Provide a real method of organizing Flows

Currently, we cannot sort nor organize flows in any way I could find. It makes flows very difficult to manage.
Thank you.

The idea of having a way of organizing flows has already been submitted and closed as "completed" (read link:

Unfortunately, the solution provided does not seem to answer the community needs, therefore I am reopening it again.

I comment this on the previous thread too.

 

Features like sort or filter wouldn't be something that they would be able to build easily due to the paging nature of the API.  This is an honest, external feedback from understanding the APIs - it won't be something they can tackle when ranked against other big road map items, e.g. move personal Flows into Solutions is what I'd consider a big strategic feature.

 

In the meantime, I build https://flowstudio.app to provide some immediate relief for Flow makers dealing with a lot of existing personal (or team) Flows.  Flow Studio takes the path of reading everything up front, then sorts a grid for us.  Flow Studio is used by 1300 users.

I have kept sort, filter and #hashtag grouping as free features that requires no subscription because of these thread.

 

Flow Studio's subscription tier is advanced tools for monitoring, run-as admin and Flow migration.

Not everyone has CDS or a Plan license, so are we only completing requests for the premium users now?!

Add folders or something to group Flows how we need them.

Please no folders... don't force a flow to only live in 1 location since a flow or sub-flow can be part of many business processes at once. Allow tagging instead.   

 

and to protect me from going insane....

 

1. allow sorting and filtering ASAP.  Clicking any column header in the flow list should sort ascending.

2. Allow indexing/searching of ALL actions INSIDE the flow itself. With hundreds of flows, I need the ability to find a "keyword" I might be using in the comments or in an email of any actions.

We need the ability to Order the flow List by Name and not just defaulted to Modified Desc

+ Need the ability to Organise Flows into folders etc. as per above Idea

Totally agree, the "Solution" solution is anything but fullfilling user needs.

Give the possibility to add columns to the Flow overview incl. views with grouping like in SharePoint

Advocate II

Very frustrating they believe this is "completed"... we have so so many flows that need some sort of grouping method!

 

please hurry up ms....

I recently discovered the "Solutions" functionality and got pretty excited about it only to discover, like others here, that it literally doesn't work with Flows that have SharePoint connectors in them. I know that Flow isn't JUST for SharePoint, but I'm willing to bet a huge constituency of Flow users use it with SharePoint and would appreicate a way to organize their flows (myself included in that). Even something as simple as a tagging system would be better than literally nothing. About the best I can do right now is make sure I use consistent naming for flows that deal with the same thing, then use the search box at the top to limit the list of flows to things that match my search terms, but that's hardly a way of "organizing" Flows.

I circle back on this thread from time to time.

Not having SharePoint connected flows in Solutions is a huge bummer for organizing flows. Wish Microsoft hadn't closed the old idea and forcing for new idea to be started fresh.

 

Please implement this, we need some way to organize a huge list of flows.
