Run Flow From Tiles

  • Dark
    Light

Overview

Tiles provide the functionality of Designer Elements within a Page/Dashboard. This includes the ability to launch a Flow when a user clicks a Simple Tile on a Page.

The following document demonstrates how to launch a basic Flow from within a Page/Dashboard. Additional examples can be viewed in Example Labs, such as configuring a simple tile to display a count of Folders created within a date range.


Example

  1. From the Page Designer, add a Simple Tile from Toolbox > TILES to the workspace. 
  2. From the Properties of the Simple Tile, select PICK OR CREATE FLOW, then CREATE a new Tile Source Flow
  3. From the resulting Flow Designer, configure the TILE SETUP Properties for the Create Tile Data step as desired, by configuring a Line of text. 
  4. Under ACTIONS > Tile Action Type, select Run Flow.

    Then, set Flow to Constant, and PICK or Create a new Flow for the step. 
    Passing in Flow Inputs
    If required, the Input Data may be passed in by enabling the Configure Flow Inputs boolean and then defining the Inputs via SHOW EDITOR under FLOW INPUTS.

  5. Save the Flow, then close via X

  6. From the Page Designer, Save the Page. Then, from the Top Action Bar, click Preview

  7. From the Preview window, click the Tile; verify that the Flow runs as intended and that the Form appears and can be completed.
