Microsoft Flow Spring 2018 Update

Today we are announcing a new type of flow: a Business process flow. These flows, based on the Common Data Service for Apps, define a set of steps for people to follow to take them to a desired outcome.

With this new add-in, you can create or trigger automation on an Excel table with the Flow button the Data tab in the ribbon. Finally, we have several new features coming to help you repair flows and build flow solutions that support full application lifecycle management.
