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!

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.

Sometimes it's the fun and novel ideas that work the best in Flow and the "Send a Happy Birthday email to employees on their birthday" template is a great example of that. This Flow offers a slight enhancement to that template and demonstrates how I start a Flow from new but re-incorporate parts of what existed in the above template. There is no better way to learn Flow than doing this. Can you spot the parts that are new and are recycled?
