Personal Budgets, RPA and Earthquakes?

Personal Budgets, RPA and Earthquakes?

As the Power Automate connector sector grows, so do the myriad of possibilities.

It’s not surprising then that these three new additions address such disparate categories as budgeting, robot process automation and a shaking earth. Let’s look!

Personal Budget Automation

You Need a Budget

The You Need a Budget app can help users avoid debt or get out of it by creating a personal budget. The connector has loads of actions to help you automate including:

  • Create a new account.
  • Create a single transaction or multiple transactions. 
  • Get a single budget with all related entities (a full budget export).
  • Get a single budget month or all budget months.
  • Get a list of budgets with summary information.
  • Get settings for a budget by ID.
  • Get authenticated user information.
  • Get all accounts, or a single account by ID
  • Get a single category or a single category for a specific budget month.
  • Get all categories grouped by category group.
  • Update a category for a specific month.
  • Get a single payee or single payee location.
  • Get all payees or all payee locations.
  • Get all payee locations for a specified payee.
  • Get all transactions for a specified account, category, or payee.
  • Get all scheduled transactions.
  • Get a single transaction or single scheduled transaction by ID
  • Get budget transactions.
  • Get all transactions for a specified account, category, or payee.
  • Update a single transaction.
  • Update multiple transactions, by id or import_id.
  • Import available transactions on all linked accounts for the given budget.

This is a really good start for budgeting, though I’m not sure whether a non-tech individual would know to look for this handy tool.

Where’s Your Robot?


When your robotic processes are down, you’ll probably want a list of which ones are the culprits. For robot process automation, the Yarado connector lets users get a list of down robots and tasks that belong to their organization, and/or schedule a single task run. It’s one of at least eight Power Automate connectors that we’ve identified for robot process automation.

RPA connectors in Power Automate

If you’re already using a Yarado product, you may want to take a look. Otherwise, there are other Power Automate connectors of this type with more to offer.

Whether your needs are around budgeting, RPAs or to gain insight about the earth moving beneath your feet, there’s a Power Automate connector for you. However, with so many Power Automate connectors from which to choose, you might want to ask our experts which ones will benefit you the most through automation so you can get back to doing what you do best.
