Takeaways: Through a comprehensive demo from the perspective of a Dynamics 365 Solution Specialist, attendees will learn some tips and tricks for leveraging Power Automate’s strongest capabilities. Sharper focus: Set row filters on trigger condition to add specificity and reduce unnecessary runs Longer reach with related records: Workflows can only reach to an attribute on a related record, but with the “Get a Row by ID” action, Flow’s reach is basically infinite. Wider impact per run: With “apply to each” action, a single Power Automate flow run to cover the update of up to 5000 records, whereas a workflow would have to run on each individual record or call a plugin to then act on each of those records separately Resilient: “Run after fail” allows flows to continue after a failed step Tag team with more friends: Over 300 connectors currently exist, and the list is constantly growing Generally smarter: Ability to use functions to do things like format date fields, return calculations, compose variables, etc.
