Where does user find a run-only flow?

Sorry, this is probably a really simple thing, but I've created a flow that is manually triggered. I've then added a user (and intend to add a lot more) with run-only permissions.

 

My question is, how does this user actually run it? I've logged in as their account and can't find the flow when selecting the Flow tile from portal.office.com, so where does the user need to go to actually trigger the flow?

 

The intended purpose of this flow is to run on OneDrive content and would typically be run from a PC/laptop as opposed to a mobile device. Ideally I would like it to be available in a centralised location (e.g. from clicking on the Flow tile from portal.office.com).

Re: Where does user find a run-only flow?

Hi @JojenReed,

 

It seems that your flow is triggered by a Flow button. When running a flow that is triggered by a button, after adding your group members as run-only users, they could trigger the flow on Flow mobile app. Please suggest your group members to install the Flow mobile app then trigger the flow on it.

 

If you also want to trigger the run-only user flow from a PC/laptop, please consider submitting a request on Flow ideas Forum:

Re: Where does user find a run-only flow?

Strange but I have added few members as Run-Only users for the flow that is being triggered by the flow button but non of them are able to see the flow!! On the other hand, when I add these users as Owner they are able to see the flow but not when they are added as Run-Only users.

 

Am I missing anything?

 

Thanks

A button Flow can be added to the mobile app for the run-only user.  They may need to select Get More at the top of the Buttons view on the app.

Using a web browser (eg on a PC) go to the Dynamics portal (start at www.office.com and select Dynamics) to find the Flow represented as an app.

The flow buttons are no longer on Dynamics since a recent update apparently.

 

Is the only place to access them now in the mobile flow app?
