Automate the repetitive task if you have a OneDrive folder full of templated resumes and you want to copy each candidate’s name and contact from a well-defined field to an Excel file. First, create a flow that automatically goes through every resume in the folder. Next, add UI flows to your primary flow to record the steps you usually take to transfer data between the two types of files. Finally, run the flow to copy data from Word to Excel for every resume in your OneDrive folder automatically. This is an example to demonstrate the recording experience between two different types of files.

On 21st August 2019 Microsoft announced that actions in Microsoft Flow from Outlook stack, are going to be moved from using Outlook REST API v1.0 to Microsoft Graph v1.0. Along with that information there was also written, that current Outlook API 1.0 is going to be decommissioned in 1st of November 2019. So after that date all old actions in Microsoft Flow are going to be removed too.

There would be nothing wrong with this transition, moreover – it is motivated by important arguments, however together with positive aspects it has one, significant negative issue: total size of the message sent to Microsoft Graph v1.0 API and the size of each attachment cannot exceed 4MB. That means – large attachments simply cannot be sent from Flow anymore.

A unique code is generated once the request is processed and the customer can track their request by entering this code and their email address.

In this article, I will show you how to setup the flow configuration to delete files older than ‘X’ days from OneDrive. This looks like an easy task by simply listing the entire folder and set a condition to check the modified date and delete the older files. The catch here is, the List Folder action on OneDrive gets you 20 items only. There is no way (pagination settings are not working either) to get more than 20 items.

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.
