We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The automation provided by this solution has saved us a lot of time."
"The most valuable feature is that it is pretty low-code, so you don't need much coding expertise to use it."
"Power Automate has allowed us to simplify the business process and improve operational efficiency."
"This product is a really easy-to-use solution for quickly developing prototypes."
"Power Automate is not complex and is very easy-to-use in deploying most development projects."
"For people who already use Office 365, Power Automate is very easy to integrate and use."
"Power Automate is intuitive and easy to use."
"The most valuable feature is the ability and ease of linking multiple connectors within the same flow."
"In just in one click, we can see any documentation, etc., that we need. It makes it very easy to navigate."
"It would be very helpful to have a simple and extensive training guide, or training model, to help learn how to work with the product."
"I would like to have a user account so that the staff can see all of their requests, including the status and other details for each one, on the dashboard."
"There is an RPA feature gap between this solution and other more mature products."
"If the product had onscreen help, it would be easier to learn and use."
"The thing which needs the most improvement is really the documentation. It should have better details of the processes."
"Compared to other RPA solutions, there is a little bit of a feature gap."
"The licensing model is difficult to understand and is something that should be improved."
"I would like to have chatbot assistance available, where you can open it and receive help on the spot."
"All the services on the Microsoft platform are great. If we want to try something like with SharePoint or Azure or the 365 CRM, then we can't with the everyday community edition of the Microsoft Power Automate. It would be a good thing if there was some sort of trial period. Let's say you have 14 days. That way, can log into the loading screen with Power Automate, and get to utilize services like SharePoint, OneDrive, 365 CRM or etc. to see if they like them. It would be a good way for Microsoft to cross-sell or up-sell."
"This solution is bundled with our Office 365, so there is no additional licensing fee."
"You pay for use and if you want a premium connector or adapter, but a lot of things are available for free."
"Power Automate is a much less expensive product than the competition."
"There are many different ways to license it."
"This solution can save money when used for simple tasks specifically using only Microsoft products."
"There is zero licensing cost. It comes with our Microsoft Office subscription."
"I don't deal with the financial side. I know that we pay for a per-user license. It is probably less than $20 a user, but I am not sure about the exact figures."
"I am not aware of the recent pricing model, but during the time that I was using this solution is was reasonable."
