Flow is a service that was designed by Microsoft to allow users with no coding experience to create automated workflows between over 140 different applications. These automated workflows or ‘Flow Apps’ opens the door to unlimited automatons and integrations.

The most popular automatons and integrations are:

  • Receive internal or send external notifications
