When you think of Microsoft Flow you probably think of it in the way that it is marketed, a "low-code" tool that enables power users to build automated workflows. Well, as a SharePoint developer you can use Flow for so much more. Flow can be a service layer; it can enable you to elevate permission even when being called from client-side code; and best of all, every Office 365 tenant can make several thousand Flow calls per month without incurring any additional charges. In this demo-heavy session, you'll see how you can add Microsoft Flow to the set of tools in your developer tool belt. Please note that this session assumes you are already familiar with how to build simple Flows.

You will learn:

  • How to make SharePoint REST API calls in Flow
  • How to handle errors in a Flow
  • How to modularize your Flows
