One of the major advantages of setting up a hybrid SharePoint 2019 environment is that you can use the latest and greatest tools of Office 365, even for your On-Premises environment. One of those tools is Microsoft Flow, and by setting up your environment correctly, you can now have triggers and actions in Flow, on your On-Premises lists and libraries!
However, one of the things that is available in SharePoint Online, but not in SharePoint 2019 is having a button in each list and library that allows you to go to Microsoft Flow, or even create a quick Flow directly in SharePoint so you can quickly automate business processes. This can confuse users and make it difficult for them to know where to go and what tools to use. But there is hope!
One of my good friends, SharePoint MVPs and co-author of Deploying SharePoint 2019 Trevor Seward, just released a new open-source app called SharePoint 2019 Flow Extension which bridges some of the gap. As the description says, it provides a Flow button in the command bar as you can see in the screenshot below!
You can get the solution and instructions on Trevor’s GitHub over here: https://github.com/Nauplius/SharePoint-2019-Flow-Extension !
PS: If you want to learn how to configure the Data Gateway for using Flow on SharePoint Server 2019, make sure to check out the book by Trevor and myself titled Deploying SharePoint 2019 !
