An introduction to Microsoft Flow / Power Automate in Nexus365
Use automation with caution!
Any loss of data resulting from misuse is the responsibility of the Flow owner, we cannot offer troubleshooting advice on individual Flow instances nor offer recovery on data lost as a result of bulk Flow operations. If your Flow deals with bulk records, make sure you test it on a smaller or less critical subset of information before publishing something that could delete or remove content permanently!
Microsoft Flow, now rebranded as Microsoft Power Automate, is a powerful automation system built to work across the suite of Nexus365 programs such as OneDrive for Business, Teams, email and SharePoint Online. The System is still commonly known as Flow and is referred to as this below.
Flow allows you to set up triggers, actions and connectors to automate various processes in Nexus365 in a similar way to Workflows in the current on-premises Sharepoint service, using a simple cross-browser-compatible design package that's intuitive and easy to use, with full error checking and Flow runtime history.
