    Thanks Kevin, This is great and I can see the advantage over UiPath 3 fold. I have access to other peoples automation projects. I do not have to do any coding. I could save time and possibly some money by just getting an Office 365 subscription. This is awesome!

    Is there a template which I can re-use.

    Always the same thing, a very basic tutorial about Power Automate. It Doesn't really benefit anyone.

    I didn't know that Flow allows other apps that aren't from Microsoft Office :O

    With SP2010 workflows going away, people need to start getting better at creating flows

    Great video. I've got a few flows created and they've worked. However, one day they stopped working and I received the following error message:
    "Your flow could not be enabled because it contains connectors to applications which are not compatible with the Gmail connector used in this flow"
    Has anyone encountered this and know how to fix this?

    Great video. This looks useful. Could this be used to automate data queries in Excel or Power BI that need updating weekly for instance? Speaking of Power Bi – that would be a nice video idea!

    Great video. Got me going down a rabbit trail of automating MS Form responses to Word docs. Example use: employment application data — > easier to read template stored in SharePoint. Unfortunately, looks like Word connector is only available for Business accounts. Another connector, PlumSail provides similar functionality, but is another paid service.

    I like Microsoft Power Automate and it has a lot of potential but it doesn't offer much more options as IFTTT.

    How MacOS friendly is PowerAutomate? With the premium Macro-like features and all?

    Please do a video about MyAnalytics outlook insights with Microsoft 365.
    Actually my IT department disabled it, but I was finding it really useful and I would love to know more about it.

    This is pretty cool, I didn't know that this existed. It would be awesome to be able to connect this to Cortana or some other voice assistant as a trigger for a flow. Custom Cortana commands!
