How to make an outlook flow without signing up for trial?


Is outlook 365 connector a premium service? If not, why cant I make a flow without making a premium trial? I have office 365 ED tennant, E3 I think. I can go to flows and try to create one, but it asks to make a trial premium account, which I dont want to do. No other way seems to exist to make an outlook flow (i want to make flow from outlook group calendar to excel sheet)

Hi @davetqm,


Outlook 365 connector is an integrated service in microsoft flow,if you have a subscription of microsoft flow,you will able to use the connector.


Do you want to create a outlook flow and don't want to sign up for flow trial?


As is mentioned in the flow pricing:


Office 365 Enterprise E3 plans includes Microsoft Flow,if you have a office 365 E3 tenant as you mentioned, you could sign in microsoft flow with your office 365 account without sign up for flow trial.


Best regards,


Hi Alice
Yes I signed in no problem. But when select the outlook connector it asks me to start a trial. If I cancel I go back to select connector option. No way to start making a flow that I can see. I am logged in as my office 365 ED account admin.

Hi @davetqm,


Do you able to select other connectors except outlook?

Could you please take a try to start the trial to see if you would able to select the outlook connector?


Best regards,


No I cant use any connector.

I prefer to not start a free trial but to use my existing basic account. Because I might want to try premium features later and can use the free trial then.

Am I the only person having this issue? Does everyone have to start a free trial before they can use with their office 365 account?
