Microsoft Power Automate is one of five components of the Microsoft Power platform, along with Microsoft Power BI, Microsoft Power Apps, Microsoft Power Pages and Microsoft Power Virtual Agents. The core functionality of the application is to create semi-automated workflows.
Repetitive routine tasks cost a lot of time. That’s annoying and no one needs that. In addition, careless mistakes happen quickly in stressful situations, which then lead to even more work. Finally, it can quickly become frustrating for employees to have to do only repetitive and tedious work. Don’t let that happen. You don’t have to and you don’t need to.
What you should ask yourself: Can you afford for careless mistakes to happen, employees to be dissatisfied, and other value-added tasks to be neglected?
Microsoft Power Automate (formerly Flow) is a practical workflow tool that allows you to easily automate regular, recurring routine tasks into workflows. They are very flexible: workflows can range from individual tasks (e.g. notifications) to extensive systems (e.g. complex approval processes). Any logic can be created to be executed automatically when certain events occur. And the best thing about it: you don’t need any programming knowledge.
By using robotic process automation (RPA) from Power Automate, you free your team from routine tasks in part (supervised RPA) or entirely (unsupervised RPA). Software bots are trained to perform the labour-intensive, repetitive, manual tasks.
Automate labor-intensive and repetitive tasks such as front office operations.
People only need to trigger tasks or respond to specific prompts (e.g. answer yes/no to a question).
Let the bots do the labor-intensive and less profitable tasks by recording and replaying the actions without requiring any computer intervention.
The processes are fully automated (end-to-end automation), so you can schedule and trigger events in large numbers.

Within a few clicks, you create your workflows either from an empty flow app based on a connector (list of connectors) or from one of the many templates from Microsoft. In addition, you only define once which services are to communicate with each other.
Create event-driven flows, creating workflows that automatically execute one or more tasks after they are triggered by an event.
Create a flow that executes one or more tasks (e.g., report via email) at a specified time. On a specified date or after a number of days.
Business process flows are instructions for recurring tasks. They allow you to define a sequence of steps that people must perform to achieve a desired result. Examples: Processing customer service requests, submitting an order including invoice approval workflow.
CCreate button flows so you can perform recurring tasks anytime/anyplace easily from your mobile device. You’ll save time and fewer errors occur than when you run them manually. Example: Button that sends an email reminder to a specific group of people.
Power Automate can be used for a wide variety of scenarios. We have put together some use cases for you, in which you will surely recognize yourself with your wishes:
The creation of workflows requires no programming or programming knowledge.
Variety of connectors
In a Power Automate Workflow you can easily connect numerous connectors with each other.
With Power Automate, you can combine multiple tasks into an event-driven workflow.
Using Microsoft Power Automate (formerly Microsoft Flow), you can automate regular, recurring processes and routine tasks in a simple and relaxed way via workflows. Workflows range from single tasks (e.g., notifications) to large-scale systems (e.g., complex approval processes). Best of all, you don’t need any programming skills (low-code application). Within a few clicks, you create your workflows either from an empty flow app based on a connector (list of connectors) or from one of Microsoft’s many templates.
Power Automate free allows limited testing of Power Automate. Every user can test Power Automate free for 90 days. The service is free of charge. This means that there are no fees for the licenses.
Power Automate has been a fundamental part of Office 365 since March 2022.
