In this chapter, you learned about the six different kinds of user input that Power Automate can accept, including text, numbers, Yes/No choice boxes, and binary data. You also configured a flow that utilizes each of these methods and saved the content to a SharePoint list.

Requesting user input is a very useful feature of Power Automate, enabling a number of self-service and data gathering operations for your organization. With these types of input capabilities, you can enable workflow scenarios that rely on unique data provided at runtime, such as photos of objects or other types of content that can't be obtained without user interaction.

In the next chapter, we'll look at how you can save, export, distribute, and import flows.
