The 5 best things about Power Automate
Part one of a six-part series of blogs
A separate blog lists the 5 worst things about Power Automate; this more positive blog lists its 5 best features!
Power Automate is an amazing bit of software, providing a way to programmatically control a huge range of cloud-based software applications in a consistent way. This blog lists my 5 favourite things about Power Automate.
In the interests of fairness, I've also summarised my 5 worst things about Power Automate (it's good to see things from different angles). I think a fair summary would be that while I love what Power Automate does, I don't always like the way it does it!
Here is my top 5 list:
|1||Its sheer range||Power Automate provides a single environment in which you can link a bewildering range of apps running in the cloud in a consistent way.|
|2||The concept of triggers||Kudos to Microsoft for managing to get so many events in so many applications to trigger flows and handle actions.|
|3||Testing flows||It's clever that you can not only test flows by triggering them, but also test them by running a simulation of a previous occasion on which a flow was triggered.|
|4||Consistency||I don't always like the way that Power Automate lets you create flows, but it is consistent: the user interface is the same whatever you're trying to do.|
|5||Approvals||The process for managing approvals for a task is not only really useful, but also neatly implemented.|
What I won't do in this blog is to review the individual cloud-based Microsoft applications (so you'll have to read a separate blog to hear me raving about Forms, for example).
To quote Julie Andrews, let's start at the very beginning (it's a very good place to start) ...
