Power Automate Desktop for Access developers

Ynte Jan Kuindersma

IMPORTANT: This presentation is at 10:30 AM Mountain Time

Power Automate Desktop (PAD) is now included free of charge with Windows 10. It is one of Microsoft's tools to enable the "Citizen Developer” to automate tasks in a low-code manner. This session shows what PAD is, and what it means for the work of professional (Access…) developers.

  • What is it? History, installation, cost
  • What can it do? Overview of the actions list, functionality, included toolset
  • How does it work? Examples for automating tasks, including Access and SQL database tasks
  • Review of functions relevant for Access developers:
    • Automation of Windows applications and website actions
    • Office and database actions
    • Automation of Access actions
    • Test automation for Access applications
