Getting Started with Power Automate

In the first chapter, we introduced some of the basic concepts of Microsoft Power Automate. Now that you're familiar with some of the ideas and terminology behind Power Automate, let's take a look at navigating the interface.

As a Power Automate user, you'll likely have access to the web portal interface (most commonly used) as well as the mobile interface. If you administer a Microsoft 365 tenant, you'll also have some administrative features available.

In this chapter, we'll tackle the following:

  • Logging in to Power Automate
  • Creating your first flow

You'll learn the features of the interfaces, and then we'll create a basic flow to post to a Teams channel.

Let's get started!
