What Microsoft Flow can do ?

Hi All,

 

I heared that by Microsoft flow we can do lots of automation with in the Process. 

I am looking for your valuable suggestions on my below mentioned queries if we can achieve this goal by Flow or not?

 

Eg : Basically I wanted to automate a process: where we received resource onboarding request from CPM , we do some manual check and add some more information from Active directory than forward that request to another team to perform.

 

Detail steps : -

 

1) CPM will enter records in Sharepoint form or provide excel which needs to automatically upload in sharepoint list. and submit a request to us. this form contains the information about resource Employee ID/Domain / Rate card/Travel profile etc.... . So here I want to know as soon as CPM submit a request automatic mail should send to CPM and me that request has been successfull submitted and next team have to work on it.

 

2) Now  in 2nd stage : Can flow check the Employee ID and get the information from Active directory like resource office Address / Country / Contact no etc ?

 

3)  In third stage : Can flow add the resources email ID to distribution list ?

 

Also looking for good training references related to my above mentioned query.

Thanks in advance for your valuable suggestions.

 

Regards,

Rajender

You can run your Flow (trigger) when item is created in SharePoint or whena  new row is added in excel

You can use send email action to notify immidiately when item is added

Alos notify your next team via email 

 

2) Now  in 2nd stage : Can flow check the Employee ID and get the information from Active directory like resource office Address / Country / Contact no etc ?

Yes flow can

You can use the Office365Users connector to fetch all details

There arE even connectos available for Azure AD 

 

3)  In third stage : Can flow add the resources email ID to distribution list ?
