Microsoft Flow is a new service that is the Redmond giant’s answer to Zapier and IFTTT – a service that connects cloud services together, and triggers an action as a result of a trigger (eg create automatically save email attachments to your Onedrive folder)
Over the past decade we’ve seen an unprecedented explosion in the use of the cloud. Today, you can do just about anything via the web, from ordering a car to submitting an expense report, from your personal life to your work life. These cloud solutions have a myriad of advantages – they are easy to sign up for, fast to use, and work well on mobile devices. However, one difficulty is each service operates in its own silo – if you have to do something that requires using more than one service, it will be challenging to get data from one of them to the other.
That’s where Microsoft Flow comes in. Microsoft Flow makes it easy to mash-up two or more different services. Today, Microsoft Flow is publicly available as a preview, at no cost. We have connections to 35+ different services, including both Microsoft services like OneDrive and SharePoint, and public software services like Slack, Twitter and Salesforce.com, with more being added every week. You can now go to https://flow.microsoft.com/ and sign up with a work or school account.
