In all my projects I come to the point where I want the user to wait for a flow to end ór get notified if so. Where is the possibility to start a flow synchronous, like when using workflows? Spoiler alert; I haven’t found a way to start Microsoft Automate flows synchronously from a Model Driven App. Unfortunately. But there are some possibilities to make the user experience a little bit smoother!

How can we make the user experience smoother?

There are two suggestions I used in a previous project to make the user experience smoother when using (asynchronous) Automate flows:

  1. Show the current status of a running flow in a message box
  2. Start the flow from a nice button, or from the ribbon
