Streamline workflows with AI-powered Power Automate Copilot; create and edit automation scenarios using natural language expressions.

Power Automate Copilot

Copilot in Power Automate is an AI-powered feature that allows users to streamline their workflows by creating automation scenarios using natural language expressions. It is capable of understanding user intent, setting up connections, applying required parameters, responding to requests for flow changes, and answering questions about the flow and product. However, as of now, it's a preview feature, meaning it's not intended for production use and might have limited functionality.
In its current state, Copilot requires a Power Platform environment in a US preview region. Users can create flows by simply describing their automation scenario, with Copilot suggesting AI-generated flow descriptions. Once the flow has been created, users can review and edit it before saving. Prompts for Copilot should ideally follow the 'When X happens, do Y' format, and be as specific as possible for best results.


Users can also edit existing flows with Copilot without needing to recreate them from scratch. There are, however, limitations during the preview phase, including limited parameterization and looping constructs support, and compatibility issues with certain flow capabilities and personal Microsoft accounts. At present, Copilot supports only the English language.

  • Set up connections on your behalf.

  • Apply the necessary parameters in the flow based on your prompt.

  • Respond to your requests to make changes to your flow, such as update actions and replace actions.

  • Answer questions about your flow and product. For example, you can ask Copilot questions about your flow like, What does my flow do? You can also ask Copilot product questions like, How do I access child flows? and How do I access license
