Is there any reference documentation for how to use Flow?  I've seen lots of videos, but no real reference documentation.

 

For example, there is an Excel Insert Row task which takes a Spreadsheet and a Worksheet name.  I couldn't initially understand how to format the values that will get inserted into the row.

 

Where can people go to learn more about working with specific Actions and Triggers?

All Flow documentation can be found in the Microsoft Flow site: https://flow.microsoft.com/en-us/. Here you will find:
- Flow templates you can use as starting point for your Flows: https://flow.microsoft.com/en-us/templates/
- List of services you can connect with in Flow: https://flow.microsoft.com/en-us/services/. If you click on a specific service, you will get templates ready to use that connects with that service: https://flow.microsoft.com/en-us/services/shared_dynamicscrmonline/dynamics-365/
- All Flow reference documentation is also here: https://flow.microsoft.com/en-us/documentation/getting-started/
- Microsoft Flow Community: https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Microsoft-Flow-Community/ct-p/FlowCommunity

Thanks but none of that is the documentation we need though. We're looking for docs along the caliber of a TechNet or MSDN article. These are simply 'Getting Started' and 'FAQ' type docs for end users. I need something that outlines the exact syntax of the services/connection so when I'm building advanced Flows I know exactly what I can and can't do.

Hey Paul,

 

Not sure if you figured it out, but was this what you were looking for?: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/logic-apps/logic-apps-workflow-definition-language 

 

There is also a link to the triggers for flow on the navigation on the left, but here is a link to that as well: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/logic-apps/logic-apps-workflow-actions-triggers

Could not agree more with Darren's sentiment. Trying to create flows, and what actions to use to achieve an outcome seems very difficult given the level of documentation. Today I added a "Set Variable" action, where is the documentation for this action?
