PWR304 – Business Process Automation with PowerApps and Flow
In this session I’ll demo how to use PowerApps and Flow with SharePoint Online to create business solutions that save time and money. Many information workers don’t know that Office 365 includes a number of tools that can help drive personal productivity:
- PowerApps can be used to customize forms to capture data and to display that data back to users in a meaningful way.
- Flow can automate many of the repetitious tasks we spend valuable time on each day.
- SharePoint brings it all together – one stop shop for everything you need!
In 2016, Microsoft introduced two new tools for Office 365: PowerApps and Flow. PowerApps is designed for power users everywhere to connect, create and share business data with your team on any device in minutes. Flow is designed to create automated workflows between your applications and services, such as SharePoint, to get notifications, synchronize files and collect data.
In this session, users will learn how to get started quickly with the PowerApps to create apps with an Microsoft Office-like experience. Users will discover how to use built-in connections to connect PowerApps to services such as SharePoint, Office 365, and OneDrive, and even on-premises systems such as SharePoint. Users will also learn how to share PowerApps with coworkers to take advantage of an app you created.
This session will also discuss how to get started with Microsoft Flow. Users will learn how to take advantage of pre-built templates for creating workflows. Users will also learn how to create their own flows in an easy visual designer that works anywhere on the web. Finally, we’ll discuss how to manage your Flows during and after runtime.
The future of SharePoint is exciting, and the addition of PowerApps and Flow can help to address the myriad of business processes faced by today’s business teams.
