Let's make it like my personal assistant prepares the report and he mails me to my work account, which is very important!! Now, Flow will collect the data from my work mail account and it will connect it to any Service among the 35. Let's say Wunderlist app, and it will provide the message to me, that you have received an important mail from your PA, that this stuff is important.
