    Microsoft's blog post today (11/4/2019) announced new features to the Power Platform and also announced a change to the Microsoft Flow name. It is now called "Power Automate" to align with the naming within the Power Platform.

    Thanks for sharing. Technology just keeps changing, and even if it doesn't change, Microsoft changes the name. ;)

    I get the reason for the branding change, but Power Automate sounds so generic. Flow just sounds cooler...

    Don't worry. Microsoft will change the product's name again in a few months​. Just to keep us all confused!   ;-)

    Microsoft is now using a verb (automate) as a noun.  So if I used to solve a problem by building a Flow, do I now solve the same problem by building an Automate?
