Flow is now integrated into Microsoft Excel! With this integration that uses the For a selected row trigger and the Flow launch panel, you can create and trigger on-demand flows for selected rows in any Excel table on spreadsheets hosted in SharePoint or OneDrive for Business. The Microsoft Flow for Excel add-in enables you to connect your data to a wide range of services such as SharePoint, Outlook 365, Dynamics 365, Teams, Visual Studio Online, Twitter, Approvals, etc. In this post, we’ll walk you through this new capability with a hands-on example.

Hello Flow Fans! FIRST!

Creating Bots that integrate with Dynamics 365 has not been the easiest thing to do in the past for non-developers because it has required a lot of coding to be done, and also in order to change the conversation flows you needed to update and redeploy the code for the Bot to make it available to the users. Recently I was introduced to a partner solution called AtBot that allows us to create Bot services through the AtBot portal that links to LUIS and Azure Bot Services, allowing us to build conversation flows and dialogs using Flow as the authoring engine. This allows us to build Bots with zero coding experience that also leverages the power of Flow to connect to other services seamlessly, allowing us to integrate Dynamics 365 using the standard entities. In this walkthough we will show you how to configure and build an AtBot Bot that connects to Dynamics 365, using LUIS as the engine for discoving the users intent and deploy it out to chat platforms like Microsoft Teams. This is gold I tell you, gold!

Advanced | Flow of the Week: Get a daily email with the top failures captured in Application InsightsBlog
Today, i would like to show you how to address an issue which has been surfaced by one of our partners. As the Application Insights team recently shared with us, one of the most common questions from their users is: “How do I get periodic emails with the results of an Analytics query? “. Let’s build a flow which does precisely that. There is now a very simple answer for this, thanks to the new Azure Application Insights connector which was recently introduced.
Today I’m happy to introduce a highly-anticipated milestone: Flow users can now trigger their workflows using physical buttons. This capability comes as a first step of connecting Flow to the real world, to enable leveraging Microsoft Flow for so many more business scenarios. The breadth of services which Flow can connect to, and the depth of Flow logic you can apply – all behind a physical button! Need a simple way to order more inventory in a production floor? to call Tech support in a conference room? to track your consulting work hours for various companies? Just push the button. Microsoft is delivering these capabilities through partnerships with two of the leading products in the physical button space, each with its strong and unique business value: Flic by Shortcut Labs, and Bttn by The Button Corporation.

What’s the best way to notify stakeholders when a business item needs immediate attention? Is it an email marked as high priority? A push notification from a mobile app? A direct message in Slack? All are perfectly viable business communication channels, but if those stakeholders are like most people, none will get their attention as consistently as SMS text messages. Studies from SinglePoint and mobileSQUARED have shown SMS open rates in the range of 97-99%, which dwarfs the open rate of any other communications channel. With the messaging capabilities now available in Microsoft Flow from Nexmo, the Vonage API Platform, you can make sure all important business notifications are delivered via SMS or text-to-speech messages. Augmenting your existing notifications with ad hoc, custom SMS alerts—or creating entirely new ones—will ensure nothing important falls through the cracks. Learn more in this post!
