Passing Parameters to a Flow from a salesforce report


We have a use case in which we need to be able to invoke a flow and also pass parameters from a salesforce report. Is there any way to do it ?.

If there is no direct way, I was thinking to invoke a Visualforce page and pass url parameters and then use those parameters to launch a flow and pass the parameters. Please let me know of any suggestions.

Possible Suggestion/Solution #1

I did this by adding custom formula field to my object e.g. 'Flow Action' and using the HYPERLINK formula function. Then i wrote a Report and included the field.

Step 1. Create Custom Formula Field.

Step 2. Add it to a Report.

NOTE: This approach allows you to use the full power of formula fields to define context specific Flow Actions, that start different flows based on the row data if needed.
