What You’ll learn from this workshop
You'll learn Power Automate from the ground up. Starting with what it is and where it fits into the Microsoft Power Platform. You'll then explore essential topics to help build your knowledge before taking on a challenge to develop your own flow.
It will be an interactive workshop with exercises and participation encouraged.
What is Power Automate, and how can it be used to help you automate your work?
How to get started building Power Automate Flows?
What are Triggers & Actions, and understand why they are essential in Power Automate?
Learn how to capture different types of data to use within your Flows.
Understand how to use the out-of-the-box to speed up your development time.
Note: You'll need at least an entry level Microsoft 365 Licence to get the most from the workshop (such as Microsoft365 Business Basics).
Understand how to structure Flows to make them easier to support and maintain.
Learn how to connect your Flows to other solutions, systems and services.
Alternatively: Join the Microsoft Developer Programme. It's free and provides a free, fully featured M365 licence to practice with.
Explore how to use validation and conditions to control the process in your Flows.
Discover how to publish your Flows and embed them into your business processes.
Another Way: Speak to your Microsoft 365 admin and ask for a licence to make Power apps, Power Automate Flows and SharePoint sites. They can arrange it.
Question: Do You Want to Accelerate Productivity In Your Organisation?
And have you heard of Power Automate or Microsoft 365?
In this 3 hour workshop, Jon will introduce you to just how powerful Power Automate can be as a brain AND a workhorse behind improvements to processes in your business.
You'll use Collab365's tried and tested B.L.U.E (build it, learn it, use it, enhance it) model to get the most from the 3-hour workshop. We believe that instead of just listening for 3 hours, encouraging you to jump onto your Microsoft 365 tenant (with your admin approval) and build some great starter flows will give you a much richer learning experience.
Before you begin, you'll get a full, in-depth tour of how the main aspects of Power Automate work, how to set them up and use them, and also some hidden tips and tricks you may not know about.
You'll then go on to start working with examples of :
- Vacation Approval Flows
- A Flow to help in onboarding when someone new joins a Teams Channel
- A Flow which triggers an approval when a new document is added to a SharePoint list
- And more ....
This workshop is for the beginner.
You'll learn some new terms that you may not have known about before but your Coach will take time to explain and answer any questions you might have.
You'll also get hands on yourself by building the example flows and leave with a new confidence to go explore the options Power Automate can offer.
