Microsoft Flow

Microsoft Flow is a cloud-based service. It allows us to react to an event in one service and do something with the data from that event into another service. The users can build workflows that automatically does some business tasks and processes across applications and services.

It helps us to monitor all our workflow with the help of a great cloud solution called “Microsoft Flow”. Before reading this article, please go through some important articles mentioned below.

Box

Box is a cloud computing business service which provides file-sharing, collaborating, and other tools for working with files that are uploaded to its servers. Users can determine how their content can be shared with other users. Users may invite others to view and/or edit an account's shared files, upload documents and photos to a shared files folder (and thus share those documents outside Box), and give other users rights to view shared files.

OneDrive

OneDrive is a file-hosting service operated by Microsoft as part of its suite of online services. It allows the users to store files as well as other personal data like Windows Settings or BitLocker recovery keys in the cloud. Files can be synced to a PC and accessed from a web browser or a mobile device, as well as shared publicly or with specific people. Log into OneDrive from here.
