Flow Mobile now supports Button Trigger tokens
With Button flows gaining popularity, we want to make sure you’re getting the most out of it.
As of now, when triggering a button flow, you will have valuable information such as: When was this button flow triggered, by Whom, and Where. Various tokens were added to the manual trigger step of “Flow Button for Mobile”, and new templates were added which leverage these tokens.
There are three types of button trigger tokens, each offering several tokens for you to use:
- User info
- User name
- User email
- Postal code
- Full address
All tokens refer to the location & time at the triggering moment, and to the user who’s triggering the Button flow.
Please note that in order to use the location tokens, you’ll have to grant the Flow app with location permissions, and to turn on your device’s location service.
Now, imagine all the new scenarios which you can unlock. Here are a few template examples:
- Track your working hours
- Save my location to Google Sheet
- Send me a push notification with my current location
Using Button trigger tokens
In order to use the above tokens, all you have to do is to create a button template.
You can create a button template from blank, or start with a button template. Once created, the above tokens will be suggested as parameters from previous steps.
Just click on the target field and choose the relevant token out of the list, as seen here:
