Introduction to Adaptive Cards

Adaptive Cards

Some time ago a customer asked me about a more effective user experience when approving tasks in workflows. The reason was that a manager, who was always involved at some time, was on the position, that if he is just sent an e-mail with approval request, this e-mail is going to simply get lost in his inbox and therefore he wouldn’t be able to respond. On the other hand he is using Microsoft Teams often, so asked if he can be notified about a task approval via that app.

Discovering suspended workflows with Microsoft Flow

In my daily work over business processes in Office 365, specifically in SharePoint Online, one thing annoys me the most – namely the lack of mechanisms to inform me that the workflow has hung up – that it is in a “Suspended” state.
