Tip #944: Flow just got more expressive

Just as we learned that Flow users now have a graduation path to the Logic Apps, the team has released another awesome feature blurring the gap between the two.

Flow now has Expression tab that allows some data manipulation as part of an Action. Simplest scenarios include date and string manipulations; thrill seakers can self-inflict some pain with xml() and xpath() expressions.

If you’ve been using Yaml specs as your bedtime reading, you might also enjoy the torture of the formal schema which Flow, unsurprisingly, shares with borrows from Logic Apps.
