Unlocking Efficiency: Automate Your Egnyte Workflows with Microsoft Power Automate

The contemporary business landscape is progressively evolving into a realm of intricate complexity. Organizations employ an assortment of systems and tools to streamline processes, amplify productivity, optimize workflows, and abide by the constantly shifting industry norms and rigorous compliance benchmarks - all the while keeping an eye on cost efficiency. Achieving this can be a daunting task. Yet, the robotic process automation tool, Microsoft Power Automate (previously known as Microsoft Flow), empowers teams to automate monotonous tasks. Its user-friendly, low-code approach enhances productivity and saves substantial time.  

Microsoft Power Automate permits users to establish and automate more than 220 applications and services independently, removing the need for the development team's involvement. Egnyte, which is recognized as a highly qualified Microsoft Partner and Microsoft’s Cloud Storage Partner Program Plus (CSPP+) member due to its deep interoperability with Microsoft applications, has developed the Egnyte Connector in the Microsoft Power Automate application. This facilitates the automation of crucial workflows across diverse applications, freeing up valuable time of resources and enabling them to focus on key strategic initiatives, rendering higher value.

Key Functionalities:  

  • Streamline File Management: Create, upload, copy, and delete files and folders within Egnyte and other cloud storage providers (SharePoint, Google, etc.), eliminating the need for manual intervention, ensuring data remains organized and clutter-free. Additionally, synchronize files across different storage providers seamlessly. 
  • Enhance Data Security: Automate the file lock and unlock process by file id or path within workflows, ensuring sensitive information remains secure and protected, even as user activity increases.

  • Improve Data Discoverability: Automate the application of metadata tags via file identifier instead of time-consuming manual tagging for faster retrieval times, better organization, and a more efficient workflow.
