In a video tutorial, the use of Power Automate to compare two lists is explained in order to find missing items. This tool is very beneficial when it comes to reminding people to add an item to a list within a specified time frame. The comparison employs arrays, with a demonstration of how to filter SharePoint list results. Moreover, the steps to obtain data from a list, compare it with another list, and see who hasn't included an item in the list are clearly outlined.
Power Automate, previously known as Microsoft Flow, is an online workflow service that automates tasks across multiple applications and services. The tool helps businesses create workflows to automate repetitive processes, enabling them to focus on more strategic tasks. Power Automate can connect to various Microsoft and non-Microsoft services, such as SharePoint, Twitter, and more. With an easy-to-use interface, it can streamline administrative tasks, improve productivity, and enhance operational efficiency.
Power Automate is a powerful tool that can be used to compare two lists and find what's missing. This can be especially useful for sending reminders to people if they forget to add an item to a list in a certain period of time. This comparison is made possible by using arrays. In this video, you will learn how to do date time magic to filter SharePoint list results, get the people from that list and compare it with another list of people to see who doesn't have an item in the list. You will also learn how to configure the trigger, get the data to compare, get direct reports, get users from your list, compare the lists (arrays), and send the notification. It is important to also learn more about variables in order to use Power Automate effectively.
