We need to talk about... Power Platform Release Wave 1 for 2024... Power Automate

Today I am taking you through the features and functionality we can expect to see released between October 2023 and March 2024 for Power Automate.

The PDF file also includes information about Power Apps, Power Automate, Power BI, Power Pages, Power Virtual Agents, Microsoft Dataverse, Microsoft Power Platform governance and administration, and data integration.

The Microsoft Power Platform features coming in the 2024 release wave 1 have been summarized in a separate release plan as well as a downloadable PDF 

Copilot for Process Mining

Copilot for Power Automate process mining provides insights and personalised recommendations to help users through their processes. These insights provide key details on the duration of steps in the process, areas to rework, bottlenecks, and recommendations on automation to help eliminate inefficiencies. The below screenshot shows copilot combining with this feature to help query and analyse the results.

Automate with ease using the AI Recorder

This a very exciting feature, titled in this release as AI Recorder. AI Recorder in Power Automate for desktop is aimed at allowing users to simply record and explain their tasks using their voice and showing a task. The feature should not only save time but also lead to improved productivity of the automation themselves.

The AI Recorder interprets voice, mouse movements, and screen sharing to create a desktop flow. Shown below in an advanced preview of the feature.

Cancelling all Cloud Flows

This feature helps to reduce incidents and feedback for the limited number of flows that users can resubmit and cancel on the My flows page in Power Automate.

Before this update, you were limited to cancelling 20 runs per flow at a time. This was too restrictive as some users may need to be able to cancel more at a time. This feature now enables you to cancel as many flow runs as you'd like.

Power Automate visual in a Power BI report

With Power Automate visual, you can run an automated flow from a Power BI report. Furthermore, the executed flow can be data contextual, passing in dynamic data based on the filters you set.

When you create a Power Automate visual in a Power BI report, your users can run an automated flow, just by selecting a button in your report. The flow can be data contextual, meaning that the flow inputs can be dynamic, based on the filters the users set.


Create desktop flows using natural language with copilot

The copilot functionality in Power Automate for desktop offers a similar interface to that of Power Apps. This makes the process of automation creation using natural language available to makers by providing instructions in plain English, eliminating the need for algorithmic or pseudocode knowledge.

Hope you all enjoyed this post on the Power Automate Release Wave 1 for 2024 updates I will continue this series with some additional content specifically related to the remainder of the Power Platform in coming weeks. Take Care, Speak Soon!
