    Creating a custom Microsoft Flow template gallery in SharePoint

    Microsoft Flow is the workflow tool in Office 365 to automate your tasks and business processes, whether your systems are on-premises, in Microsoft’s cloud, or even if they are not part of Microsoft’s catalog. Flow allows you to create templates to help you not recreate the wheel when you are creating your flows and you can even share those flows with others by exporting the templates. Earlier this year I had the opportunity to work with Sarah Haase (Office Apps & Services Microsoft MVP) on an interesting issue: how to share Microsoft Flow templates within an organization without uploading them to the public Flow template gallery. Sarah put together a blog series…
