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.
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.
This quick tip is part of my Thank God it’s Flow #TGIF series. There are two tips in this post:
Renaming your UI flow
Modifying and removing connections
Renaming your UI Flow: For general flows you just hit on the pencil/edit button and can rename them by clicking on the name at the top as shown below:
This doesn’t work for UI Flows. Instead you have to click on the name and the click the edit button shown in the screenshot below:
Modifying and removing connections:
All connections are available under Data on the left navigation. So if you reach maximum connection limit and are thinking how to delete/remove one. Here is the place. Just click on the ellipses (…) and select an option
Automation Testing of Dynamics 365– As a functional consultant and business user, we always perform unit testing manually. So I will demonstrate a scenario where we can automate it with the help of UI Flows. Our test scenario is; As a salesperson, I must be able to login to MS Dynamics 365 with office credentials and be able to create a customer/account.
MYOB AccountRight integration with Dynamics 365– As a functional consultant and business user I don’t know a straight forward integration between MYOB and Dynamics 365. So I will demonstrate that whenever you create an invoice in Dynamics 365, UI Flow will create a customer and then invoice in MYOB AccountRight.
I hope both my scenarios add some value to your business and daily work life. You can obviously extend it to any level.
