How does it work?

In the operation of Microsoft Flow the most important thing is the connectors. Each connector or application has three important elements:

  • Triggers : They are those that start the workflow. For example, "when the file is uploaded to SharePoint" or "when an email is sent." At the very least, a connector has to have a trigger, otherwise the flow won't work.

  • Actions: Once the flow is executed, we must choose the actions to be carried out. For example, when someone sends us an email from a certain address, I want Microsoft Flow to «save the document to a certain  SharePoint ».

  • Connections: We cannot forget that when we want to connect two applications, Microsoft Flow will ask us for your credentials (username and password) of each application that we want to use.

How do you start a workflow?

Once the flow is done, we will have it ready to go.

The first thing we have to do is activate it, if for example one day we are not interested in the flow working we can deactivate it without problems.

When activating the flow, it is only necessary to run the chosen trigger in the flow for the flow to run.

This means that whenever the trigger is executed, the flow will be executed.
