Q2 Update for Microsoft Flow

New updates to Microsoft Flow allow for richer administrative and lifecycle control – solutions built with Flow can be imported and exported as packages. Microsoft Flow also has integration Azure Logic apps: any Flow can now be converted to a Logic app. To enable richer Flow, Customers can now use Excel-like expressions in Flow actions and configure button inputs and button sharing. Finally, a range of Microsoft products – including SharePoint, OneDrive for Business and Dynamics 365 - are adding the power of end-user automation by embedding Flow more deeply in their user experiences and will be available in the coming weeks.


Use expressions in flow actions

Enter expressions in any action—get the current time, add numbers together, replace a part of text, and much more. Flows use the same language as Azure Logic Apps, and if you’re not familiar with it, there’s inline help with details on every expression.
