Hi,

When a SharePoint list item is found through search (directly in the SharePoint list or site), the item is shown as a single item in the list, and that's fine, it’s how it should behave. However, the possibility to initiate a flow on this selected item is not there. We’ve integrated a button in the list column formatting, it shows but doesn’t work either.

Hi @Nikola Nenadovic 

 

Have you tried right click > Flow > select your flow to see if that option is available to you?

 

I realise it may not be ideal, but if it provides a workaround, it hopefully helps!

 

Cheers

Damien

@Damien RosarioHey, there's no option to run a flow on right click.

Hi @Nikola Nenadovic 

 

Might be the list permissions. I have some lists that seem to give me the full range of right click options whereas other lists give me limited ones.

 

Maybe someone else here has another answer? 

 

Cheers

Hi,

 

I have full admin rights. I've also tested with users that have site admin rights.

 

It's definitely a bug, as the rights haven't changed and it used to work.

Hi @Nikola Nenadovic 

 

Would suggest logging a ticket with Microsoft about it then. Appears to be a weird one!

 

Best wishes with the issue and have a great week/weekend!

 

Cheers

Damien

Hi @Nikola Nenadovic 

 

The same issue here! I agree with you on that's definitely a bug:
