For example this can happen whenever you are using a Action that 'Lists' items, folders, fields, etc.

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.

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 wondered if that would be possible using only tools from Office 365/ Azure environment. And the answer was… yes!
