This was a big week for Microsoft Flow. Flow team announced several new updates for Flow service and Flow buttons and more. Users were able to use buttons to trigger flows on demand, gather user inputs (such as text, or dropdown of values), and more. With this week’s update, users can create or run buttons which support image uploading. For example, you can use a button to send a capture of the whiteboard the all meeting attendees. Buttons on the mobile phone now remembers user’s recent inputs for quick triggering. Also, the mobile app has a much improved first-run experience, including the ability to seamlessly sign-in to Microsoft Account without requiring users to re-enter your credentials.
