If you are using the Dynamics 365 Unified Interface and are looking for the Run Workflow command bar button then you might have some difficulties.  The Run Workflow button has moved and it is not obvious where to find it.

The simple answer is that the Run Workflow button is now under the Flow fly-out button on the Command Bar.

For more details keep reading below or see the short video I created.

Run Workflow button in the old Web Interface

In the old Web Interface, if you are to view a list of records and then select a record you will find the Run Workflow button in the Command Bar.  This allows you to run any on demand workflow that has been configured for that record.

Run Workflow button in the Unified Interface

In the new Unified Interface, if you are to view a list of records and then select a record you will not be able to find the Run Workflow button in the Command Bar.  Well, at least not easily.

I had a hunch that I should look under the Flow fly-out button since Flow is essentially another way to configure workflow in Dynamics 365. Maybe Microsoft has bundled all of the workflow on-demand triggers together?

It turns out that they have put the workflow on-demand triggers together.  If you have an on-demand workflow configured for the entity that is being looked at then the Run Workflow options appear under the Flow fly-out button.

Note: If there are no on-demand workflows configured for the entity then the Run Workflow options will not appear under the Flow fly-out button.
