In this chapter, you learned how to export, import, send, and publish flows using the Power Automate interface. Exporting allows you to save a copy for archival purposes, send to colleagues or external entities, or use it to reimport the flow into another environment. Importing a flow allows you to take a previously exported flow and bring it into the current environment. The final tasks you learned about were the two ways in which you can distribute flows in Power Automate – by using either the Send flow or Publish capabilities to make the flow available to others.

In the next chapter, we'll look at monitoring and troubleshooting flows.
