Remove Flow Ribbon Button

Hey D365’ers! Welcome to {{ quirk.works }}, a blog series where we try to solve a Dynamics 365 or Power Platform problem with unconventional solution. For our first part of the series, let’s try to remove the Flow ribbon button.

So you want to remove the Flow ribbon button?

Yes sir, we don’t want our users to see it as per our requirements document.

Tried removing it with Ribbon Workbench?

Ribbon buttons are easy to hide/show using the Ribbon Workbench. Just select the ribbon button, right click, and click Hide.

Hide also the rest of the ribbon button sub-menu.

And there you go. What? It’s not hidden isn’t it?

Here’s a {{ quirk.works }}

There is a quirk with how the Flow ribbon button can be removed.

Click the cog icon on the upper right side of the screen and click Advanced Settings.

Go to Settings > Administration

Go to System Settings.

Open the Customization tab. There you have it, select No from the option Show Microsoft Flow on forms and in the site map. Click the OK button and we’re all set.

Conclusion

Not every ribbon button can be hidden using the Ribbon Workbench, sometime you have to look out of the XrmToolBox. Just playing with some puns, no offense meant for these great tools as I admire these awesome works from Scott and Tanguy. Until our next {{ quirk.works }}, stay-tuned D365’ers. I’ll keep you posted.
