Trigger one flow from multiple SharePoint lists

This post was inspired by a situation I faced at one of my customers. I was migrating SharePoint 2010 to SharePoint Online and in one site customer had many lists, where users were able to create items. Every time someone created or updated an item, SharePoint Designer workflow was sending them confirmation e-mail. Case was, that the lists were using the same workflow simply replicated per list.

Locked file checking pattern in Power Automate

In SharePoint Online, whenever you create a library and turn on “Require check-out” before editing documents option or not, users are able to open files for collaboration in browsers or in their local Office clients. When they do that, the file is getting locked from access that could lead to its metadata changes. If you create Power Automate flow which purpose is to update file’s metadata or approval status it will end up with failure when trying to do so.

Mentioning in Microsoft Teams via Power Automate

This topic has been continuously raised by multiple people I’ve been talking to. How can a user be mentioned in Microsoft Teams when a message is sent from Power Automate? This issue seemed to never been really possible for us, Power Users, until couple days ago Microsoft released new action in Microsoft Teams set in Power Automate called: “Get @mention token for a user”. It’s even cooler, because it works with Adaptive Cards too!
