If we want to perform multiple actions Common Data Service at once , like creating/ updating 100 different records, Flow will make many different calls to CDS. Although it works fine, but it takes lot of time and keeping   limitations on number of requests   , this might not be a good approach. But, no worries , Microsoft is going to solve this by introducing   “Batch”   concept in flow. We can add a  Batch  scope to your flows that will group all these different operations into a single call to Common Data Service to dramatically improve performance. To use this, search for  Batch  under the  Common Data Service  connector. Once you add this ...

I have come across a requirement to trigger flow when a record is updated and one of the fields contains data. We can achieve this using condition action . But there is a better way to do it using   Trigger Condition   setting in Power Automate and   functions  provided by the  Workflow Definition Language . Here are the steps. Step 1 :   Navigate to settings area. Step 2 :   Go to   Trigger Condition   and click on   Add Step 3 : Add condition to check if field contains data. Like this , multiple conditions can be added. And we can even use expressions like   and,or   to check multiple conditions. For more information about ...

No matter how great we are in programming , sometimes our code has errors. They may occur because of our mistakes, an unexpected user input, an erroneous server response, and for a thousand other reasons. So handling these exceptions is very important . Anyone who has even a little experience with programming knows the   “try – catch”   to handle these exceptions. The same approach can be used in Power Automate / Flow to handle exceptions. In fact, we have a template in Power Automate templates gallery and it can be used straight away. https://flow.microsoft.com/en-us/galleries/public/templates/e8e028c6df7b4eb786abdf510e4f1da3/try-catch-and-finally-template/ ...

Recently , I have come across this issue with Power Automate while I am trying to create a record using “Create a new record ” action with Common Data Service(Current environment) connector based on some trigger. I am not doing any complex stuff, just creating a quote line record and referencing a quote record. Referencing records is as simple as using dynamic content and populating it to a lookup attribute right !!! No, its not. Let’s see. I just run the flow with the above setup and flow run got failed with  “Resource not found for the segment ‘c262238e-fc89-ea12-ba11-000d3ab615df'” After some digging , found the cause. The new   CDS ( ...

With recent situation where social distancing is playing a major role handling the pandemic, businesses are focusing even more on process automation than ever before. Drones, robots, autonomous vehicles are contributing in the businesses and we have seen numerous cases where drones were used for goods delivery, robots were used to tighten the social lock down in streets etc. Software based Robotic Process Automation is emerging now on a rapid pace and companies like Microsoft has already been   investing   a lot in Robotic ...

Scenario Are you also tired of all the things you have to take care of when you are out of office for holidays, illness, etc? We recently built a solution within Power Apps and Power Automate that allows you to simply select the start/enddate of your absence and your preferred substitute for that time and the App and Flows do all the necessary work for you while you can sit back and relax :) So far our solution manages the following: Posting a clickable Message in MS Teams to your preferred substitute via Power Automate and sending back the response to the requestor. Create a calendar-entry in Outlook Create entries in Dynamics 365 for every day, ...

So if you reach maximum connection limit and are thinking how to delete/remove one. ...
