It is a common scenarion in on prem SharePoint to utilize Information Management Policies at the site collection scope to initiate workflows. Currently there is no way to trigger a workflow from a SharePoint Online retention policy.
Lovely to see that we can start to add list options as text using the mobile Flow app. I've been wanting the option to specify a SP List to select options from. This could be extended to metadata for access to organizational terms to leverage.
It would be useful for the Approval process to include the ability to Approve/Decline directly in the app notification instead of having to open the Flow app. This is possible today in (for example) email notification on the iphone where the user can select to reply/forward/delete directly from the email notification.
UPDATE:- This appears to be happending intermittently. Sometimes the horizontal scroll bar will appear when required, other times not.
I am currently working on a flow with a few CASE and CONDITION statements. This results in a very horizontally 'wide' flow. There is no horizontal scroll bar showing in my browser (Chrome) making it hard to navigate around the flow. I can successfully scroll horizontally using the arrow keys.
1) When using a workflow to update a SharePoint list item, any selection for a Choice field is deleted during the update. This prohibits building a workflow to update an item with any Choice field. Is there a workaround for this?
2) Update Item in a workflow currently does not allow for Choice field updates. Will this be accounted for soon?
If there is a need to update Sharepoint document library item metadata, the document in the library must be checked out. It will a great benefit if we in a flow can perform check-out and check-in functions in Sharepoint. This will ensure that e.g. user selecting in email with option, that results in updated metadata will be documented in a version.
I am aware of the behavior that the approval Flow can only send an email to the fixed contacts, therefore the users are required to select the user's name who they want to send each time. The destination of email differs for every opportunity so that I hope the feature will be enabled to send an email to the arbitrarily selected users by setting. Thank you for your continued support.
I hope the feature will allow the users to freely update the "Choice" column in the Custom List by using Flow. Below the reference, a workaround is described that the user can be used a simple string field instead.
By the way, we assume that this workaround has a possibility for the inconsistency of data. To avoid this matter, I hope the feature will be improved enables updating to the "Choice" column in the Custom List via Flow in the near future.
So just started working with Flow but see the huge potential. However, it'd be nice to have folders you could group your flows into. Say you made a bunch of Flows for Accounts Payable and several for Logistics, it'd be nice to keep them seperate.
Flow nicely integrates with various email services, I see separate Actions and Triggers for Gmail, Office 365 Outlook, Outlook.com.
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.
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, Box.com) 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.
