Let’s begin with an overview of Microsoft Automate. Historically, automating business operations was often assigned to a developer within the organization who has a strong grasp of both coding and the systems to which they were connecting. However, the increasing number of systems deployed in enterprises encourages a greater emphasis on end user design and administration. End users are looking to further improve their business solutions as a result of this cultural shift. Automate makes workflow design accessible to all users. It provides the building components for simple or complex processes. This module discusses the product and its integration with Office 365 and third-party services.

By creating our first business process, we begin our exploration with Microsoft Automate. We’ll explain how to get started with Automate by using templates or by starting with a blank template with no preset actions. Once within the product, we’ll take you on a tour of the editor, workflow management page, and home screen to familiarize you with the interface. Following that, we’ll begin adding, editing, and deleting actions from our workflow template in order to tailor the flow to a specific business need. Once complete, we’ll publish and test the workflow to ensure it functions as planned. We will conclude this session by learning how to activate or deactivate a flow, as well as how to delete it.

Decision making is frequently a barrier in company processes. The amount of time spent waiting for choices or information necessary to direct the workflow toward its goal is proportional to the amount of time spent on the task by the relevant party. This can be minimized if the desired information is specified in another location, for example, as a document property or a form item. Logic in a workflow enables existing data to direct the workflow in numerous directions. This frequently reduces the duration of workflows and eliminates the need for human intervention. This session will examine the underlying concept of Microsoft Automate and demonstrate how each option can be used in practice.

Automate includes connections for popular services, enabling you to extend your operations beyond Office 365 and into the world of web services. Connections can also be established to on-premises servers, allowing your office-based business systems to participate in your processes.

Second, it may be used to manage existing flows by altering, viewing their history, storing a copy, disabling, and removing them. You can view and approve or reject any approvals submitted to you by Automate. Additionally, the software offers push alerts that can be sent from a flow to your phone or tablet. Additionally, you may construct in-app buttons that trigger flows. This useful use will be discussed in full in this module.
