New Month: New Power Automate Connectors
Happy June and Happy Pride!
Eleven new Power Automate connectors landed just before U.S. Memorial Day and the unofficial start of the summer vacationing season. So I’m playing catch up to bring you details about the latest ones. Since there are so many here, I kept each review short and to the point. Let’s look!
You can use the Alkymi connector’s trigger to kick off automation anytime an event happens in the Alkymi system. Alternatively, you can take a variety of actions within other flows. There are a bunch of good use cases for document management (uploading, downloading and listing all documents), improving data accuracy, taking immediate action with alerts via Teams, Slack and connectors, and more.
Impressive! Four and a half stars
These are the same designed connectors as the main Asite connector, but one is for the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) region users, while the other is for United Arab Emirates (UAE) users. Asite connects two systems for file exchange with triggers that upload or download files between them. It’s relatively high cost is geared towards government, construction and infrastructure industries.
Three stars each
Makers describe the Bttn ONE connector as, “The magical bttn that automates your business, improves your customer experience, and so much more…,” but I am inclined to say, “Use your bt.tn device to trigger a Power Automate flow using this poorly documented trigger.” Truly mystifying.
Attention Project Managers: If you have a Cascade Enterprise plan, you can use this connector to create, delete and update your strategies and plans via goals, tasks and risks. Right now, as it lacks a trigger, you can’t kick off a workflow, but you can use these actions to enhance your automations.
Great start. Four stars
Is security management more your thing? If so, you’ll find that the Cyberday connector, like the ancient hunter-gatherer helps to bring information from all of your assets to Cyberday into what they call a ‘System” so that the asset information and the safeguards you’ve planned to deploy live in the same cave…I mean place! It’s two actions let you either create a System or retrieve a list of Systems in your Cyberday account.
The Hunter service provides you with email templates to help warm up your leads and convert them into business. Use the connector to find cold email addresses and take additional actions with other connectors.
Use the independently published NHTSA vPIC connector to gather information on vehicles and their specifications from The NHTSA Product Information Catalog Vehicle Listing API known colloquially as vPIC.
Using a single action, you can use this connector to get records from Progressus Advanced Projects Data, an add-on to Microsoft Dynamics On-Premise and Dynamics 365 Solutions.
Political pundits and interested citizens can benefit from using the independently published ProPublica Campaign Finance connector which easily complements the ProPublica Congress connector which we recently reviewed. This connector lets you delve deeper with its 32 actions to get details about specific types of filings, filings for a specific date and a summary of financial information in each filing of campaign finance electronic filings within ProPublica.
Three and a half stars
For Microsoft 365 users, the VineForce connector has two actions which will let you create a task, or alert a user in a remote working environment.
Top three among the most recent list of new Power Automate connectors are Alkymi, Cascade, and NHTSA vPIC. But these are just a few of the 726 connectors that you can use to automate your business. It’s exciting to check them out. I can’t wait to see what’s next! What’s your next project? Tell us now.
