SharePoint Designer Workflow or Microsoft Flow? eSoftware Associates

Import Data from External Sites – Flow

One of the wonderful features of Microsoft Flow is the ability to connect with a bevy of third party sites, like Twitter and Facebook. The age-old issue of wanting to forward attachments and upload them to SharePoint is resolved with a simple Flow configuration. Additionally, you can connect to Twitter, Blogger, Box, Disqus, and more.

Complex Workflows – SharePoint Designer

As wonderful as Flow is, it still can’t do all that Designer can, and so there are still instances where SharePoint Designer is the clear choice. Flow doesn’t yet modify item-level permissions, as you can in SharePoint Designer 2010 workflows. You can’t call an HTTPS Web Service or perform impersonation steps with Flow, either.
