The Common Data Model has a lot of benefits for Small Business Owners. However Small Business Owners do not have the time to "reinvent the wheel" when it comes to establishing apps, data relationships and automations which Microsoft Common Data Service would require. As a result Small Business Owners are forced to choose from marketplace of already established Apps. Luckily Microsoft Flow can provide the benefits of both worlds but enabling a Common Data Model approach to existing Apps in the marketplace.
In this article, I will show you how to use Microsoft Flow, PowerApps and Kaizala to automate end-to-end business processes for daily operations. We will look at a logistics management use case wherein we will see how to automate an item pickup and delivery management process.
Netdocuments is a document management system. I had a requirement where any time a document gets created in SharePoint we need to create a Folder in Netdocuments and move that file from SharePoint to that newly created folder in Netdocuments. Following Flow, will also go over steps of parsing XML file with Xpath. Enjoy!
In this post, I will show you how to detect duplicate records/ items in Dynamics 365 CRM/ CDS/ SharePoint, delete the record/ item and send a list of deleted records/ items as an email attachment. We will look at finding duplicate entries based on specific fields/ columns (specific values on these fields/ columns), deleting those and sending an email with the list of deleted records/ items.
One of the most universal pieces of any company website is the “Contact Us” page. There are countless ways this is handled. At the simplest it can just open a mailto link. Sometimes there’s an inline form of some sort that feeds into some app somewhere. A lot of times it will require someone along the process to take the data from that form and copy/paste it into the whatever Customer Relationship Management system the company uses.
Keeping management upto date with a project progress can be done using Project Online and Flow. In this Flow we will send an email containing details of late tasks and tasks due in the next seven days.
The only trigger built-in in Microsoft Flow for Twitter is “When a new tweet is posted”. However, the list of events available in Twitter API account activity documentation is muchwider, built of 19 options. But how to get to them?
I was also inspired by a use case, that is allowing to post a thank you tweet once user is followed by another user. That solution was however using Zapier and Buffer online solutions. I wondered if that would be possible using only tools from Office 365/ Azure environment. And the answer was… yes!

I am running my own company for years. Every month I need to gather all cost bills and invoices (really 95% of them are sent via mail), put them in a single e-mail and send to my accountant. Previously every such e-mail I received, I had to flag, then copy its attachment to a draft mail that was sent by the end of month to my accountant. Manually it was a significant amount of work!

Azure Key Vault is a resource for storing and accessing secrets, key and certificates. But if a company need to have a rotation for these identifications? Azure key Vault has the possibility to enable key rotation and auditing, but this needs to be configured and is not a default feature. For those identifications, some specific value items can be used to build a lifecycle process.
In this first part, a concept solution will be provided to detect the expiration date of a secret or key and to inform the IT department or owner of this key.
This blog walks you through step-by-step on how to build your own Facebook custom connector. You will need a minimum of Flow or PowerApps plan 1. The existing Facebook connector works only for those who created the connection prior to when Facebook made changes on their side.

Everyone who has experimented with Google voice dialogs might experience that there is no out of the box way to connect the Google dialogs with automation software. There are a lot of programming opportunities in Dialogflow, but building a automation solution without coding seems to be difficult.
I took the challenge to connect Dialogflow with Microsoft Flow. From there, it is easy to build a solution that interacts with data or other functionalities. For example; make through your Google Home a reservation in a restaurant, get information about the latest support call or send a white paper that is requested in the voice dialog. That could all be possible if the voice dialog could be connected to Microsoft Flow automation software.
The Common Data Service (CDS) has the possibility to add attachments to a record of a entity when using an canvas app. You could have the use case that you want to copy such attachments to SharePoint Online too. This blog post shows you how to do this.
A watermark that states "Confidential" or "For internal use only" can be a reminder to others about how they should be handling the document. For example, people who have access to a document may be more conscious of leaving it open on their computer screen while they walk away from it if it states "Confidential".
