Very interesting question.. let us first understand the background of what is all 3 about.
MSFlow - To Automate a business process we generally use workflows. Ms flow are alternative to workflows. Before MS flow, Sharepoint designer workflow was used for simple things but for complex things you had to rely on custom workflow(visual studio) or any third ...
It is now possible to manage SharePoint permissions in Microsoft Flow with the help of Plumsail SharePoint (Third-party connector), which is a part of Plumsail Actions product with a fair price.
There is an action, called Change Permissions that gives you the ability to:
Grant Permissions on Site
Remove Permissions from Site
Remove All Permissions from ...
Through auditing, SharePoint can track file downloads. But auditing is a report rather than a real time trigger. I'm not sure you can catch the event in real time, if that's necessary?!
Check out Logging people who download files in SharePoint.
MS Flow doesnt seem to allow you accomplish this at the moment - I came across this scenario as well.
You may be able to do it if you set up your flow using the Logic Apps in Azure
You will need an azure subscription to create an app
Follow the steps below, I assume your list structure is as below
So you can follow below steps to get the email template from List.
I have used Get Items Action assuming you will have to fetch email template dynamically. you can replace Filter query OR make it more dynamic using variable. If its not dynamic then you can also use Get Item action instead of ...
As far as I know breaking the item level permission in Flow and assigning a new one is not possible. In the SharePoint action - Update Item there is no option to change the privileges of the list item which you are editing.
One of the actions is sharepoint: update list item. It will ask for the id of the list item, just use the id of the item from a previous step.
Be careful though, this action is a PITA: if your list has 20 fields, all 20 fields will be added in the designer. choice fields will have their default values set, so you'll need to go through and clear those as to ...
SharePoint online sites within office 365 have got two versions I would say:
Modern experience (Latest)
The one you are seeing in the blog is from Modern experience. Classic lists/libraries do not have option of flows internally. You need to change it to modern experience. Process for switching to modern experience is:
-> Click on the ...
Export a Flow:
click on ellipsis "..." menu, select 'Export' then click on 'Package (.zip)'
provide a name and a description for your package and configure other options
click on the "Export" button in the bottom right corner your package should start downloading shortly after (or click "Download" button)
Import a Flow:
click on the import button in ...
I found the problem, the create item is in the "Apply to each 2", when I removed it it worked fine. I guess the reason was copying it from the update item. Because when I created the "update item", flow puts it in "apply to each", so when I copied it to "yes", "Apply to each" was also copied, while it should not be. However, I am sure I will be corrected if ...
Yes, we could do that using Microsoft Flow, SharePoint designer workflow or Nintex workflow.
Follow the below steps:
Below are the good reference articles:
Send email with attachment from SharePoint list when condition is met
Send list Item attachment as email attachment using flow
For HTML column formatting in the Microsoft Flow, refer ...
There was no such functionality to import/export flows or any other backup option previously.
But you can configure Data Loss Prevention (DLP) policies as shown here for prevention.
As per @SP Combatant's answer now you can import and export the flows:
Export a Flow:
click on ellipsis "..." menu, select 'Export' then click on 'Package
It turns out that currently this can only be done in "advanced mode".
Enter this formula:
Note that this is not the same as you tried (true), since writing "true" in Basic mode puts the string in the formula, instead of the bool value true.
As a short answer: Yes, It's possible.
Microsoft Flow is a public cloud service only. However, you can securely connect to your own on-premises services through the on-premises data gateway.
The supported data sources are:

Yes this can be done using flow with below steps.
Add trigger for item modified.
Add action to get item from same list with item ID returned as dynamic output of step 1.
Add condition check the field value.
Add action to send E-Mail.
Workflow triggers always run once event is already occurred it will not wait til item is approved or anything. If you triggering point is item deleted, it does trigger MS flow(just tried this) but it won't anything for status as you trigger is when item is deleted. If you want to handle situation than item is deleted when it is only approved. you should ...
As long as you have clear understanding on what DAY means, below solution can be applied. If your users are geographically distributed around world, it can get tricky, so please take with pinch of salt.
Write schedule based Flow - https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/flow/run-scheduled-tasks
This flow can Update item to a config list every night say 1AM
If your flow is running on an automated trigger then it will always run in the context of an owner of flow (Who created the flow).
So that is who shows up in Modified By field in your SharePoint list.
However the manually triggered flows, like the ones that start with a button in a PowerApp runs in the context of the user who presses the button.
So, if you are referencing a value from the Flow Trigger inside your Flow, that value will not change until the next time the Flow runs. If you hover over one of your references, you will see that the expression it is using is something like triggerBody()?['MyAssignedToField'] -- the values from the triggerBody do not change during the course of the Flow. ...
As per the last answer: Workflows always run "after" the event.
You could, however, use remote event receivers. If you use SPRemoteEventType.ItemDeleting you will get notified before the event is processed (i.e. before the item is really "gone"). You could create a flow with a http-request-trigger (it's "premium", though) to process the event.
Ok, managed to make it work. What I did is instead of Get Items, I used the Get Item action, removed the filtering action and input that into the Get Item action itself, to compare the ID of the item in the first list with the copied item in the second list and based on that to update.

The flow can be tested by adding a list and creating a flow by
clicking Flow from the Menu

Unfortunately, it don't support HTTPS, it's a clear statement
Microsoft SharePoint data gateways only support HTTP traffic; they do
not support HTTPS traffic
Meanwhile, I think extending the web application may be overcome this issue:
When the web application is extended, a different Web Application and IIS are created So you can use HTTP ...
I found by changing:

You won't be able to use a Flow to query or terminate another Flow
You'll instead need to drive your Flow by using informative custom columns in your affected list or library - for example, "Workflow Status" - and build conditions in your Flow that inspect these values to determine whether to proceed or not.
For example, we could setup a list with a ...
Although i haven't tried this but i have something in my mind that may help you.
What you can do is create a column with name Flag. Whenever a flow gets triggered on item ,set a condition such that the flag gets set to value False.
If the flow gets completed set the column value to True.
Now the condition when you trigger flow for any item in share point ...
