Available Delivery Methods

In this Power Automate Training course, students will learn how to create workflows to automate repetitive tasks. Power Automate allows IT and non-IT employees alike to create low or no-code workflows that, when triggered, perform a series of steps that would otherwise have required manual handling or intervention. Whether it is extracting data from a monthly sales volume email and uploading it to your portal, transferring data between your mainframe application and your SharePoint site or even compiling a weekly revenue dashboard in Excel and sending it as an attachment to your sales managers each week - Power Automate can help you create workflows to take care of it all. In most cases by just pointing and clicking - with no code! In this course, students will gain a firm understanding of what Power Automate is, how it integrates with other applications (both Microsoft and non-Microsoft), how and what data sources it can connect to, how security works in Power Automate and, finally, how to create and manage workflows with Power Automate.

Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to:

  • Understand how and when to use Power Automate
  • Describe the benefits of Power Automate
  • Describe the components of Power Automate and when to use each
  • Create and edit Power Automate workflows
  • Integrate Power Automate with multiple data sources and applications
  1. An Introduction to Power Automate
  2. Historically, automating business processes typically landed in the lap of a developer in the business, who has a good understanding of coding and the systems that they were connecting. However, more and more systems deployed to businesses are encouraging a bigger focus on end user design and management. With this culture change, end users are looking to further improve their business solutions. Power Automate brings workflow design to all audiences. It offers the building blocks for lightweight or business-critical processes. In this module, students will receive an overview of Power Automate and its application to Office 365 and third-party services.

  4. In this module, students will learn how to use templates to get started with Power Automate as well as how to use a blank template to start with no defined actions. Once in the product, students will receive a tour of the editor, workflow management page and the home screen to help them navigate around Power Automate. Next, students will start to add, edit and remove actions from their workflow template in order to customize Power Automate for a specific business need. Once ready, students will publish and trigger the Power Automate workflow to test that it works as expected. Finally, students will see how to turn a Power Automate workflow on or off as well as how to delete a Power Automate workflow.

  5. Use Logic in Power Automate
  6. Decision making during a business process is often a bottleneck. Waiting for decisions or information to steer the workflow towards its goal is dependent on how long the involved party spends on the task. This could be mitigated if the desired information is found declared elsewhere, as a document property or a form entry to name a few examples. Logic in a Power Automate workflow allows existing information to push the workflow down multiple paths. This often speeds up workflow duration and minimizes human input. In this module, we will look at the core logic found in Power Automate and a practical application of each option.

  7. Integrate Power Automate With Services
  8. Businesses will often use a selection of productivity tools and services beyond Office 365. Marketing teams may use Facebook and Twitter whereas a sales team may use Salesforce to manage their customers. Power Automate provides connectors for popular services allowing your processes to extend beyond Office 365 to other web services. Connections can even be made to on-premise servers, allowing your business systems housed at the office to take part in your processes.

It offers users the capability to build new Power Automate workflows directly from their phone or tablet. Additionally, it can be used to manage existing Power Automate workflows including editing, viewing history, saving a copy, disabling and deleting Power Automate workflows. Users can also access any approvals that have been sent to by Power Automate and approve or reject decisions.
