Common Data Service Dynamics 365 Power Automate Power Platform

Assign work to your Team at the Press of a Button

For a little bit of Extra fun I decided to extend my previous “Get Next” post, with a tiny bit of IoT goodness.

In my previous post (Power Automate out of Cherry-Picking) I covered how to use Power Automate to Get the Next available Task and put it in your queue.

For a little bit of Extra fun I decided to extend it slightly, with a tiny bit of IoT goodness.

Using an ESP8266 Microchip, Wemos Button Shield and Arduino (with some code shared by my colleague from my former MVP days, Rami Mounla (https://github.com/ramimounla/Flow_Button)

I added a step to the flow to send a mobile push notification to the Power Automate mobile app, letting the user know when they have a new work item

And I programmed the ESP8266 to call the Flow HTTP URL, much like the Custom Action I created in Dynamics 365 in the previous post.

Hope you enjoy the little bit of IoT fun!!!
