In this chapter, we covered new connectors and actions, as well as an example of nesting an expression inside another expression by formatting the value from utcNow() with the formatDateTime() expression. By combining multiple expressions, you can display variable data in a format that makes sense for the flow.

As you've seen, button flows can be useful for quick tasks that can be executed from either the web portal or a mobile device. While button flows can be created from mobile devices, you may want to consider creating complex flows from the web interface so that you can see more components on the screen at the same time.

In the next chapter, we're going to look at using push notifications to increase visibility and draw attention to noteworthy items.
