Introducing "Request sign-off" for SharePoint users, four new connectors and other improvements

When you select a file or item in SharePoint, you’ll see a new Request for sign-off flow. This flow doesn't require any configuration or setup, and sends a sign-off request with a single click. This month we have four new connectors: Cloud Connect Studio, Dynamic Signal, Elastic OCR, and PoliteMail. Also, we have a new video to help explain the key concepts when you build a flow from scratch.

Additionally, there are improvements to the Flow user experience: we provide you with additional details when you share (or run shared) flows, and will automatically trim SharePoint URLs you paste into the flow designer.

Rich text in approvals and multi-select inputs for buttons

Starting this week you can use Markdown to format the approval details that you send. These approvals will show up formatted in the Flow mobile app, the Flow website and the flow emails.

Return data to PowerApps from a flow, build lists in a flow, and test a flow with previous run data

Build flows that can be called from an app built with PowerApps, and return data back to the app. This means you can use the visual drag-and-drop flow designer to build the logic you need for the app. We have also added a new list builder into flow that can be used for adding multiple attachments to an email, for example. Finally, we have added a new Test flow button to the designer that lets you test your flow with trigger data from previous flow runs.

In addition, we have seven other updates, including new buttons to find errors in Apply to each loops, Approval reassignment, support for the United Kingdom region and more!

Browse the history of your approvals and other updates

So far this month, we have released several new capabilities in Microsoft Flow. First, you can browse your Approval history -- see all the approval requests you've sent out, including the responses, the comments that were sent, and the exact time they happened. Next, we added four new connectors: Excel Online (Business), Excel Online (OneDrive), Azure SQL Data Warehouse, and Pitney Bowes Tax Calculator. We have new tooltips inside the flow designer, so you can more easily tell different dynamic content apart inside of actions, and preview expressions without opening the full expression editor. We also have new capabilities to control concurrency and retry policies. Finally, we have released new documentation on our conformance to accessibility standards.
