Hello,

I think flow and powerapps can be really great tools within a business to utilize. Although it seems quiet straightforward to use when you watch a demo from ignite, it's rather complicated when you try it yourself for the first time.

Interesting, not seeing this option in my tenants!

This summer, we've made a number of small updates to the business apps capabilities in SharePoint and OneDrive for the PowerApps/Flow connector and calculated fields.  Learn more over on the SharePoint blog.

Hi,

I like to build a flow. The flow must create a SharePoint online calendar item when an outlook invitation email is received in the mailbox.

Is there a way to email a SharePoint Group from a Flow? (not an O365 Group, not an AD group, but a legit SharePoint group)

 

Or do I have to define and maintain an actual Distribution Group for flow to send to?

Hi all,

 

If you've tried to create a PowerApp that filters or searches on a choice field in a SharePoint list, you may have found that it doesn't work. This is because today, PowerApps expects the filtered/searched fields to be text fields.

In the Flow FAQ it states:

 

Can I share the flows I create?

You can share flows in either of these ways:

  • You can add co-workers or groups in your organization as owners on your flows, so they can also edit and manage the flow.
