Best Method to send Notification to smart phone

Hi, I was just wondering, what is THE BEST method to push a notification to a smart phone within a flow?

 

I was to be able to notify myself of an event if I'm not looking at a flow or away from desk.

 

  • 3rd Party app?
  • SMS message?

 

What is the best way to do this, something other than email.

 

Thanks in advance, looking forward to seeing everyone's responses!

Hey @tbang3000 

 

You might want to have a look at the Notification Service - The notification service enables notifications created by a flow to go to your email account or Microsoft Flow mobile app.

 

You can find few templates and review the documentation at - https://flow.microsoft.com/en-us/connectors/shared_flowpush/notifications/
