Automation options in Office 365 presentation

Here’s the presentation I did for Office 365 Saturday here in Australia in various locations. It focused on the automation options that are available to you in Office.


You can also find the slides for download.

In the session I talk about Office macros, SharePoint Designer, third party options like If This Then That and Zapier. I also focus on Microsoft Flow and dip into some PowerShell.

In short, there are lots and lots of options when it comes to automating Office 365 and I feel more people should be taking advantage of them. Too many people are simply adding technology for technology’s sake and making their life harder. That is not what technology is for. Technology is designed to give you the freedom to do what you want not burden you with additional tasks.

Are you automating as much as you could? Hopefully, this presentation will inspire you to look more deeply at what is possible with a tool like Office 365.
