Microsoft Flow

Microsoft Office 365 Flow is cloud-based software that allows employees to create and automate workflows and tasks across multiple applications and services without help from developers. Automated workflows are called flows.

It does not just integrate with other Microsoft products. It can be used with a wide variety of apps and services — what Microsoft calls connectors — including SQL Server, Salesforce, Twitter, Box, DocuSign, Slack, Skype and Google Drive.

Connector is an API proxy that allows these services to connect to Microsoft Flow, as well as Azure Logic Apps and PowerApps, in the cloud.

The Users can take advantage of an extensive library of prebuilt flows, also known as templates. Example templates include the ability to:

  • Save Email attachments to OneDrive
  • Email can send to any audience when a Power BI data alert is triggered
  • SharePoint list items can be copied into a CSV each week
  • It Saves tweets that include a specific hashtag to a SharePoint list
  • We can get a push notification when you receive an email from your boss
