Overall Satisfaction with Microsoft Flow

We use Microsoft flow for automating tasks within our processes. As we are using an Office 365 subscription in our office, the flow has helped us a lot from downloading the data from Twitter to publishing it to Power BI. Flow has been a life saver in most of the tasks that I work on.
  • Scheduling the flow- this feature has helped to schedule the flow late into the night, so that the data is ready when you come to the office in the morning.
  • Social Media Triggering: Once of the major use of flow in our company is to trigger an email to us whenever there is a not-so-good review about the brand. As soon as we get a trigger from flow, we work on it.
  • Inbuilt templates have made most of my manual tasks easier such as storing your personal email to OneDrive .etc
  • Third-party add-on connectivity is a bit complex and not as seamless as Microsoft add-ons.
  • Initial setting up the automation flow could be challenging as it involves giving the right passwords, doing the right connections, but after that, things are smooth.
  • Positive: I feel, this tool has created a positive impact. It involved some initial works on setting up, post that we are reaping fruits for using it right. We feel really happy for opting for this tool.
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.
Well Suited: To automate simple to semi-complex tasks without an IT professional. Less appropriate: For automating complex tasks, For tasks that involved lots of third-party add-ons, When your flow involves pulling large amounts of data from a website. This will make the flow timeout at times.
