Creating a simple Microsoft Flow for a SharePoint list

For anyone using the new style SharePoint lists, there is now a new action for Microsoft Flow integration. It’s a really cool product that integrates all the Office 365 products (and more) into your workflow.

SharePoint Designer workflows still have their place but the Microsoft Flow interface offers rich functionality and is easy to view and structure workflows.

One downside to using Microsoft Flow is the error messages. They come back as error messages from the REST API as headers which can be very confusing for non-technical users. SharePoint Designer errors were much clearer and easy to understand for general users.

In the video below, I go through quickly creating a Microsoft Flow from a new style SharePoint list in an Office 365 group site.

Setting up Azure Connect (DirSync) for Office 365

I’ve made a quick video guide on how to set-up Azure Connect (DirSync) to sync with Office 365. It’s done using a simple demo environment and I suspect that you may find complications and other errors when trying this out in a production live environment. Hopefully this is of use to you (even if it just makes it seem less scary!). I will try to get chance to write up this blog post in more detail rather than just the video at some point in the future.
