Automate with Microsoft Flow

Microsoft Flow allows you to receive push and email notifications, create automated workflows and hook up multiple services like Trello, Basecamp, Google Sheets, Excel and more for data manipulation and notifications.
You can also chain events and set up custom logic.

Our implementation of Microsoft Flow uses HTTP connector, which is a Premium Connector. It requires you to have a Flow subscription.

Please check with your IT department on whether your organization already has one.

First, go to Microsoft Flow website and register if you don't have Microsoft account yet.

BG Renderer Max Template

We've created a sample BG Renderer Max flow template for your convenience.
It also adds the Dynamic Content so you can customize the notifications text with Composition name, Path, and other variables.

Download the Sample Template and go to My flows

Click on Import and upload the zip file.
Flow Import
Back in the My flows tab you will now have a sample Flow that you can easily modify. Just leave the first step intact.

Now you will have tags with variables you can use to format your messages.

CompName, FilePath, FPS, and RenderDuration are available at the moment. We are going to add more as the development progresses.
