Community Corner 20: Spotlight/Ideas


So much useful content in a place filled with users of all experience levels helping one another achieve the same goal; Work Less, Do More. That's probably how I would begin to define my experience here on the Flow community so far. I'm going to continue to dive into a different part of the Flow Community each week to sort of give you a brief rundown of how you can benefit from visiting and engaging with all the different parts of the Flow Community! There's a Community forum board called "The Flow Cookbook". If you haven't checked it out yet, stop reading this and go have a look. It looks a lot like some of our other Community forum boards, except you'll notice that the content posted here is purely for the purpose of sharing and collaborating on your favorite Flow recipes with other community users. Whether you've been working on building a Flow for weeks and you've finally finished with the masterpiece creation that you'd like to share, or you've just made a quick Flow that will save you time and headaches, this is a place where you can share it and it is guaranteed to be seen! This is a great place where users can comment and collaborate on building specific Flows and give kudos for their favorite recipes! Here are a few links to some of the cool recipes that you'll find there:

- Button Flow that sends your location/timestamp to MS Teams

- Convert .CSV Data into JSON Using Flow

- Copy files from a local file server to OneDrive for Business every morning

The most frequently used part of this community is the "Get Help With Microsoft Flow" Community Forum boards. If you have a question relating to pretty much anything that has to do with licensing/administering/using the Flow product, there is going to be someone here who can help you get that question answered. This is what makes a community effective and great. Having a range and diversity of users that will ensure there is always someone who can provide assistance from their experience with the same tasks or issues.
