New Idea

Flow nicely integrates with various email services, I see separate Actions and Triggers for Gmail, Office 365 Outlook,


All these services follow a similar pattern. They allow emails to be fetched from an inbox and access the Body, Subject, To, CC etc, which is all nice and well. However, what is deparately needed is the ability to get a copy of the full email in MSG or EML format so the entire email can be passed between services so it can be archived or processed further.


I see quite a few people asking for this in the forums and we need it as well so our customers can pass emails (as MSG or EML) into our Flow based PDF Converter.


As requested in the following Flow discussions


Most people ask for a very specific implementation (e.g. Store email in SharePoint), but as we already have the facility to create files in SharePoint (and DropBox, OneDrive, Google Drive, we just need a generic function in each of the provided email services to 'Get email as MSG'. From here on the MSG can be passed into other services without tying the implementation into a specific service.


Trigger a flow, if I change a category of an e-mail that is already in my inbox.


e.g.: I open an e-mail in Outlook desktop and set it's category to 'Licensing' and then close (and save) this e-mail. Then I want to trigger a flow to work on this e-mail.

As discussed in the linked forum post, the ODATA filters for Start & End Date/Time are being ignored. Not sure if being ignored by the Flow connector or the Outlook API.


@v-micsh-msft recommended I submit the bug as an idea.

The ability to create flows based on task and event changes within planner in O365

If I output the date column from a sharepoint list with the value 5.4.2017(UTC+01), it actually outputs 4.4.2017. This is because flow currently only supports UTC+00.

A workaround is to change the timezone from the sharepoint list to UTC+00. But then the "Created" and other time Column are wrong.


Please add support for other Timezones, even if it has to be declared in the flow himself.

It would be useful to be able to link to the item on the list

We'd like a trigger for new Yammer posts that aren't specific to a group, and instead based on a keyword.


Trigger would be something like:

Yammer - When there is a new message with this keyword.


For example:

When someone posts with the word "SharePoint" in any group in Yammer, send a notification to our SharePoint SME. (Or put in an excel sheet, or send an email, or add to OneNote, etc etc)

I'm creating a flow that will syncrhonise between OneDrive and other cloud storage (Dropbox, OneDrive for Business, etc). Unfortunately you can only monitor a single folder at an given time, which makes it really annoying to setup a large sync structure.


Being able to monitor a root folder would be really useful.

Integrate with Microsoft Teams.

Please support integrate with Microsoft Teams.

Status: Planned

Microsoft Teams support is something we're planning on, unfortunately, we cannot provide an ETA at this time because there is no public Microsoft Teams REST API. We are working with Microsoft Teams to get exposing REST APIs booked so we can light it up in Flow. Thank you!

I would like to use shared mailboxes in my Outlook O365 Mail trigger for incoming mails. For me it looks like I can only chose my own mailbox for this trigger.


Shared Mailboxes should be in general supported also to perform actions in a flow, e.g. create calendar entries.

Where is Windows10 Flow app?



Using HTTP service action is a bit complicated to authenticate to Sharepoint Online.


Can we have additional action called like "SharePoint - Custom REST" or something to enter REST url like _api/web/lists/ and get site lists or call other available sharepoint REST calls using users authentication?

Share Flows between users

Is there a way to share Flows?


For Corporate it's not good to assign flow to single user. It would be great to make flows for group of people to monitor and maintain Flow


Status: Completed

This is now available in preview! See here for more details:

I would love to be able to have an action that triggered the creation of a new SharePoint site.

Office 365 Planner

Will you implement Flow for Office 365 Planner also, if so do you have any ETA for this?


Thanks for an excellent solution so far!

Status: Planned

Planner support is something we're working on, unfortunately, we cannot provide an ETA at this time because there are fixes required in the Planner REST API that are required before it can function in Microsoft Flow. We are working with the Planner team to get these changes booked so we can light it up in Flow. Thank you!

It would be great to be able to automate some tasks within O365 Groups. I would like to create a button flow that would create a new group and automatically copy some template documents into the SharePoint document list. Not sure if these would be Outlook or SharePoint or a whole new "Groups" category.

Some possible triggers:

  • When a new group is created
  • When a new message is sent to the conversation
  • When a member joins/leaves the group
  • When files are created/modified in the group 
  • When calendar events are created/modified in the group calendar

Possible Actions:

  • Create a new Group
  • Add/remove members from the group
  • Create events in the group calendar
  • Copy files to/from the group documents

Similar to JorgeCarvalho's suggestion to allow SharePoint mailboxes to be targeted by the Office 365 Outlook integration (


It would be supremely useful if we could select shared mailboxes too (and even resource mailboxes too) for Flows. At the moment, personal credentials are chosen (shared mailboxes don't have authenticable accounts).

Pin to Top

When using the star rating system, it would be good to trigger a flow to pin a high rated document to the top.

Hi - It would be great to be able to have a Bing Maps geocode service in Flow.


This could be used in a multitude of ways, but envisioned here is to use a on-premise gateway to geocode address data in our MS Dynamics CRM platform.

See title. Right now there is a trigger for a new page in a specific section - this is not very flexible. I would like to be able to get a trigger for a new page at any level in a notebook (section group or section or entire notebook).
