Microsoft today announced major advancements to Flow’s approval processes management. Microsoft Flow’s modern approval workflows can be used to set up an automated workflow to quickly process requests for vacation, overtime, or travel plans or for documents like budgets, or specifications. Flow now allows you to easily create an approval workflow for your data in SharePoint, Dynamics CRM, Twitter, Visual Studio Team Services, MailChimp and many others. Also, the approvers will receive email notifications about pending approvals, and they can view and respond to all approval requests in the new unified approvals center. This new feature can be a godsend for SMBs who do not have the legacy line-of-business systems that do the same job.
- Create an approval process in seconds. Rich templates and a streamlined design experience make it possible for any user to quickly configure an approval process. These approvals now are securely authenticated using Azure Active Directory, and support full customization with the Microsoft Flow designer.
- Keep business running smoothly with approvals everywhere needed. Flow now offers a smooth mobile experience for approving or rejecting requests on the go. Requesters and approvers will have a consolidated web view of everything they need to act on and can see their full approval history. Even better, actions surface directly in other Microsoft products like Outlook, so users can complete key approval tasks without ever leaving their inbox.
