Automations, implementation, and flexible frameworks with Microsoft Power Automate

Automations, implementation, flexible frameworks. They all sound great, but how do they actually benefit your business? With Microsoft Power Automate, the possibilities may be endless but the benefits are easy to see. 

HingePoint is breaking down three key examples of how to supercharge your workflow and improve your organization’s productivity, processes, and bottom line. Grab your notepad and prepare to reimagine your business. Now, let’s dive in. 

1. Easily integrate with hundreds of software applications

When businesses perform automation, the main barrier we see them face is the connectivity to specific services they already use. For example, integrations that connect data from a SharePoint list or from an Excel sheet to the OneDrive for storage aren’t always available. Power Automation seamlessly integrates with SharePoint project management tools, SharePoint workflows, and other systems that may already be in place within your organization.

Our approach: To resolve this issue, we use SharePoint Designer Workflow, lists, and libraries to perform the automation. We also utilize Microsoft Flow to integrate with thousands of other software and services. Not only does Power Automate easily connect with Microsoft products, but it also communicates with ease with other programs. 


2. Automated triggers so you don’t have to lift a finger

In any automation, the most important step is defining what trigger or action signals the start of an automation process. When do you want automation to be sent and what determining factor dictates that initiation? 

Our approach: We use the Microsoft Flow Triggers to start the automation process. These triggers specify how and when a workflow gets carried out. We also create custom triggers specifically to collect data and perform further business operation logics.


3. Email automation that actually works

Power Automate can decipher an email’s content and process it according to predetermined filters. For example, an organization can utilize email automation for their invoice approval process. Power Automate takes an invoice as an email attachment and moves it into the library for automatic invoice approval. Simple, easy, and effective.

Our approach: We implement a filter according to specific keywords in an email’s subject line, body content, or by the email sender’s address.
