Power Automate

Power Automate is a tool that allows us to streamline business processes and remove repetitive work across the Microsoft 365 ecosystem and even some third party tools. In this session, we are going to walk you through three examples to demonstrate what you can achieve using Power Automate. The first area we will dive into involves handling emails and attachments. We will then gather data from customers using Forms and have that data automatically assigned to the appropriate sales agent. Thirdly, we will get automated data entry from an excel spreadsheet into a non-programmable data storage or processing system.
