What is Business Process Automation?

Business process automation helps organizations improve efficiency by leveraging technology to automate repetitive tasks. It reduces costs, enhances efficiency, and expedites processes.

Does Your Business Need SharePoint Automation?

Consider these signs to see if SharePoint automation workflows can benefit you:

  • High volume of repetitive tasks
  • Multiple people involved in tasks
  • Tight deadlines
  • Tasks affecting other processes
  • Work involving compliance and audits

How to Leverage SharePoint for Workflow Automations?

SharePoint workflows can automate a wide range of tasks, from collecting approvals to tracking routine procedures. Here's how to leverage SharePoint and other Microsoft 365 tools for automation:

1. Create SharePoint Alerts


SharePoint alerts notify you of changes to files or folders. Users can easily set up alerts for lists, libraries, folders, or specific list items.

2. Enable Content Approval


Power Automate allows you to enable content approval for sensitive documents in SharePoint libraries. This ensures documents requiring approval are not visible until approved.

3. Use Built-in SharePoint Workflows


Built-in SharePoint workflows address common challenges like approvals, feedback, digital signatures, task management, and content publishing.  These pre-built workflows automate tasks like gathering signatures or document approvals, eliminating manual burden.

4. Build Flows Using Power Automate Flows


Power Automate lets you set up workflows for lists and libraries within SharePoint. It automates common tasks across SharePoint, other Microsoft 365 services, and third-party services.

Here's what you can do:

  • Automate data extraction: Extract, verify, and populate data from spreadsheets, PDFs, or other documents.
  • Automate document processing: Extract information from forms, PDFs, emails, and other sources to generate or share documents quickly.
  • Automate workflows: Automate a series of actions, procurement process, employee onboarding, employee offboarding, travel request and even customized workflow.
  • Automate the flow of critical information: Save, manage, and share important documents and business info. Use connectors to automatically fetch email attachments, tweets, work tasks, and more.
  • Automate manual work and third-party processes: Eliminate manual steps with a library of tools and connectors within SharePoint.
  • Automate typical work processes: Automate tasks like sending emails, creating tasks, and sending messages to your team.

5. Use SharePoint Designer

SharePoint Designer workflows manage simple to complex business processes. They can automate both business application processes and human collaborative processes.

6. Use Visual Studio

For complex workflows, Visual Studio offers state machine workflows that allow event-driven modelling. While requiring technical expertise, it offers flexibility and customization for developers.
