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.

Sometimes there’s an inline form of some sort that feeds into some app somewhere. A lot of times it will require someone along the process to take the data from that form and copy/paste it into the whatever Customer Relationship Management system the company uses.

The only trigger built-in in Microsoft Flow for Twitter is “When a new tweet is posted”. However, the list of events available in Twitter API account activity documentation is much wider, built of 19 options. But how to get to them?

I was also inspired by a use case, that is allowing to post a thank you tweet once user is followed by another user. That solution was however using Zapier and Buffer online solutions. I wondered if that would be possible using only tools from Office 365/ Azure environment. And the answer was… yes!

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.
