Individual PowerAutomate-Workflow in SharePoint Lists online

Copper Contributor

Hello all!

 

I have the following problem with Power Automate in relation with Sharepoint Lists online:

 

I have created an instant cloud flow on Power Automate and selected "For a selected item" as trigger/starting point. I then entered here both the website address and the corresponding list name of the desired Sharepoint List.

 

After I had successfully saved the flow, I tried to start the workflow by clicking on "automate" in my Sharepoint List. Unfortunately, no possible flow is displayed under "Automate".

 

So how can I add my own Power Automate flow to my Sharepoint List - regardless of whether it is an immediate flow or a scheduled flow - so that I can use the created flow for the entire list via "Automate"?

 

Many thanks in advance!

@Filou19 to trigger a flow from a selected item in a SharePoint list, add a single of text column  and format it with the following JSON, changing my flow ID to yours in the actionParams line.

 

{
  "$schema": "https://developer.microsoft.com/json-schemas/sp/v2/column-formatting.schema.json",
  "elmType": "button",
  "txtContent": "Run Flow",
  "customRowAction": {
    "action": "executeFlow",
    "actionParams": "{\"id\": \"355cfb96-ddc5-4911-956c-9705f7557ee5\"}"
  },
  "style": {
    "background-color": "#02767a",
    "color": "#ffffff",
    "outline": "transparent",
    "border-width": "1px",
    "border-style": "solid",
    "border-color": "transparent",
    "cursor": "pointer",
    "font-size": "12px"
  }
}

Hi @RobElliot,
thanks a lot for your help! This has worked so far. Since I also want to add a planned flow for individual rows or the entire list, can you tell me how I can permanently add a planned workflow to my SharePoint list so that others without knowledge of PowerAutomate can easily add the flow behind each new row?

@Filou19 I just created a flow with For a selected item trigger, saved it successfully, refreshed SharePoint list browser tab few times (if not working clear cache/cookies), waited for few mins and my flow showed up under Automate menu.

Many thanks for your help @ganeshsanap! Is there also a solution for "planned workflows" when the SharePoint list is defined in the Flow via SharePoint HTML and "get items from this SharePoint list"?

Unfortunately, this hasn't worked so far when I tried it. Not even when I refreshed the browser tab of the list several times.
