Microsoft made an IFTTT-like tool. Unfortunately, it's not quite ready to debut.

IFTTT, also known as If This Then That, is a popular tool that allows you to connect web services to get things done in an automated manner. For instance, you could implement a "recipe" so that whenever you tweet a photo, it gets saved to your Dropbox. The possibilities are endless.

Twitter user h0x0d discovered Microsoft Flow. It's a preview service that also connects services together. You can connect, for instance, Twitter, Slack, Google Drive, Dropbox, and Office 365. Flow also suggests several "flows" (aka recipes), such as "save tweets to a CSV file in Dropbox".

Microsoft published this blog post about the tool, which is called Flow, and then it removed the post (though you can still access it via cache). Interestingly, it also offers this "Getting started" FAQ page, which will walk you through how Flow works. That page hasn't been removed yet.

Flow went live yesterday as a preview, and it's not yet clear when it'll go public. But you can go to the website now and browse through more than 35 services enabled in the Flow preview. Microsoft plans to add more every week.
