Introduction to UI flows

UI flows brings Robotic Process Automation (RPA) capabilities to Power Automate. You can use UI flows to automate repetitive tasks in Windows and Web applications. UI flows records and plays back user interface actions (clicks, keyboard input, etc.) for applications that don't have easy-to-use or complete APIs available.


You can jump right in:

UI flows or connectors?

With Power Automate, you can automate both modern applications with APIs, or legacy applications with incomplete or missing APIs. You can even combine legacy apps, modern apps, and manual processes in a single automation.

Application type Feature Benefits
Modern apps with APIs Connectors High reliability with software UI updates
Legacy apps (no APIs) UI flows Easy to create. Works if no API is available.

You will find your UI flows alongside automated, button, scheduled, and business process flows in My flows.
