    Go with the Flow: Microsoft Flow Actions and Templates

    Microsoft is really working to help all of us streamline the way we work. They have been working on an application called Flow. According to Microsoft's own documentation about Flow this is what they have to say:

    "Welcome! Microsoft Flow is a preview product to help you set up automated workflows between your favorite apps and services to synchronize files, get notifications, collect data, and more."

    It's a pretty cool little engine that can, and if you have the ability to get access to the preview I would suggest taking a look. However, if you can't, and are curious about what all you can do with Flow right now, below is a list of the actions and templates that are available to start a Flow from (as of 5/10/2016):
