Virtual button from Homey to Alexa

Good morning,
I connected homey to alexa but I can’t see the virtual buttons I created in homey.
I need to use them to activate flows when a vocal command is sent to alexa. For example when saying :alexa open the door it shall activate a virtual button that start a flow that not only open the door but also turn on some bulbs according to daytime.

Thanks everyone for the help.

You have to use a virtual switch. The virtual buttons do not show up. You add the switch and activate it with Alexa. In the Then part of the flow you just turn the virtual switch off again.

This is my flow for activate the PlayStation for flow. Its just one way you can to do it.
