On January 28, 2020 I had an opportunity to speak remotely to the Ottawa Microsoft Modern Workplace user group. Big thanks to Mike Maadarani @mikemaadarani
This session was all about moving away from SharePoint Designer workflow and migrating to Power Automate (Flow). There are a number of things to unlearn and relearn in this case. I got to share some lessons from the the field with the folks in Ottawa. Using Microsoft Teams I was able to present live in Ottawa all the way from Raleigh, NC!
I love Teams and the power it has to bring communities together. My local user group, Charlotte Area SharePoint User Group https://twitter.com/CASPUG, uses Teams as well and it’s a great way to bring in remote attendees and presenters. We also record our sessions and upload them to a private Yammer group for our members.
SharePoint Designer workflow to Power Automate (Flow): What you need to know!
In this session, you will learn about the evolution of workflow from SharePoint Designer workflow to Power Automate (Flow). This isn’t a lift and shift migration. You need to rethink your custom workflow approach for SharePoint and Office 365.
We will compare creating custom workflows using SharePoint Designer and Power Automate (Flow), including a detailed breakdown of the features supported in each.
Connectors, data sources, and gateways
Events vs triggers
SharePoint Designer actions vs Flow actions
Conditions for Flow
Flow connections and ownership
This session is designed to showcase how custom workflows can provide a no code/low code solution, that helps increase efficiency in the workplace, provide transparency, and promote productivity.
