Activating MS Flow in a SharePoint list app

The next generation of SharePoint lists are being rolled out over time. The Office 365 tenant administrator can set the default behavior for new lists. If the default behavior is set to the classic experience then you will not see the Flow menu at the top of your screen. If the new experience is available you can enable it for your list in the Advanced Settings for the list app. To learn more, see Switch the default experience for lists or document libraries from new or classic.
