Creating Flow from a business and not an individual

Hello,

 

We as a company are new to Office 365 about 3 years old now, and it was rolled out in pieces one app at a time.  So now we are finding ourselves going back and trying to redo stuff we did which is frustrating for some.

 

I am really liking Flow and have created many already.  My question is when I create them, they all come from me.  Most are emails.  I have created flows for other departments, but it is still "me" doing the action.  I am concerned that if I should leave the company the flows will get erased or stop working.  Is there a way to create a flow from a "company"/"department" point of view?

 

Thank you for your help,

Re: Creating Flow from a business and not an individual

Hi @ocmcadams ,

 

Flow's configuration contains a lot of connections, and most of the connections are created by relying on personal accounts rather than business accounts.

So if you use your account to configure, you may encounter similar problems.

  • For some Flows for organization, you could consider sharing as Team Flow, and the Owner can change the connection according to their needs.
  • Or you could export the Flow template to people in organizations, allowing others to create their own Flows instead of managing them yourself.
  • Send a copy function may also be included in your consideration.

This is some of the suggestions I can provide at the moment. If they are not in line with your needs, please consider submitting your feedback on the Idea forum so that we can make better improvements.
