FileMaker handles the small to mid-size company or department use extremely well. Scaling beyond that is not its sweet spot.

Microsoft Power Automate

Microsoft Power Automate is best suited for approvals and working with SharePoint Lists. It is easy to create an approval that either requires the submitter's manager (Active Directory) to approve or enter in a specific person or person's to approve. Additional approvers and other subtasks can be added as well. For example, if the request was approved, a SharePoint List can be created and or updated by adding the new request as a new row and enter in only the data that you set as required on the list. It will also send out customized emails for "Approved" or "Rejected" requests. Also, add comments to Microsoft Teams Channels, export to Microsoft Excel or Adobe PDF, these are some of the features available in flow.

Microsoft Power Automate

  • Allow for important tasks, reminders and emails to be automatically redelivered and pinned for importance.
  • Ease of template use and flow wizard to help those unfamiliar with its potential.
  • Integrates across the entire O365 suite which makes the tool easy to access and little effort to deploy. Simple licensing roll-out is all that is needed.
  • Self-help knowledge base is very informative.

Cons

Claris

  • Not great for use by multiple developers at the same time.
  • Could benefit from built-in audit logging of field level changes.

Microsoft Power Automate

  • One thing is, unlike PowerApps, it's not for everyone. You need some technical know how.
  • Sometimes connections get broken and you might have to recreate the Flow, which can be a nightmare scenario depending on how big it is.
  • Cryptic error messages, I feel we could be given more info when a Flow fails.

Microsoft Power Automate (formerly Microsoft Flow) is very user friendly. It is mostly just click to add functions or connections and then fill in pertinent information to ensure that the connector functions the way that you want. I was able to create my first flow within minutes just by looking through the connectors and piecing it together.

So Microsoft Flow support for its general troubleshooting or correcting issues is excellent. But to my knowledge, Microsoft Flow itself does not have service providers, even though they offer templates on their online app. I have found myself many times trying to complete individual actions that have no known template or even forum example. Every business is unique, and Microsoft does an excellent job of providing versatile yet straightforward systems. Microsoft Flow is definitely on the more advanced side of things. Having support or being able to purchase superior service (on building personalized flows) would be great.

Microsoft Power Automate

In my opinion [Microsoft Power Automate (formerly Microsoft Flow)] is heads and shoulders above Nintex. It was much easier to learn to use and had a much cleaner UI. Nintex and Power Automate both had connections to a lot of platforms but since we used a majority of Microsoft products Power Automate seemed to plug in to our organization just a bit smoother. In the time that we had both products Power Automate had great improvements to an already good product whereas Nintex had much fewer (although also improved).
