Automated flows can call any Common Data Service action

Note

These release notes describe functionality that may not have been released yet. To see when this functionality is planned to release, please review What's new and planned for Microsoft Flow. Delivery timelines and projected functionality may change or may not ship (see Microsoft policy).

As a part of reaching parity with the Common Data Service Workflows, automated flows can now call all actions that are available in Common Data Service. This includes everything from fulfilling a sales order to exporting an Excel file. Actions represent operations that might have side effects in the database, such as creating or updating records. An Action might require parameters and might return a value, and can be associated with certain records.
