Advanced | Flow of the Week: Localize messages used in Flows using JSON object variablesBlog
Object variables can be used to provide “lookup table” functionality to Flows that need to initialize sets of variables together. The coalesce function can help with “fallback” or default behavior for keys that aren’t found in the table. This Flow of the Week will show how to use this technique to select sets of localized strings for use in easily generating emails in different languages from a single Flow.

Learn about a flow that the Flow team uses to follow-up on user feedback. A bug is automatically created in Visual Studio for every user comment that is tagged with ‘Open Bug’. This ensures that feedback isn’t lost and is tracked in Visual Studio for an engineer to begin investigation.

A fun guide to using Power BI with Microsoft FlowBlog
In Sweden there is a company called Hemglass that delivers ice cream to people’s homes in refrigerated vans. We are going to enter this market and try to beat them at their own game and for that we are going to use Microsoft Flow and Power BI. Using Flow, every morning we will collect the weather forecast and send it to our drivers using Office 365, so they know how much they should stock on their vans. We will also send the data to Power BI so we can store it in our records. We can, after a while, compare the weather data with the sales in our vans and develop a more accurate stock strategy.
Introducing the Microsoft Teams connector for FlowBlog

Advanced | Flow of the Week: Tracking changes in a deploymentBlog
In a previous blog, we saw how the Microsoft Flow team tracks Flow portal and backend deployments as they get deployed across regions. While knowing which builds are deployed to which region helps during a live site investigation, an equal if not more important piece of information is knowing what changes were deployed as part of a build. Knowing what changes comprise a build and where it is deployed helps assess the impact of a live site incident and take corrective actions accordingly. In this Flow of the Week, we’re developing an end-to-end deployment e-mail notification system and also generating Power BI-based change tracking report without writing a single line of code.
