For browsers, use the most up-to-date version compatible with your operating system: Microsoft Edge, Safari, Chrome, or Firefox. The Power Automate for desktop app is also available for the Windows 10 and 11 operating systems.

  • No, Power Automate is a cloud service. However, you can securely connect to your own on-premises services through its on-premises data gateway.

  • More than 1,000 prebuilt, certified connectors are available for Power Automate, including popular services like Dynamics 365, SAP, and Salesforce. You can also build a custom connector to any cloud application and have it certified for sharing broadly with the Power Automate community. To extend to a non-API service, use RPA to connect to systems.

  • Templates are prebuilt flows for popular and common scenarios. To use one, you just need to have access to the services in the template and to input any required settings.

  • Yes. You can add co-workers or groups in your organization as owners so they can edit and manage the flows. Or, for flows that can be run manually, you can grant other people or groups in your organization permission to run them.
