Nice work CodEngine.in, but my action (an action of Action Type: Flow, a screen to create a new record) is not showing on the "Avaiable Quick Actions". Must be this type of action unsupported?

Yes, I think it has limitations for certain type of actions for the list views.

Here's a way to put a Flow button on your list views:
  1. Create your flow (Screen flow recommended so your user can control how it behaves, but it could be an autolaunched flow also)
  2. Get the URL for your flow:
    • Setup Home > Flows > (dropdown menu at the end of your flow entry)> View Details and Versions > (copy URL value)
  3. On the object (where you want it to appear on list views of that object), create a button:
    • Buttons, Links & Actions > New Button or Link > 
    • Enter a label (should be similar to the flow name for consistency)
    • Don't forget to put a description so someone in the future can understand what's going on!
    • List Button
    • Content Source = URL
    • Paste URL from step 2 above into the big white box
    • Save
  4. Object menu > Search Layouts for Salesforce Classic
  5. List View > (dropdown menu at end) > Edit
  6. In Custom Buttons area, select your new button from the Available Buttons area > Add > Save
  7. App Launcher (nine dots) > select your favourite app > (your object) > check the list views for your new button (you may need to refresh the whole browser page)

@Charles, thanks for your suggestion, but from what I experience: when you launch a screen flow from a custom button via URL - the flow opens up in 'full screen' (rather than 'in a window' the way it does when called from a quick action). And it also loops infinitely - it won't exit the flow when done, but instead start over.

@nick were you ever able to solve this? I have the same issue where I would prefer a flow opens in a window via the action method from list view, however my action is not available to be selected in the List view button layout section.
