In the future, I would like to see more focus on AI and third-party integration. Compared to other RPA solutions, there is a little bit of a feature gap.

I think that the thing which needs the most improvement is really just their documentation. It should have better details of the processes. Right now it is on the lower end of the scale and does not have enough depth. So just adding more details and examples in the documentation would be helpful to users. It could really use some more capabilities with the OCR and UI functionality of the automation. Right now it is pretty good, but with that, it would be great and easier to use.

To improve the product, I think it would be great to see even more connectors available out-of-the-box and more maturity in that direction. I would also like to see some readiness for creating test and production environments so that you can differentiate which environment is you are working in. As far as additional features I am not sure what could really improve the product. It could maybe do with some more insights like triggered alerts.

There is an RPA feature gap between this solution and other more mature products. UiPath is an example of another RPA solution that is more developed.

The user access level and user account part of this product needs to be developed. For example, if I'm a line manager and I have multiple approvals that are automated then I can't log into a dashboard and see all of my requests. 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. This solution does not work well with external people who are outside of the organization, like suppliers. It needs support for external email addresses. It would be difficult to do a supplier onboarding with Power Automate, whereas you could do it with Nintex, and this is a big drawback. I would like to be able to set security and permissions on who can see request-specific details.
