Supercharge Your SharePoint Experience: Automate Repetitive Tasks with Power Automate

Aug 21, 2023 | SharePoint


In today’s fast-paced digital landscape, time is of the essence, and every minute counts. For end users of SharePoint, repetitive and manual tasks can quickly eat up valuable time that could be better spent on more strategic activities. However, a powerful ally is poised to come to the rescue: Power Automate! With its incredible automation capabilities, Power Automate empowers SharePoint end users to conquer mundane tasks and unleash their productivity potential. In this blog post, we’ll explore how end users can harness the power of Power Automate to automate repetitive tasks and streamline their SharePoint experience.

Say Goodbye to Manual Document Approval

The endless back-and-forth of document approval can be a real productivity killer. With Power Automate, end users can create automated approval workflows that route documents to the right stakeholders for review and approval. Imagine uploading a document to your SharePoint library, and the approval process is set in motion automatically. No more chasing down approvers or wasting time on follow-up emails.

Keep Track of Important Updates

Staying up to date with the latest changes in SharePoint can be challenging, especially in busy team environments. Power Automate can help end users receive timely notifications whenever new documents are uploaded, files are modified, or comments are added. Be the first to know about critical updates, ensuring that you’re always in the loop and ready to collaborate effectively.

Organise Files Automatically

A cluttered SharePoint library can hinder productivity and create confusion.  End users can set up automated processes to organise files automatically based on specific criteria, such as file type, metadata, or keywords. Watch as your documents find their rightful places, leaving you with a neatly organised and easy-to-navigate library.

Never Miss a Follow Up

Tracking tasks and deadlines can be overwhelming, especially when juggling multiple projects. With Power Automate, end users can create personalised task reminders and notifications. Whether it’s a pending assignment or an upcoming deadline, Power Automate ensures that you never miss an important follow-up again.

Seamlessly Integrate with Microsoft 365

Power Automate is a true team player, effortlessly integrating with other Office 365 apps. End users can leverage Power Automate to automate repetitive tasks not only in SharePoint but also across Microsoft Teams, OneDrive, Outlook, and more. The possibilities are endless, and your productivity is bound to soar.


As the saying goes, “work smarter, not harder,” and Power Automate is the ultimate tool to make that happen for SharePoint end users. By automating repetitive tasks, you can reclaim valuable time and focus on what truly matters—achieving your goals and driving success.
