This course delivers an instructor-led product showcase for Microsoft Power Automate from start to finish in an engaging and practical way. Power Automate is a diverse product, turning business processes into automated, consistent and visual workflows. Power Automate is designed to interweave the various products in Microsoft 365 as well as connect to other on-premises and web-based solutions. This course will give you the confidence to select the right actions and workflow logic for your business workflow.
At Course Completion
Let’s get started with an introduction to Microsoft Power Automate. Historically, automating business processes typically landed in the lap of a developer in the business, who has a good understanding of coding and the systems that they were connecting. However, more and more systems deployed to businesses are encouraging a bigger focus on end user design and management. With this culture change, end users are looking to further improve their business solutions. Power Automate brings workPower Automate design to all audiences. It offers the building blocks for lightweight or business-critical processes. In this module, we cover an overview of the product and its application to Office 365 and third-party services.
Lab 1: Setup your tenant
We begin our discovery of Microsoft Power Automate by building our first business process. We will discuss how to use templates to get started with Power Automate or how to use a blank template to start with no defined actions. Once in the product, we will give you a tour of the editor, workPower Automate management page and the home screen to help you navigate around the product. Next, we will start to add, edit and remove actions from our workPower Automate template in order to customize the Power Automate for a specific business need. Once ready we will publish and trigger the workPower Automate to test that it works as expected. We will finish this module by discussing how to turn a Power Automate on or off as well as deleting a Power Automate.
Lab 1: Building processes in Office 365
Decision making during a business process is often a bottleneck. Waiting for decisions or information to steer the workPower Automate towards its goal is dependent on how long the involved party spends on the task. This could be mitigated if the desired information is found declared elsewhere for example, as a document property or a form entry to name a few examples. Logic in a workPower Automate allows existing information to push the workPower Automate down multiple paths. This often speeds up workPower Automate duration and minimizes human input. In this module, we will look at the core logic found in Power Automate and a practical application of each option.
Lab 1: Scheduling documentation reviews
Businesses will often user a selection of productivity tools and services beyond Office 365. Marketing teams may use Facebook and Twitter whereas a sales team may use Salesforce to manage their customers. Power Automate provides connectors for popular services allowing your processes to extend beyond Office 365 to other web services. Connections can even be made to on-premises servers, allowing your business systems house at the office to take part in your processes.
Lab 1: Using Power Automate and SQL to Review Sales
Power Automate has a corresponding mobile app that can be used to leverage many features of Power Automate. Firstly, it offers users the capability to build new Power Automates, directly from their phone or tablet. Secondly, it can be used to manage existing Power Automates including editing, viewing history, saving a copy, disabling and deleting Power Automates. You can access any approvals that have been sent to you by Power Automate and approve or reject decisions. The app also supports the push notifications that can be sent to your phone or tablet from a Power Automate. Additionally, you can even create buttons that appear in the app which allow you to trigger Power Automates. This valuable app will be detailed in this module.
Lab 1: Optional: Using the Power Automate mobile app
In our last module for Microsoft Power Automate, we will be taking a look at how a business can manage their Power Automates once they have a good uptake of the product. We will begin by discussing managing individual Power Automates. This could be using history to discover the source of any issues and implement error handling as well as using the analytics to discover usage trends. We will discover how to share a Power Automate which is ideal for sharing the maintenance of a Power Automate with another colleague and how to import and export Power Automates. Finally, we will discuss how Office 365 administrators can shape the Power Automate experience with high-level settings that help ensure data segregation and security.
