states that to use it "To trigger the flow, select a row inside your table, go to the Data tab in the Excel ribbon, and select Flow." Nowhere in Office 365 Excel version 1803 do I see the referenced Flow button in the Data Tab on the Ribbon even though I have the data in a Table as specified and have selected a Row. What am I missing here?

Re: Trigger Flow in Excel

Hi @dpace23236,


As I see from template description this template is related to Excel Online (Business) and also that this trigger is in Preview yet, so there is possible it will be changed in future until it will be publicly released. That means it will be available in excel online, not the office 365 excel you have installed on your computer.




And also I'm not sure how far is rolling of this functionality in Excel Online, it can take some time till it will be available in your tenant for use.
