New Ways to Open Web Pages from Flow

The new OpenURL Flow Action allows a URL to be opened by your Flow. It runs everywhere, unlike the Load Web Page Flow Action.

This action allows the URL to be opened in three modes:

  • newTab: Opens in a new tab in the browser
  • newPage: Opens in a new browser window
  • replace: replaces the existing flow, effectively terminating it

Use one of the above strings as an input to the ‘mode’ parameter. The default is ‘newTab’.

This action uses popup technology and may get blocked by popup blockers. If that’s becoming a problem for you, consider the alternative Load Web Page action.
