Power Automate, previously named Microsoft Flow, enables users to create and automate repetitive tasks and processes across the business. By automating processes, businesses can focus their time and energy on higher-value work and reduce the potential of human error in monotonous tasks.
Automated workflows can be created across Microsoft Applications and third-party applications, aiming to increase efficiency across the entire business.
Benefits of Power Automate
Power Automate Features
As mentioned previously, Power Automate ultimately allows businesses to automate time-consuming and repetitive tasks. Users can create workflows across multiple applications, without the need for technical experience. These automated workflows are called flows and can be triggered when a specific event occurs.
The most common uses of Power Automate are creating workflows to synchronise files, get notifications or gather data, however, there are hundreds of processes a business could automate.
Use low-code, drag-and-drop tools and hundreds of prebuilt connectors that allow you to automate repetitive tasks with ease.
Turn repetitive tasks into multistep workflows that you can customise and add one or more actions for the same trigger.
For example, an email could be sent within Outlook, then an activity could be scheduled in Dynamics 365 off the back of this. Alternatively, a new CRM record could be created, to then deliver a push notification.
Set up automated workflows to quickly respond to documents or requests for time off, overtime, travel plans or documents like budgets, contracts, sales opportunities, and more.
Approvers will receive email notifications about pending approvals and can view and respond to all approval requests in the unified approvals centre.
Flows can be built from scratch, however, Microsoft has an extensive Power Automate template library that users can use to get started, covering hundreds of common processes.
Power Automate has a mobile app that is handy, useful, and easy to navigate for users on-the-go. Users can easily create new automated workflows, keep on top of activities, get push notifications, trigger flows, share flows with teams, and more.
Teams + Power Automate
Power Automate works seamlessly with Microsoft Teams, allowing users to create flows that automate repetitive work tasks from within Teams.
Common uses for this are; approval for new documents in Teams, converting a chat into a Sales opportunity, tracking project information from within Teams, following up on pivotal conversations, and more.
Microsoft Power Automate Examples
There are 1000’s of pre-built automation templates that businesses can use to get started with. These cover common business processes, such as automatically saving email attachments, managing approvals, sending automatic reminders for past due tasks, and sending notifications for various events.
Additionally, Power Automate is not just limited to Microsoft Dynamics 365. There are hundreds of connectors for apps including Outlook, SharePoint, Microsoft Teams, Adobe Sign, MailChimp, Twitter and Facebook.Discover more examples
