October 2023 update of Power Automate for desktop
We are happy to announce that the October 2023 update of Power Automate for desktop (version 2.37) has been released! You can download the latest release here.
New features and updates have been added, as described below.
Actions from four new cloud connectors have now been introduced
Excel Online for Business, Word Online for Business, OneNote for Business (in preview) and Microsoft Teams are the latest connectors that come down to Power Automate for desktop, with multiple operations now being available out of the box as native actions for desktop flows.
Some UI automation actions can now work in the background
The actions Click UI element in window and Populate text field in window now come with an additional parameter that allows you to simulate the corresponding action, so that it runs even if the element’s screen is in the background, without having to be focused.
The values of more variable types can now be edited during debugging
The values of List, Datatable, Datarow and Custom object variables can now be edited during debugging through the variable value window, when the flow is paused, so that users can perform tests and debug using their own values for these variable types.
Hoping that you will find the above updates useful, please feel free to provide your questions and feedback in the Power Automate Community. If you want to learn more about Power Automate Desktop, get started with the below resources:
