This module will focus on how to use templates to get started with Flow or how to use a blank template to start with no defined actions. It also will give student a tour of the editor, workflow management page and the home screen to help you navigate around the product. Next, we will start to add, edit and remove actions from our workflow template in order to customize the Flow for a specific business need. Once ready we will publish and trigger the workflow to test that it works as expected. We will finish this module by discussing how to turn a Flow on or off as well as deleting an Flow.

Businesses will often user a selection of productivity tools and services beyond Microsoft 365. Marketing teams may use Facebook and Twitter whereas a sales team may use Salesforce to manage their customers.

Power Automate has a corresponding mobile app that can be used to leverage many features of Power Automate. Firstly, it offers users the capability to build new flows, directly from their phone or tablet. Secondly, it can be used to manage existing flows including editing, viewing history, saving a copy, disabling and deleting flows. You can access any approvals that have been sent to you by Power Automate and approve or reject decisions. The app also supports the push notifications that can be sent to your phone or tablet from a flow. Additionally, you can even create buttons that appear in the app which allow you to trigger flows. This valuable app will be detailed in this module.

In our last module for Microsoft Power Automate, we will be taking a look at how a business can manage their flows once they have a good uptake of the product. We will begin by discussing managing individual flows. This could be using history to discover the source of any issues and implement error handling as well as using the analytics to discover usage trends. We will discover how to share a flow which is ideal for sharing the maintenance of a flow with another colleague and how to import and export flows. Finally, we will discuss how Microsoft 365 administrators can shape the Power Automate experience with high-level settings that help ensure data segregation and security.
