Re: Alternate naming convention
That doesn't sound like a real feature for users... I think I'll pass for as long as I can. MSFT added a countdown clock to its update reminder window. I'll continue ignoring it.

Re: Alternate naming convention
@Michelle - it's right up there with Cortana, which I think is a horrendous choice, but then again, I'm not a gamer.  It seems the name isn't the only flaw in this program if it has trouble deciphering lower case, but I suppose they will figure out in due time.  The one thing that stood out to me was this: "Microsoft says CAP will request access to the applications and internet services that users link to, and it may retain such data for up to a year to improve its products."


Hmmm...I'll invoke some 80s throwback song here:  "I..I..I...I'll do almost anything that you want me to, yeah, but I can't go for that.  No can do."

Alternate naming convention
Agreed, that's the worst name ever. So it's MS Flow, not Flow XO, or Flow IO (not an app or bot)? I'm so glad to know we're getting the best of naming with these things...
