How to make your Flic Button work in Microsoft Flow

Flic Buttons

Recently I got hold of a Microsoft Flow Flic button. In this post I’m going through the steps of configuring my Flic button and how you could use it. If you don’t have a flic button yet, then you can order yours on the flic site. Note that you will need to use your mobile connection to make your button work. So if you don’t have a connection on your mobile your flic button will not work either.

Sending out an email after a click

My aim of this post is to send out an email with a link to my current location. I will use a link like the one below:

http://maps.google.com/?q=<lat>,<lng>

All I need to do is get my location using my flic. So I’ll start by creating a trigger.

Flow Trigger
Note that before this trigger will do anything you will have to assign the Flow action to your Flow button within the flic app. If you don’t do this the triggers will not start even though you. But that is not all!
You will have to make sure that the Include GPS information is included in your settings of the action.
Flow
Now you just have to include the following expression in your email and the link is sent!

concat('<a href=http://maps.google.com/?q=',triggerBody()?['latitude'],',',triggerBody()?['longitude'],'>I am here</a>')

Flow Flow
And I now receive an email
Email Here I am
