My favorite feature of the Microsoft Flow mobile app is the buttons feature. Buttons give you the ability to automate personal business processes with one touch. While consulting I am on the go a lot! Being able to automate and simplify things is so convenient when I am in a rush. Here are some examples:
Email: When I am going to be out of the office, I need to send an email to several different people with some standard information. Instead of fiddling around in my inbox trying to find the email and resend it, I touch a button and it sends. Voila!
Calendar Events: Sometimes I need to block off time on my calendar so no one schedules me for a meeting. I have a button for this. Also, if I need to hold an emergency team meeting, I have a generic invite template with all the right people invited and I just press a button and send it!
Logging my work hours: Every consultant knows that tracking time is very important. With one touch on my mobile device I log the time as well as my location into an excel spreadsheet. This way I know what client I am with and the amount of hours.
These are just a few ways I have been using buttons. There are many other templates to meet your individual needs and connect with the services you use most.
