Interaction with Office 365 Groups

It would be great to be able to automate some tasks within O365 Groups. I would like to create a button flow that would create a new group and automatically copy some template documents into the SharePoint document list. Not sure if these would be Outlook or SharePoint or a whole new "Groups" category.

Some possible triggers:

  • When a new group is created
  • When a new message is sent to the conversation
  • When a member joins/leaves the group
  • When files are created/modified in the group 
  • When calendar events are created/modified in the group calendar

Possible Actions:

  • Create a new Group
  • Add/remove members from the group
  • Create events in the group calendar
  • Copy files to/from the group documents
Status: Completed

You can now connect to Office 365 groups, you can read more about it here: https://flow.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/q3-2017-update/

Flow currently work with User Calendar but not work with Office 365 Group Calendar. With Office 365 Group being a great new feature, would be a useful feature to consider to incorporate Office 365 Group in Flow in future release.

This would be an awesome feature for me. It would allow me to keep O365 lists in sync with other lists and pages around the site.

I would also like to see this functionality. We are evaluating flow right now and our first real attempt at a flow was to create an Office 365 Group calendar event.

I recently discovered O365 Groups and love them.  A nice Flow would be the ability to atomatically notify IT to provide permisions to a network folder, or to install a specific application when a new user is added to a Group. 

 

i.e.  I manage our CAD Software, I have a User Group created where I share blog posts, videos and schedule training. It would me awesome if everytime I add a User:

An Email goes out to ITSupport@company.com to request access to Z:/CAD Users.  And to create a Ticket to install Solidworks on their machine

I have been able to configure Microsoft Flow to copy an attachment sent to my O365 Outlook email address into a OneDrive for Business Folder successfully. However, I would like to have the Flow operate on the O365 Outlook group email. I haven't been able to find a connector that allows me to browse the files sent to the O365 Outlook group email folders. I have googled and searched the Flow templates and Actions.

 

Thank you.

I agree, posting so I can see updates.

As an admin, when a new user is created and license assigned, other actions should be able to happen automatically.

Definitely expecting this feature firmly.
Would be really useful to send notifications/reminders to another calendar or app like Slack.

We'd only need a way to access the group/shared calendar ID apparently...

Agree, would like to be able to start a flow when a new conversation is started or when there is a response to a conversation.
