Microsoft Flow

What is Microsoft Flow? Awesomesauce wrapped up in a clean UI helping you automate almost anything.

I fell in love with Flow almost immediately. A lot of my work in the past has been to integrate systems with intranets, to help centralize user experiences and data hubs. Flow lends its self to this goal very well.

Check out this post for a recording on my session at the Boston Office 365 User Group on an introduction to Microsoft Flow and PowerApps.

Below is a listing of the Flows I’ve shared on my blog to date. Enjoy!
