Leverage the New "Respond to PowerApps" Action in Flow with Customized Forms

This week I wanted to explain how the new "Respond to PowerApps" action works in Flow. The video below has a basic demo of the new feature, but also demonstrates a practical use case where a customized form button is used to remove the attachments from the list item, and then move them to a Document Library using Flow. In that demo the end user gets feedback from Flow so as to know what files were successfully uploaded for them.

 

I can think of many uses for this new action, for example:

  1. Query Connectors: Get a snippit of information from a connector while running an app, which is similar to what I've done in the video where I'm asking for weather updates from MSN Weather
  2. Provide feedback while running the app, which is similar to my second demo in the video below where we notify the user of what was uploaded after they click the button
  3. Enhance custom API experiences: The sky's the limit which this one as developers think of creative ways to send back outputs from Flow while serving up Custom APIs or Custom Connectors.


 

 

Enjoy!
