Using one button to trigger a flow AND open Power Apps?

New Contributor

I know that there is a way to format a column in a SharePoint list to open to a specific screen in Power Apps through deep linking, and that you can trigger a Power Automate flow with a button in a SharePoint list, but I'm wondering if there is a way to do both with one button. I currently have a link embedded using the HTML formatting that directs to an information screen in Power Apps. This screen contains information from the SharePoint list item, but I also need it to include information from another source. I've written a flow that will gather and return the needed information, but it is currently being triggered by a button in Power Apps. Is there any way that, with HTML column formatting, I'd be able to trigger the flow when Power Apps is opened from the SharePoint list?

@reaganbreaux Unfortunately No. This is not possible by creating a single hyperlink in list view using JSON.

Possible Solutions:

  1. Create two separate links/buttons in single list column using JSON formatting - But again user have to click twice --> Not good
  2. Create a link to Power Apps >> Run your flow in onStart property of App control in Power Apps >> Navigate to required screen.
