Microsoft Flow, a tool similar to IFTTT that lets you set up automated workflows between your favorite apps and services became generally available two months ago. The cloud-based app now supports more than 80 different services, as the team announced yesterday six new additions:
- Buffer - Buffer is a social media management for marketers and agencies. Access your pending and sent updates, social media profiles, and more.
- Google Contacts - Google Contacts is an online address book, integrated across your Google products and more.
- Harvest - Harvest is a simple tool to help track the time spent by your team on each project and task.
- Medium - Medium is a vibrant network of thinkers who care about the world and making it better. Connect to your Medium account to track new publications, write stories and more.
- MSN Weather - MSN Weather gets you the very latest weather forecast, including temperature, humidity, precipitation for your location.
- Typeform - Build beautiful, engaging, and conversational online forms, surveys, quizzes, landing pages, and much more with Typeform.
Additionally, it’s now possible to run scheduled triggers on-demand with the tap of a button. To do it, go to the "My Flows" list and the "Run now" button will appear after selecting the "..." menu. Be aware that the option will only work with flows that have the Recurrence trigger.
Flow is already pretty versatile tool, and the increasing list of supported services should make it a more attractive option for both consumers and professionals. If you didn’t try it yet, we invite you to read our previous tutorial to help you get started.
