Once in a while, there are situations where the OOTB features of Dynamics 365's first-party apps simply run out. While Field Service can be a powerful tool to create additional value in a service/maintenance business, it also has its limits. I have previously written about Time Entries in Field Service by using Flow and PSA so let's continue on that path and see how we can enable field technicians to sell more by leveraging the power of the Power Platform.

The qualification or disqualification of a Lead in Dynamics 365 is a human-triggered event that kicks off a predefined process. That process will convert the Lead to a new Contact and Account record and also create an Opportunity that is associated with the Contact and Account. There will also be a link back to the originating lead in the Opportunity record.
Here is what I have come up with as one approach to copy the Notes and attachments to the Opportunity record automatically. You could also approach it differently by changing the regarding on the Notes from the Lead record to the new Opportunity record. Modify it to fit the way your company wants it to work.

How do you take that document that a user sent you, get it into SharePoint or Teams with the proper metadata/properties?

The answer is this quick and easy Flow, which will allow you categorize and move attachments into Document Libraries and add identifying metadata as part of the process. Using the sweep rules in an email inbox, you can manage and sort the emails and attachments in one simple process, and also use sweep rules to clean up the emails as they get stale if you so desire. By using Sweep Rules in combination with folders in Outlook and Document Libraries in SharePoint or (/Office365 Groups or Microsoft Teams), you can be very specific as to how attachments can be sorted and labeled as part of this process.

Hey, Flow Fans!

 

Do you have a folder in your Inbox that receives all of your automated emails from one of the important services that you regularly use? Well, I do too! I get to use an awesome tool to stay ahead of the game with Twitter because I manage the Microsoft Flow Twitter account! This tool sends me an email every time one of my scheduled Tweets goes live. I don't know if you follow the Flow Twitter page, but that's 5 or more Tweets daily that I am alerted about via automated emails! This is why they all get moved to their own folder automatically via an email rule in Outlook. See how I use Flow to stay alerted if one of those automated emails is trying to alert me that a Tweet hasn't posted!!

 

Enjoy!

Hey Flow Fans!

There are MANY ways to do this with Microsoft Flow. I'll show you how I make sure that I know every time my boss sends me an email.
