The Release of General Availability of Microsoft Flow

Today, Microsoft officially announced the General Availability of Microsoft Flow, an application that can improve workplace productivity among SharePoint users. Microsoft Flow now fully integrates workflows into SharePoint Lists and eventually will, “run any flow on demand for a specific document or list item.”

What is Microsoft Flow?
As a cloud-based service, Microsoft Flow allows users to set up workflows across numerous Office 365 applications quickly, as well as integrate those workflows into other third-party sites. For instance, if you utilize Slack for informal communication and resource sharing, you can now schedule a series of workflows to trigger a notification in the Slack channel of interest. Many services can be utilized with Microsoft Flow, from Sale’s CRMs such as Salesforce to many marketing channels and social feeds, for example, Facebook, Twitter, and MailChimp. Check out all 58 services here.
Sorting Flows by Geography or Team
Environments can be used to “store flows by geography or team.” Currently, Microsoft Flow offers grouping for seven geographic locations (with more to come), including: United States, Europe, Asia-Pacific, India, and Japan.
Have More Data Control with the New Microsoft Admin Center
Now, IT Administrators can stay more organized by viewing company-set workflows with the use of the Microsoft Flow Admin Center. This dashboard-like console allows Administrators to manage service categories easily. For instance, users can quickly secure what outside sources can have access to with grouping categories, such as “Business data only” and “No business data allowed.”
In addition to a better interaction and overall experience, eventually, IT Administrators will be able to view the usage of services by its organization’s flows.”  With this, many corporations can understand what future investments in third-party services and applications should be made to create a positive impact on workplace productivity.
Mobile Accessibility: Try the Workflow App
Users can also control workflows on the go, with the new Flow mobile application available for desktop, IOS, and Android. Users can receive push notifications from their department and easily stay in contact with team members. The app can be utilized to catch the latest progress on an assignment or send out alerts to trigger real-time action to keep projects moving forward.
Move Forward with Flow
Workflows will play a huge part in online communication and teamwork for many corporations utilizing SharePoint, especially those that support remote employees. With the release of General Availability for Microsoft Flow you can start customizing your own productivity stream today. Start automating your workflows!

Anyone who has 'attended' a physical meeting by 'conferencing in' in knows the frustrations & limitations that come from not being in the room. You're the voice in the ceiling & not equally represented in the conversation.

This is no longer acceptable.

Today, we find ourselves facing the “hybrid work paradox.”

Employees are keen to retain flexibility. At the same time, human-to-human collaboration remains important.

To marry the best of both, hone your strategy, spaces, & tech to suit employee needs.

It's the day of the show, y'all!

Join the #PixelMillWebinars this morning at 11am PST for a live panel discussion about what the #digitalworkspace looks like for a #hybrid team, & how #Microsoft365 can empower your users no matter where they're working.


Join the #PixelMillWebinars this Thursday as we welcome key players from @OrchestrySoft, @KieferConsult, and @AP_Mortgage to discuss the hybrid work paradox and how #Microsoft365 can empower your users no matter where they're working.

We've all been itching to get "back to normal," but what does that mean? Are we missing out on valuable lessons learned by trying to return to something that perhaps wasn't working before?

Join us next week for a live panel discussion on the new normal.
