What can you do with MS Power Automate?
Well, simply put, Microsoft Power Automate connects the different applications you use. By making data available from one app to another or copying it. A very simple example is automatically saving email attachments from Outlook to a designated folder on your OneDrive. But make no mistake! This is not a gimmick. Microsoft Power Automate can also handle much more complex processes. You can draw those processes yourself, or you can start from available templates in Power Automate.
So you can also use Microsoft Power Automate to generate new leads. For example, if someone mentions your company in a Twitter post, Power Automate can automatically respond to it and add the contact in your Microsoft Dynamics 365. Templates for such 'flows' are available in Power Automate. Here you can customize which 'actions' you want to link to which 'triggers'.
Power Automate works flawlessly with all Microsoft 365 applicationsbut also integrates many other commonly used apps. It can also be mentioned that Microsoft Power Automate can also be used to protect your company data. Data sharing policies can be enforced with a 'flow' in Microsoft Power Automate. This automatically checks which connectors require access to certain data.
Good to know is also that Microsoft Power Automate may already be available to you. The application is part of the Microsoft 365 suite! Search in your Office 365 portal to the icon with the blue arrow and be surprised by the many possibilities or jump straight to Power Automate.
