Microsoft 365 top tips – Power Automate
Microsoft 365 is the industry leader in providing effective office and remote working tools, and has been for quite some time now. For most of us their range of tools has been a staple of our lives growing up and are still as important as they always have been. Some of Microsoft’s tools are more revolutionary than others; one in particular is Power Automate.
People all around the globe use Cloud services for nearly everything in the modern world. In the past, it has been impossible to get them to work in unison and talk to one another, making some of the necessary day-to-day processes quite inconvenient and difficult to manage. Power Automate makes this possible – you can create a workflow with a multi-step flow across a variety of applications.
Let’s use a real-world example to make more sense out of Power Automate.
For example, your business goes through a period of exponential growth and is inundated with tweets about the goods / services you provide. This level of growth was unexpected, and you are concerned that you will have to assign a skilled member of staff to the relatively mundane task of following, replying, and adding the tweeter to your sales spreadsheet. Depending on the level of growth, you are concerned that this task could require a small team to achieve but realise that ignoring the online interest isn’t an option as it opens doors to new business.
That’s where Power Automate comes in. Power Automate makes it possible to set up a flow that follows the tweeter, sends them a reply, and adds them to a spreadsheet that gets emailed to you for your approval. It then inserts their contact details into your sales channel automatically. So, there is no need to waste a valuable member of the team’s time and skills on a task that is beneath their skillset.
You can even create these workflows on the go directly from your phone!
Power Automate means less time spent on the mundane and more time doing what’s important – being productive!
So, how does it work?
Power Automate – how does it work?
The concept of business process automation is working from an initial trigger action, be that prescheduled or because of a prior human action. A series of pre-scripted steps will then take place. However, Power Automate also ensures you have some control by allowing you to define your own parameters from which the automation will act.
Implementing Power Automate at the first opportunity should be a no brainer, as it allows you to get the most from your work day, every day. Utilising tools such as Power Automate allows time for your staff to continue their good work without the distraction of the mundane interrupting them. Let humans do what is important, being creative and productive, and leave the mundane to technology.
