How to Share a Flow (Two Methods)

Posted by: Bergen Rackley on June 28,2021

Ever wonder if fellow colleagues would benefit from automations (flows) that you have created?    Well here are two methods for sharing those flows:   For those visual learners check out this short How-to video.

Method 1: From the ‘My Flows’ Screen

Step 1

Find the flow in the ‘My Flows’ tab at flow.microsoft.com. If you are the only user with access to the flow (i.e., created by you and never shared with anyone), it should be in ‘Cloud Flows’. If other users have access, it should be in ‘Shared With Me’.
