Microsoft Power Automate

Automate business processes


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

Improve productivity

Power Automate helps your business save time, improve productivity and ultimately work much more effectively. By automating repetitive tasks that take up time within the day, employees can work smarter and improve overall business performance.

Automate tasks across systems

Power Automate connects and automates tasks across hundreds of apps, both within the Microsoft eco-system and external sources.

Save time with decision making

By automating processes, such as approval workflows to respond to time-off requests, document approvals, sales opportunities, etc, you are able to save time with decision making. 

Accessible anywhere

Power Automate’s mobile app means that team members can create, run, and check on automated workflows even when out of the office. 

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.

Drag-and-Drop Functionality

Use low-code, drag-and-drop tools and hundreds of prebuilt connectors that allow you to automate repetitive tasks with ease.

Multistep Workflows

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.

Approve Requests

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.

Pre-Built Templates

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 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.
