From Flowcharts to Action: Design in Visio and Execute in Power Automate

The number one reason people use Visio is to create flowcharts or process maps. However, taking the next step – moving from a diagram of process steps to executing those steps – has been a challenge, at best. That’s all changed with integration between Visio and Microsoft Power Automate. It’s true that Automate has its own visual layout tool, but it’s not Visio! Why not use the best-in-class product for each purpose: lay out the process in Visio and then take action in Automate? Attend this session to see live demonstrations of this important new integration in the Microsoft M365 product suite.


You will learn to:

• Design process flows in Visio

• Export flowcharts to Power Automate

• Execute Visio-designed processes using Power Automate
