Overall Satisfaction with Microsoft Power Automate (formerly Microsoft Flow)

We needed a solution for our payables department to receive invoices from email attachments, going into a one drive folder. Microsoft Power Automate gave me the tools needed to design a product that achieves our end goal in simplifying payables document management. We linked it from our Exchange Online mailbox to our Microsoft OneDrive account.
  • Allows you to create automation and scripts that speed up productivity in the workplace.
  • Shows an overview of the workflow and job history.
  • Has lots of plug-ins with other Microsoft and third party vendors' product's.
  • Would like to see deeper integration with Exchange online, specifically the plugin realizing that an email is being sent via an alias address, not the primary SMTP address. We had to do a workaround that involved creating multiple single-member distribution groups to get power to automate to differentiate different email addresses going to the same mailbox.
  • The interface is slow to load at times.
  • Microsoft Exchange Online integration.
  • Microsoft OneDrive integration.
  • File handling ability.
  • We've seen productivity increase 20% for our payables department, they no longer have to download email attachments and put them into folders.
We were previously using on-prem Sharepoint and Exchange 2016. After migrating to 365 we realized it was hard to replicate this functionality without using power automate. We didn't look elsewhere because the license was included with our 365 subscriptions.

Do you think Microsoft Power Automate delivers good value for the price?


Are you happy with Microsoft Power Automate's feature set?


Did Microsoft Power Automate live up to sales and marketing promises?


Did implementation of Microsoft Power Automate go as expected?


Would you buy Microsoft Power Automate again?


The integrations for Microsoft products seem robust and reliable. It's well suited for workflows staying inside 365 products, but not as much when it comes to third-party integrations. Microsoft Power Automate also is not suited for IoT due to a lack of integration with those services.
