Q3 Update for Microsoft Flow

At Microsoft Ignite 2017 we have many great announcements: there are new SharePoint integrations, including "In-the-box" send for review flows. Microsoft Flow is now integrated in Dynamics 365 for Customer Engagement. We are providing better visibility for admins: we are listed on the Microsoft Trust center - showing certifications, like HIPAA, ISO and SOC - we have Power BI analytics, and, audit logs in Office 365. Finally, there is richer connectivity with six new connectors like LinkedIn, Office 365 Groups and Skype for Business, and we even added SQL triggers and support for Custom connectors that connect on-prem.

Flow of the Week: Selective calendar event sync using Condition advanced editor mode and Boolean expressions

Some of the most popular Flow templates sync calendar events from one service to another (Office 365 to Google, Google to Office 365). I've found these useful, but I don't want all events synced. In this post I'll show how to use the Flow designer to write more complex Boolean logic in the "Condition" card's advanced editor. This Boolean logic will help my Flow select only the events I care about syncing (using the body, subject, and/or time of the event). Along the way I'll show how to use other Flow features like the "Control" connector to terminate a Flow run, datetime manipulation and formatting, and preventing infinite loops.
