Power Automate is an online workflow service that automates actions across
the most common apps and services. For example, you can create a flow that
adds a lead to Microsoft Dynamics 365 and a record in MailChimp whenever
someone with more than 100 followers tweets about your company.
When you sign up, you can connect to more than 500 services, and can
manage data either in the cloud or in on-premises sources like SharePoint and Microsoft SQL Server.
What can you do with Power Automate?
You can use Power Automate to automate workflows between your favourite applications and services, sync files, get notifications, collect data, and much more.
For example, you can automate these tasks:
•Instantly respond to high-priority notifications or emails.
•Capture, track, and follow up with new sales leads.
•Copy all email attachments to your OneDrive for Business account.
•Collect data about your business, and share that information with your team.
•Automate approval workflows.
A common use of Power Automate is to receive notifications. For example,
you can instantly receive an email or a push notification on your
phone whenever a sales lead is added to Dynamics 365 or Salesforce.
You can also use Power Automate to copy files. For example, you can ensure that any file that’s added to Dropbox is automatically copied to SharePoint, where your team can find it.
