Since Power Automate is so powerful that you can creatively use it to improve your productivity at work. Here’s an example of how you can utilize a scenario where you need a quick checklist to make sure you respond all important emails for the day.
- You’ll need to create an Automated Power Automate and select the trigger as Office 365 Outlook. Select ‘When a new email arrived (V3)’ from the same and make sure you only select the High Importance marked emails
- Next step, create a To-Do Item. Select the List you have created. In my case, I created a separate list called ‘Respond Important Emails’
And the step to configure the To-Do List item should be like this –
In the above picture, I’ve made sure I select the correct List I want to create a To-Do in.And to give myself some time, I’ve added a reminder time of 2 hours from the time this Flow/Power Automate will run i.e. when the email will come in –
How it works
Now, when an Important email will arrive in my Inbox as below –
Power Automate will create a To-Do in my created List
And it will look like this –
Also, the reminder is set to remind me 2 hours post the time the To-Do item was created. Just in case I’m into something else, I’d set myself a reminder.
Hope this helps! And you can use your creativity to improve your productivity!
