Manage flows in Microsoft Flow from your phone

View a list of all flows that you created and, for each flow, view its events and actions, enable or disable it, and explore its run history.


  • Install the Microsoft Flow mobile app for Android, iOS, or Windows Phone on a supported device. The graphics in this topic reflect the iPhone version of the app, but the graphics on Android and Windows Phone look similar.
  • If you don't already have a flow, create one on the website for Microsoft Flow. For easier testing, use one that you can trigger yourself instead of waiting for an external event.

The flow in this tutorial runs when you receive mail from a specific address:

Trigger flow on receipt of mail from specific address

You could configure such a flow with your personal email address for testing and a different address (for example, your manager's) when the flow is ready for real use.

When the flow runs, it sends a custom push notification, with this syntax, to your phone:

Send message to Slack

Note: You can also monitor flow activity from the mobile app.

Manage a flow

  1. Open the mobile app, and then tap My flows at the bottom of the screen to list all your flows.

    Each entry shows the name of the flow, icons for its events and actions, the time when it ran most recently, and an icon that indicates whether the most recent run succeeded.
