    Great video! Thanks again for everything you do. I get so much use out of your tutorials. For this one, I guess a big part of the work will be analysing where there are repetitive tasks to automate. At least there are lots of things for regular flow. Do you have recommendations for Power BI vids? I’m having a Dickens of a time understanding what it is.

    Excellent video, great job introducing the program, showing us how to install it and how to start using it. I’ll go ahead and install it today and will try to creat a similar flow. Thank you very much. Keep up the good work you are doing!

    WOW! April thanks so much for sharing a real world example. 5 years ago I was wishing a "Macro Recorder" existed for my desktop to save me countless tedious hours of work. Now it's here!! I hope you make a full series on this (given this topic keeps trending LOL.

    Thanks! Would you happen to know if the recording steps get confused or get blocked by Google when it senses that a robotic process is trying to log in to an account? I want to create a scenario where 'when a Dataverse contact is created then create a Google contact'. I know you can get Flow to do this, but, the existing connectors for Google contacts don't allow you to edit the contact. So, I want to record steps to look up the contact in google contacts, delete it and then recreate it. Oh how I would love a connector that has the ability to delete or edit Google contacts. Thanks for your great video and for any advice you can share around my initial authentification question and any other simpler way you might suggest for me to make progress with Google contacts.

    I work in healthcare field and there are so many things, we can automate – you mentioned that it is for individual or personal use but what if we have to use in Corporate, can we use it or upgrade to per user premium license $40/month – which should also help cloud work flow. i did some reading and in order for the cloud work flows, we need to instal on premise gateway. In the next session can you show us an e.g using cloud work flows to connecting to power automate desktop through premise gateway and running un attended robotic power automate task

    Looks like it has great potential but it not an intuitive as the UI is nice. Also, the web-recorder feel really buggy, requiring tons of workflow editing for really simple point and click.
