Topic: Power Automate Techniques that “Saved Our Bacon”
Location: via Microsoft Teams
Speaker: Sandra Mahan & Tom Duff
You’re ready to start building workflows in Power Automate… how hard can it be? You’ve been building SharePoint Designer workflows for years. Well, we hate to break it to you… some things that should be hard are easy, and some things that should be easy… aren’t. Join Chefs Sandra and Tom as they “dish up” some techniques they found while learning to think in Power Automate terms instead of SharePoint Designer. While some dishes are definitely not as easy as they were in “the good old days”, you can get similar results in Power Automate if you learn to view things in different ways. Keep in mind that we are *not* experts by any stretch… we’ve spent a lot of time searching and experimenting to find answers that work. You should come away from this session with two or three “recipes” that can help you serve up Power Automate flows that will deliver real value to your business and make your customers happy.
Be sure to forward this meeting info to your colleagues and friends!
