Hi all,

 

Scenario: I create a Flow and assign other owners to it. This will create a Team Flow. 6months down the line I leave the company and my O365 account get deleted. What happens with this Flow? Will this Flow be deleted or is it still editable by the other owners?

My understanding is that the Flow can still be editable by other owners
This is correct.

@Davy Loose this is an excellent question (still) and it would be great to get more info about this.

Say you are a co-owner, and remove yourself, will the flow exist forever? Who can cleanup orphan flows? If you delete the original owner, what kind of remainders will there be, a name, an email address? This is eventually GDPR.
