Flow app in SharePoint Office 365
Services:   
Now Microsoft Flow supporting 90 services. SharePoint, OneDrive for Business, Dynamics 365, OneDrive, SQL Server..Reference: https://flow.microsoft.com/en-us/services/             
New Features:
 Search by service
Users will be able to see all the triggers from a service by simply selecting that service. Also, once a trigger is selected, the same process can be done to add an action, as can be seen in the following screenshots.




Switch Case
It is an important addition to the already available nested conditionals support, and it "will make it very easy to have parallel branches of conditional logic based on a single value".
You can find switch by selecting the More … option after selecting New Step and then choosing Add a Switch Case. Inside a Switch Case you will select a value from the trigger or a previous step to switch on.
Office 365 and Outlook.com services
Trigger when an email is flagged – for example, you can now automatically create a task in Todoist (or Wunderlist) whenever you flag an email in Outlook
Flag an email as an action – create filters to flag emails – for example, automatically flag emails that come from your manager
Move an email to another folder – you can also automatically move emails between folders
Connect to Local or Network File Systems and Stripe
Flow can now connect to your Local File System or a Network File System. You can log or copy files from your own local Windows desktop PC to the cloud. Likewise, if you have a team Network Share, you can connect to that from Microsoft Flow.
Finally added four other Premium services: 



You can now use Stripe from Microsoft Flow. Stripe allows private individuals and businesses to accept payments over the internet. You can track customers, orders, invoices  and more. 

 Microsoft Flow integrates with Informix and DB2 so you can connect to resources stored in IBM Informix or IBM DB2 databases. We support SELECT, INSERT, UPDATE, and DELETE operations.

     UserVoice is a product management and customer support tool that allows businesses to build a suggestions portal for their users to submit feature ideas, build a ticketing system for customer support and build articles knowledge base for users.






Delete SharePoint list items based on particular view using PowerShell

In this article you can able to see how to delete  SharePoint list items based on the particular view and also having another condition how have to delete items on every Monday, we created a couple of views what type of data have to delete based on item created date.
One view is used to delete SharePoint list items every day and another delete only on Monday.

Note:  by default list item limit is 30 items, we have to modify the view based on the requirement I change to 5000 so every day it will delete only 5000 items to delete.

add-pssnapin microsoft.sharepoint.powershell
$web = get-spweb -identity "http://dotnetsharepoint.com/sites/sharepoint/deleteitems"
$MainList = $web.lists["DeleteListItems"];
$today = (get-date).DayOfWeek
if($today -eq "Monday")
{
$view = $MainList.Views["DeleteMondaylistitems"];
}   
else
{
$view = $MainList.Views["DeleteEverydaylistitems"];
}
$items = $MainList.GetItems($view)
$totalcount = $items.Count
$j = 0;
for($i = $totalcount -1; $i -ge 0; $i--)
{
$deleteitem = $items[$i]
write-host $deleteitem.ID
$deleteitem.Delete()
}

How to add blank value to choice field in SharePoint

As per my requirement I want to show blank value in choice field, but SharePoint won’t take space as a valid option. So we can use ASCII code.
Method1: We can use Unicode character that does not print nothing. I tried with U+205F & it’s working as expected. To use this character please check the below steps.
1.    Navigate to Start -> run -> charmap
  

It will open Character Map Window.
Choose Font: Calibri, Drag down the cursor & select black check the code finally click copy the code

Paste the code in choice field and save.

Now check blank field. 

It’s working as expected.
Method 2: Use ASCII code 0129. It is empty character that SharePoint will accept as a valid option. It will appears empty on dropdown list. Hold down the ALT key and type the number 0129
