Power Automate

(formerly known as Microsoft Flow)

Process automation for everyone

Power Automate is a versatile automation platform that integrates seamlessly with hundreds of apps and services – new and old alike, including but not limited to Outlook, SharePoint, Dynamics 365, Twitter, and Excel. Power Automate can be used to get notifications, synchronize files, approve requests, collect data, and much more. In addition, a new robotic process automation feature of Power Automate, called UI flows, is used to reduce repetitive manual tasks.
