Button to Run a Task

How do I add a button on a UX Detail to run a Process for that record?

You can create a data change event (update) which will trigger a process that you like to run.

So create a stub column say “Refresh” (usually a number column). Then create an action that will just do [Refresh] = [Refresh] + 1. That action (a UX Button) will trigger the data change event which will in turn trigger the process.

To clarify @Steven_Aung’s suggestion, it’s not possible to directly invoke any Automation component from a button the user taps. Instead, the button will have to make a change to a row, that row change must be synced to the server, and Automation must be watching for and react to that row change.
