The new “Automate work” button in Excel Online, powered by Power Automate, has made it easier than ever to automate tasks and run processes efficiently from anywhere. This feature extends the capabilities of Power Automate by providing access to pre-built templates and allowing users to build workflows quickly and easily within Excel Online. This button replaces the “Automate a Task” button in Excel Online. Previously, the “Automate a Task” button only allowed users to select templates for Office Scripts, which would then take them to the Power Automate portal to build a flow. But now, with just a few clicks, you can automate repetitive tasks, reduce errors, and boost productivity, all without ever leaving Excel!
