Run a Power automate flow without a button

Hi guys,

 

Is there a way to automatically run a Power Automate flow from Power BI?

Currenly I'm using a button.

I would like the flow to run every day in the morning.

 

Thanks

Hi @KevinGui14 ,

 

Sign in to your Power Automate account.

 

Select Create > Scheduled flow.

Specify the start date and time for your flow, and how often you want it to repeat.

 

For your requirement, you can set it to repeat every day in the morning at your desired time.

 

Since you mentioned using a switch to send an email and then saving values into a table, you will need to replicate this logic in your new scheduled flow.

 

Use the New step button to add actions for sending an email and for saving data to your table.

After configuring the actions, save your flow and test it.

 

For more detailed guidance on creating and managing scheduled flows, you might find the following documentation helpful:

If you have any other questions please feel free to contact me.

To accomplish this you need a trigger besides a button. Can I see your flow?

Can you please provide more context.

Hi,

 

I have a Instant cloud flow where I send an email. Every morning I have to press the button to trigger the action. I would like to have a scheduled trigger.
