Microsoft Flow

Process & task automation workflow solution

4.0/5 (1 review)

Microsoft Flow overview

Microsoft Flow is a cloud-based workflow solution which enables the creation and management of simple and complex workflows to automate tasks and processes across multiple services or applications. The software is aimed at both “Citizen Integrators” within enterprise organizations, and IT decision makers wanting to delegate workflow creation to line-of-business partners. The ability to manage an on-premise data gateway allows connection to both on-premise and cloud data.

Microsoft Flow allows users to create complex, multi-step flows to trigger multiple actions or advanced options with a single event. Advanced options allow users to customize the actions carried out, such as marking an email sent through the workflow as high priority. Conditions can also be added to flows to specify that actions should only be performed in certain situations. One example usage is to archive received Tweets in SharePoint based on keywords they contain, but only if the Tweet is retweeted a certain number of times.

With Microsoft Flow, users can create multiple approval flows to automate approvals for vacation, travel, or overtime requests, or budgets, contracts, articles, and other documents. Approvers are automatically sent email notifications for new requests, and all requests can be viewed and approved from the unified approvals center. Users can also create custom data loss prevention (DLP) policies to ensure that organizational data is protected and prevent workflows for accessing or using protected data.

Benefits

Multiple actions and advanced options can be added to flows with a single trigger, such as using an item added to SharePoint to trigger sending an email and creation of a file in Dropbox.

Recurring flows can be scheduled to perform single or multiple tasks once every minute, hour, or day, on a specified date, or after a defined number of minutes, hours, or days.

Automated workflows can be created to process approvals for requests or documents, with email notifications for approvers, and all approval requests accessible through a unified approvals center.

Data loss prevention (DLP) can be used to define which connectors can access or share business data, to prevent sensitive data from being published.

The native iOS and Android apps allow users to create automated workflows, generate and share buttons which trigger workflows with a tap, and receive push notifications for flow activity.
