Introduction to Microsoft Flow

My adventures within Microsoft Office 365 continue… another new feature to Microsoft Office 365 Power Apps.

Microsoft Flow IconMicrosoft Flow is a new workflow automation solution that can be used to tap application and service data, making it easy to combine different services. Microsoft Flow connects more than 35 services, including SharePoint, OneDrive, Slack, and Twitter, so that users can perform actions such as sending notifications, pushing data into Excel, sending OneDrive files to SharePoint sites, automatically copying files from Dropbox to their SharePoint document library, and creating simple workflow approval tracking. Along with this, business users will be able to use Microsoft Flow to utilise pre-built templates and create their own flows in a visual designer that can work anywhere on the web.
