Simplify Reporting: Automating Document Generation with Power Apps and Power Automate

Thursday, August 15, 10:40 am – 11:50 am (70 minute session) ROOM 207A

In this session, we will explore how to modernize the common process of weekly reporting by automating document creation using Microsoft Power Apps and Power Automate. We will follow a real-life use case of a client who aimed to streamline their cumbersome, manual reporting process.

We will demonstrate how Power Apps and Power Automate were used to improve this process:

  • Standardized Data Entry with Power Apps: We’ll show an example of a user-friendly submission app in Power Apps, standardizing the input format and eliminating the need for multiple templates.
  • Workflows with Power Automate: We’ll create workflows in Power Automate that:
    Collect and format submissions from the app
    Consolidate submissions into a single report template
    Generate a report in multiple formats (docx, pdf, and xlsx)
  • Document Storage in SharePoint Online: We’ll show how the workflow can save the generated reports to support further manual editing

By automating their weekly reporting process, the client was able to save hours of manual work while improving accuracy and consistency across reports.
