Power Automate - Maximize Workflow: Power Automate Action Clipboard Guide


People also ask

What is the clipboard in Power Automate?

The clipboard in Power Automate refers to a functionality that allows users to copy actions or sequences of actions within their flows. This feature is designed to enable users to easily duplicate tasks, which can be particularly useful for repetitive processes. By using the clipboard, users can copy actions from one part of their flow to another, or even across different flows, streamlining the automation process.

How do I find clipboard history?

Clipboard history in the context of Power Automate is not stored like a traditional computer clipboard, which retains a record of copied items. Instead, when you use the clipboard in Power Automate, it allows you to paste copied actions immediately, but it does not maintain an accessible history of all copied items. To reuse a previously copied action, you would need to copy it again. On a computer system with clipboard history feature enabled, such as Windows 10 or later, users can view the clipboard history by pressing the Windows key + V, where they can find a list of items that were copied to the clipboard. However, this functionality is part of the operating system and is separate from Power Automate's clipboard feature.
