How to use Power Automate with SharePoint Online

Microsoft Power Automate (formerly known as Microsoft Flow) is a cloud-based platform that allows users to automate workflows and create custom integrations between different apps and services. It can be used with SharePoint Online, a cloud-based version of SharePoint, to automate various tasks and processes related to managing and collaborating on content stored in SharePoint.

To use Power Automate with SharePoint Online, you will need to have a Power Automate account and be a user of a SharePoint Online site. Once you have these, you can create a new Power Automate flow that includes SharePoint Online as one of the connectors.

To do this, you will need to follow these steps:

  • Sign in to Power Automate and click the "Create" button to create a new flow.
  • Select the "When a file is created or modified" trigger and select the SharePoint Online connector.
  • Select the SharePoint site and library where you want to create the flow, and then click "Create".
  • Add the actions that you want to include in your flow, such as sending an email or creating a new item in another app or service.
  • Save and test your flow to make sure it is working as expected.
  • Once you have created your flow, it will run automatically whenever a new file is created or modified in the specified SharePoint library. You can also trigger the flow manually or schedule it to run at a specific time or on a recurring basis.
