Microsoft Power Automate for Dynamics 365 Business Central

Microsoft Power Automate is one of the components of the Microsoft Power platform alongside Microsoft Power BI, Microsoft Power Apps and Microsoft Power Pages. The core functionality of the application is to create semi-automated workflows.

Tiresome Routine Tasks Are

Your Challenge without Power Automate

Recurring routine tasks take up a lot of time. That’s annoying and nobody needs that. In addition, careless mistakes can easily be made under stress, resulting in even more work. Finally, it can quickly become frustrating for employees to only have to complete repetitive and tedious tasks. Don’t let that happen. You don’t have to and you don’t need to.

What you should ask yourself: Can you afford to allow careless mistakes to happen, employees to be dissatisfied and other value-adding tasks to be neglected?

More Time, fewer Errors and more Satisfaction

Through the Solution: Power Automate

What is Power Automate? Microsoft Power Automate (formerly Flow) is a practical workflow tool that allows you to easily automate regular, recurring routine tasks into workflows. Workflows can range from individual tasks (e.g., notifications) to extensive systems (e.g., complex approval processes). Any logic can be created to automatically execute upon certain events. And the best part: you don’t need any programming skills.

By using the robotic process automation (RPA) of Power Automate, you can partially (attended RPA) or entirely (unattended RPA) free your team from routine tasks. Software bots are trained to perform the labor-intensive, repetitive, manual tasks. Two types are distinguished:

  • Attended RPA (partial automation): Human intervention is necessary to trigger actions or reactions
  • Unattended RPA (full automation): No human intervention is required

  • How do I create a flow?

    • Access Power Automate and select Create a new flow. Alternatively, in Dynamics 365 Business Central, navigate to a page. Select Automate > Power Automate > Create flow from the three dots menu. At this point, you will be redirected to Power Automate to create a new flow. You can choose to create a flow without a template.
    • Assign a name to the flow.
    • Search for available triggers by searching for “Business Central” and select the trigger “When a record is modified”.
    • Next, choose the Environment name (default is “Production”) and your company. Select your company from the dropdown list.
    • Now select the table. Since we want to check our inventory, we would need to choose the option “items” in the Table name field.
    • Then, you can add an action by clicking the + New step command.
    • Continue by searching for “Business Central” and selecting the action Get record. In this step, fill in the Environment name, Company name, and Table name fields again. Additionally, in the Record number field, choose “Row ID” from the dynamic content selection.
    • Now, you can also define additional actions. In this step, we will also set the condition to trigger the action. Select Control > Condition as the action.
    • Next, you can design the email to be sent, utilizing the suggested dynamic content.
    • Finally, save the created flow. In the flow checker, your created flow will be automatically tested, and any issues that arise will be displayed.

    Note: In this example, it is sufficient to define the “Yes” conditions, as nothing should happen if the conditions are not met.
