Microsoft Flow is highly effective to those individualized work environments for those who have the flexibility to customize their processes. While the O365 suite is often available as a whole, in some environments such as campus life or education areas I could see this being less effective. This product is definitely geared for the office/business enterprise environment.
- Approval workflows, it makes getting approvals in a succinct order very easy and Flow does this in spades
- Starting a workflow based on a certain "trigger" . Having workflows start when you want them to is far and away one Microsoft Flow's strengths.
- Allthe different outside services you can interface with. It really is a impressive list. From Dropbox to Wunderlist, really amazing

- Microsoft flow could be made a little simpler for unexperienced folks - general users. I feel what I want it to do in my head is very simple, but the flow steps are not as intuitive even though I understand the logic once it's laid out, although the templates are helpful.
- I wish there were more templates, and there are older flow features that are no longer supported. I often find myself searching forums for a solution that comes to find out is no longer supported, and my flow ends up requiring more steps or is impossible.
- I understand flow has seminars and workshops, lots of tutorials, but it seems like I'm always trying to achieve some unique task. It would be nice to have a support agent that can help program your flows if they are not available already as a template.

- Microsoft Flow does a great job at automation.
- Repetitive Microsoft Flow can save a lot of time; eliminates repetitive and monotonous things.
- Microsoft Flow has a lot of ways it can integrate into other Microsoft programs.
We thought of Zapier on the other hand, but what made us to chose Flow is mainly its seamless connectivity with Microsoft products and all the existing relationship what we had with Microsoft.

Return on Investment
- It has pushed some degree of user support to the users who are closest to their own processes, and has allowed the burden of support to shift from ONLY IT to business groups for us.
- There is a better chance for us to get support with a Microsoft product internally than anything else (Nintex, Oracle, SAP, etc...) because of our license agreement.
- Time will tell how well Flow allows us to re-create the environment we had with on-prem Nintex and SharePoint 2016. It appears that it could, but it is too early to tell how easy adoption of a slightly more technically complex tool will be for our operating company, sister operating companies, and parent company.
