Microsoft Flow Tutorial – Instant Vs. Automated Flow

Microsoft Flow Tutorial – Instant Vs. Automated Flow

Microsoft Flow offers five different types of flows, and in this tutorial, we'll explore the Instant and Automated flows, which are the two most frequently used ones. We'll also discuss how to turn off workflows that are no longer needed.

Let's start with the Instant flow, which as the name suggests, executes immediately when triggered. For example, if you want to send an email or create an event in your calendar when a certain action is performed, such as a new file being added to a folder, you can use an Instant flow. It is ideal for situations where actions need to be taken in real-time.

On the other hand, Automated flows are scheduled to run at specific intervals. They are useful when you want to automate a process or task that occurs repeatedly. You can, for instance, automate the process of sending invoices to customers at the end of every week.

It is also worth noting that workflows can be turned off when they are no longer necessary, helping to reduce clutter and simplify your Flows.

Whether you're a seasoned Microsoft Flow user or just starting, understanding the difference between Instant and Automated flows is essential to leverage the power of this tool to automate and streamline your workflows.
