Recently I tried to share a flow and I got trial warning. It took a while before I started to understand how Sharing flows in Power Automate works.
The start of my sharing flows confusion
Table of Contents
I created a flow using a new account and I tried sharing flows with another account and I was given a start your 90-day trial dialog
Also when I tried looked at the flow settings, the Owners had a Compare plans button there.
The Power Platform community helping
Quite quickly, I send out a tweet trying to find out what was going on as I hadn’t seen this Compare plans button or the trial dialog on sharing before.
It wasn’t until Ferran Chopo responded to my tweet that I started to figure out what had gone wrong.
The solution to Sharing flows
So as it says in the second tweet, you will need a paid Power automate licence! within the twitter thread this was confused by being a premium licence. It is not! And the link in the above mentioned documentation page is definitely wrong. that links sends you to the buy a premium licence page. You don’t need a premium Power Automate licence
All you need is a Microsoft 365 E1/E3/E5 licence as these are paid for. Once I gave my account a Microsoft licence I managed to share my flows.
Finding out your licence details
Did you know that when you visit flow.microsoft.com that you can press Ctrl-Alt-A and you get an overview of your licence details?
