Workflow Supersized in SharePoint 2016
One of the most powerful, yet possibly one of the most underutilized features within SharePoint is workflows. Workflows provide users with the ability to automate complex business processes, saving them both time and effort.

We'll explore flow and what it can mean for not only your SharePoint implementation but also other systems that you work with.
