3 New Connectors Join Power Automate: Aletheia, HrFlow.ai & Powell Teams
Three new Power Automate connectors were added to the Flow universe over the weekend: Aletheia, HrFlow.ai and Powell Teams. These Microsoft-certified connectors offer solutions for the finance industry, human resources and Microsoft Teams. Let’s meet each of these connectors, talk about potential use cases and offer our reviews on each.
I really like this connector. It has a new, unique offering in Power Automate bringing some really interesting data to your flows. First of all, this connector is free to use, which is always a bonus. Use the Aletheia connector to access APIs for stock data, insider training details, earnings analysis and SEC filings. Kick off a flow when a new filing is filed with the SEC, or take a number of actions on all financial data included. This is a unique connector and we like how it solves a new use case!
Additionally, their documentation is out-of-this-world fantastic. Here are two, clear step-by-step examples on some use cases they’ve seen:
- Get stock data in a Canvas App & in Power Automate
- Configure an End of Day Watchlist Update in Excel
- The site describes other use cases here, with “tutorial coming soon” on each!
5 stars! And really impressive documentation.
This connector combines AI with human resources in one specific use case: real-time processing of HR documents. We hope to see additional actions added in the future to expand on use cases. For now, the small scope and applicability of this connector leaves us wanting more.
3 stars for a solid build, but limited use cases.
This one confuses me. Powell Teams is an app you can pay for and add to your Microsoft Teams environment that “allows you to manage the governance of your teams (creation / update of your teams)” (quote from the Microsoft documentation for this connector). I’m unsure what this connector allows you to do beyond the standard Teams connector, apart from having actions to list and get Powell Teams templates. The company’s documentation on the API directed me to a Q&A that didn’t clear any of this up for me. What I really want to know is: if you’re a current customer of Powell Teams (or if you’re in your free trial period), can you use similar actions on the free Microsoft Teams connector versus using this premium connector? I’ll reach out to the folks at Powell Software to learn more – and will update this blog after I do!
