Sending Flow Result Messages Back to a Power App

Bing AI Image Creator got a little weird, but let’s go with it. The others were far weirder. The Flow Setup The Scope Content The Power App Recently

Recently I was asked if I could add a success message to a Power App – something to indicate that they’ve clicked the button. I added a beautiful spinner and dusted off my hands, job well done.

Well, no, they wanted to know that the Power Automate flow that the button triggered had actually run successfully. This took me putting on my thinking cap, and ultimately, it was going through and tagging my older blog posts that made me realize that I knew exactly how to do this. Probably. Hopefully.

Flow and Power Apps are working together?

Flow and Power Apps are two different tools that can work together to create custom business solutions.

Power Apps is a tool that allows users to create custom applications without any coding experience. It has a user-friendly interface that allows users to create and design apps that can be used on various platforms, such as web, mobile, and tablet.

Flow, on the other hand, is a tool that allows users to create automated workflows between different apps and services. With Flow, users can create workflows that automate tasks such as sending emails, creating tasks, updating records, and much more.

The two tools can work together in a few ways:

  1. Power Apps can trigger Flows: Power Apps can be used to trigger Flows based on certain events. For example, when a user submits a form in a Power App, it can trigger a Flow that sends an email to the appropriate person or updates a record in a database.
  2. Flow can be embedded in Power Apps: Flows can be embedded directly into Power Apps. This means that users can trigger a Flow without ever leaving the Power App they are working in.
  3. Data can be passed between Power Apps and Flows: Power Apps and Flows can share data with each other. This means that data collected in a Power App can be used as input for a Flow, and data output from a Flow can be used to populate fields in a Power App.

By combining the two tools, users can create powerful and customized business solutions that automate tasks, streamline workflows, and improve efficiency.
