#TGIF Episode 8: Top Reasons to Use Power Automate (Power Automate vs Dynamics 365 Workflows)

Hi Readers and Viewers

Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year! Thanks for your support in 2019 🙂

In this video, we will look at the top reasons for you to start using Power Automate. Also, this is the last episode of the series so I thought what’s better than a comparison. If you remember, in my first episode I asked you that have you found your reason to use Power Automate yet? Well, if you haven’t I am giving you the reasons in this episode.

Not OOTB

Everything in the list above is in context of Dynamics 365. Out of the box (OOTB) Dynamics 365 workflows can’t do any of the above. You will have to create a custom workflow (#code) or a plugin (#code).

Hope I have given you reasons to start working on Power Automate.
