   Introduction to Microsoft Flow

-Microsoft flow is a cloud-based system with which you can create an automated workflow
and thus simplify business processes and manage them effectively, also, a subscription-based service which will help you  create automated workflows between your favorite apps and services
The module provides you with an interface that lets you combine two or more cloud services to create workflows, like those that let you automate file synchronization,
 create alerts, organize data and more.

For example, you can receive a text message each time someone emails you, copies files from OneDrive to SharePoint, posts photos from Instagram to Dropbox; with it, you can turn repetitive tasks into multi-step workflows that integrate seamlessly with all Office 365 products.

- Microsoft Flow automates everything from simple push notifications and content management to complex business processes with defined steps and stages.

- The most common use of Flow is to trigger notifications. When a new lead is added to Microsoft Dynamics CRM, for example,
an automated workflow can send sales representatives an email or text message with details about the lead.

- another  example, when a new file is added to Dropbox or OneDrive for Business,
 an automated workflow can instantly post a copy of the file to SharePoint.

- Microsoft Flow is also used to collect data. For instance, if the user wants to see what people are saying about a particular brand,
 they can create a trigger that will capture new tweets that mention the brand and put a copy of each tweet in a SQL database for sentiment mining.

Microsoft Flow 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 Salesforce, SQL Server, Twitter, Box, DocuSign, Slack, Skype and Google Drive. A connector is an API proxy that allows these services to connect to Microsoft Flow, as well as PowerApps and Azure Logic Apps, in the cloud.

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

  • Save Gmail attachments to OneDrive
  • Email any audience when a Power BI data alert is triggered
  • Copy SharePoint list items into a CSV each week
  • Save tweets that include a specific hashtag to a SharePoint list
  • Get a push notification when you receive an email from your boss

If none of the templates fit the process that needs to be automated, users can also make their own flows.

Microsoft Flow is designed so that nontechnical staff can automate workflows without the help of a developer. The Microsoft Flow Admin Center allows an administrator to manage users, permissions and roles and ensure that employee-created flows comply with
data loss prevention policies.
