The other day in the office, my coworkers and I reminisced about the days before business automation. We laughed ruefully at the myriad hours spent managing workflows and projects, scrambling to keep tabs on the various moving parts of our company operations. There were always deadlines to monitor, workers to whom we had to send reminders, workers to whom we had to send extra reminders, and sometimes even the nightmare scenario of an employee joining or leaving the team and us having to redistribute their workload.
In this video we look at working through a Power Automate flow while allowing it to check conditions based on today’s date. Dates are a powerful thing in Power Automate as you can utilize them to keep a flow progressing or stop a flow from progressing. This comes in handy when dealing with requests made by users.
In this video, I will be going over how to utilize PowerApps to make filling out forms more streamlined and easier to manage. We look at making other fields hidden based on the value on a specified field of our choosing and other ways to keep the user from leaving fields empty. PowerApps is a great way to enable users to fill out forms while keeping them in-line with the way you want the form filled out. No more worrying about users putting in information you don’t need or the user leaving anything out!
In this video series, I will provide an in-depth review of Power Automate and PowerApps functionality, integration between the two, and how truly efficient this combination can be. This first video is an introduction to what I will be discussing over the next several episodes. By the end of the series, you will have a better understanding of these two applications and the experience that you can deliver to users within your organization.
Cloud technology has grown over the past few years, and even more so recently due to COVID-19. With many organizations packing up and working from home, they must be able to keep their business processes streamlined and efficient even when out of the office. Organizations need reliable and consistent ways to give employees and clients the ability to capitalize on this technology and the impact it can have on revenue. This is where Power Platform comes into play.
