M365 Changelog: (Updated) Select Lists templates include Power Automate flows
MC394930 — Updated July 28, 2022: Microsoft has updated the rollout timeline below. Thank you for your patience.
Lists ready-made templates are getting a boost. As part of our efforts to evolve Lists and enable more users to take advantage of automations, you now have the option to install pre-created Power Automate flows whenever you create a list from select list templates. The following templates will have reminder flows available to provision after you create your list: Work progress tracker, Content scheduler, and Recruitment tracker.
This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 88906.
When this will happen:
Microsoft will begin rolling out to Targeted Release in early July 2022 and expect to complete by mid-July 2022.
Microsoft will begin rolling out to Standard Release in mid-August 2022 (previously mid-July 2022) and expect to complete by end of August 2022 (previously end of July 2022).
How this will affect your organization:
List creators who create a list from the Work progress tracker template, Content scheduler template, or Recruitment tracker template will see a modal prompting them to install the included Power Automate flow after their list has been created. The reminder flow is an automated flow that runs on a schedule in the background, so it does not appear in the Lists menu.
Users with a Microsoft 365 E3 license, Microsoft E5 license, or Power Automate per-user plan can create and use the reminder flow that is included with select ready-made Lists templates.
- Users without either of the above licenses may sign up for a 30-day free trial of Power Apps in order to access the feature.
What you need to do to prepare:
You might want to notify your users about these new capabilities in list templates and update your training and documentation as appropriate.
- Create a business application from a list template
- Manage a flow that was created from a list template
- Overview of solution-aware flows
- Power Platform solution concepts
