Microsoft Power Automate Review

Stable, easy to use and deploy, but needs a desktop version and better error descriptions and scalability


What is our primary use case?

We are using Power Automate to send notifications when working with items in SharePoint. It is used to send notifications when a document is moved or needs to be approved. When a document needs to be approved in SharePoint, we send a notification to the user who needs to approve that document. I also use Power Automate to create a work item in another system, such as Azure DevOps.

What is most valuable?

I like Power Automate because it is very easy to use for users who don't have IT knowledge.

What needs improvement?

They can improve the description of errors and provide more details. Sometimes, when I receive an error, I can't understand what is wrong.

It would be useful to have a desktop version to modify or edit workflows. Its scalability can also be better.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using this solution for five months.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It is stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It is scalable, but its scalability can be better. We have 10 to 20 users of this solution.

How are customer service and technical support?

We have a contract with Microsoft for premium support. We have support all the time, and they are good.

How was the initial setup?

Its initial setup is easy. The deployment duration depends on the complexity of the deployment. It can take a week or a month.

What other advice do I have?

To know about the best practices for this solution and how to make it more secure, I would advise others to read the information on the web.

I would rate Microsoft Power Automate a seven out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
