Overall Satisfaction with Microsoft Power Automate (formerly Microsoft Flow)

Used Power Automate to create instant flows linked with SharePoint Lists to collect/Modify data and notify users. Flow captured the data and converted it into a pdf file and sent it to relevant users in an email.
1. Power Automate helped us streamline our internal expense approval process.
2. Customer Voice Survey results were collected using Power Automate.
3. PowerBi report's data refreshed using Power Automate to show the most relevant data in the dashboards.
  • Capture/modify data in real time.
  • Notifying the users of any changes in data.
  • Customized response email to customers service request emails.
  • Approval file size limit can be increased. currently 50mb in attachment limit.
  • Ability to recover the flows. Currently if a flow is deleted there is no way to recover it.
  • Converting data from SharePoint into pdf can be done but need to use 3rd party connections.
  • Emails in action.
  • Utilizing the MS Teams approvals.

Well Suited
- Collecting data and organizing it.
- Eliminate a lot of admin work.
- Send auto-response emails to customers/users.
- Notify relevant users when the data is updated.
- Creating business process flows.

Less Appropriate
- If creating a flow to create a pdf file that combines all the attachments into one pdf file.
- Flow will fail sometimes if the flow is too long and complex and if the flow connections are changed from one user to another.
