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 do 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”.

We can track Facebook wall messages and convert those into Audio to store in OneDrive automatically.

Facebook

Facebook is a social networking website and service where users can post comments, share photographs and links to news or other interesting content on the web, play games, chat live, and even stream live videos. Shared content can be made publicly accessible, or it can be shared only among a select group of friends or family, or with a single person. Login here.

OneDrive

OneDrive is a file-hosting service operated by Microsoft as part of its suite of online services. It allows 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. Login here.
