Community Corner 17: Flow Updates/Community Roundup/Ideas

Flow Updates

If you stay up-to-date with the Microsoft Flow Product Blog, then you'll probably be aware of some of the information within this section of the article. However even if you've read all the blog articles, this should still be a nice round-up of the important info from the blog recently!

There's a blog article published by Microsoft Flow Principle Program Manager, Kent Weare, that introduces Power Platform Admin Analytics and explains that it will be a feature of the new Power Platform Admin Center (Click Here to Read it!). If you're unfamiliar with what this means, CLICK HERE to read more about the Power Platform Admin Center. This new feature will give our customers a look into how their administrations are using Microsoft Flow and allow quick access to insights that will enable them to provide governance and change management services to their users. A Flow Plan 2 License is required to access the preview of this release.

Here are just a few of the screenshots from Kent's Article:


A couple more great articles were written by another Flow Team member, Stephen Siciliano (Principal Group PM Manager), regarding the recent Flow Community redesign, Flow Support Improvements, SharePoint & Teams Flow Connector Improvements, and finally details on the October 2018 Update!

I'm sure you're aware of the Community redesign if you are here reading this article! So please, reach out to me with your feedback on how you are liking the new look and placement of things. I hope it wasn't too much of a change for all of you guys and gals! I know I am loving the new look and easier access abilities!
