What is Microsoft Power Automate?

Power Automate was previously known as Microsoft Flow.  Moreover, it is a cloud-based service that provides businesses with several prebuilt connectors, drag & drop and low-code tools. Further, it enables them to create automated workflows and efficiently carry out their business processes. As a result, businesses can streamline their everyday activities, unlock the productivity of their employees, and pave the way for efficient business processes.

Power Automate allows businesses to do away with time-consuming and repetitive tasks by using Flows, the building blocks of automating tasks.

In this blog, let us dive deeper and look at Power Automate’s different types of flows.

Microsoft Power Automate offers three types of Flows

  1. Cloud Flows
  2. Desktop Flows
  3. Business Process Flows

Cloud Flows

In Power Automate, using cloud flows, businesses can automate workflows between modern (API) cloud-based services. Moreover, it provides businesses with Digital Process Automation, logic-based designer, pre-built templates, numerous connectors. As a result, it seamlessly paves the way for robust automation. Further, three different types of cloud flows allow businesses to trigger their automated processes either automatically, instantly, or via a schedule.

Automated Flows

The automated flows in Power Automate provide connectors for connecting cloud or on-premises services to the different business accounts. As a result, businesses can easily automate tasks by creating triggers for several scenarios–for instance, emails, social media mentions etc.

Instant Flows

With Instant flows in Power Automate, businesses can automate repetitive tasks from mobile & desktop.

Scheduled Flows

With Scheduled Flows, businesses can automate and schedule their daily tasks. For instance, uploading daily data to SharePoint or a database.

Desktop Flows

In Power Automate, businesses can automate tasks on the desktop or the web using desktop flows.  Desktop Flows enables businesses to automate workflows between modern (API) cloud-based services and legacy (non-API) systems. Further, it offers Robotic Process Automation, intuitive drag-and-drop visual designer, desktop, and web recorders. As a result, it allows businesses to automate their tasks by automating the user interface of their desktop. Moreover, the desktop flows can be run in different ways such as manually, on a schedule, etc.

Business Process Flows

This feature in Power Automate allows businesses to automate multi-step and guided processes.  As a result, it facilitates a streamlined user experience and empowers businesses to cater to their unique business needs.

To put it simply, Power Automate is a “ great tool that helps businesses streamline how they work, reduce human error, and standardize everyday business processes.”
