Hey Everyone!


     Welcome to the first Microsoft Flow Community Corner Blog! I am Gabriel, the newest Community Manager! I am so excited to be a new member of this excellent online community and I am very proud to announce that you can expect an awesome info-packed Community Corner Blog post just like this one, every Friday, from yours truly! In the new Community Corner Blog, you can expect to see anything from updates on newly released Microsoft Flow Connectors to product check-ins with the Flow Product Team, to break-downs of how this great Community Works!

This blog focuses on how using Flow you can automate the process of monitoring incoming emails and create tasks in existing Plans in Planner. The Flow is smart enough to focuses on new emails only and ignore replies.
