Hi! I'm Japhlet Nwamu, a Gold Microsoft Learn Student Ambassador in Nigeria. I love talking about Power Platform and Artificial Intelligence. My focus is on Power Automate and Power Virtual Agents - two amazing tools that enable you explore and integrate the power of AI in your solutions.
Welcome to This Series! In this series, I'll show you some of the amazing solutions I have built with Power Automate and Power Virtual Agents and guide you through building yours. It's going to be fun! Let's Begin!
Back in February, we (Student Ambassadors in Nigeria) held Microsoft Mixed Reality Bootcamp 2021 - a 4weeks boot camp where participants got to learn and build Mixed Reality solutions. To support active participants throughout the boot camp, we sent out airtime vouchers. I was tasked with the responsibility of making this happen. We collaborated with chimoney.io to make this happen. With Chimoney, participants could redeem airtime via a unique link. Within a few days, we got the unique links we requested.
Now, we had to send out one unique redeem link to each participant. Sending out an email to each participant with their unique redeem link seemed like the best option, but it would be tedious, prone to error, and time-consuming, so I had to figure out an easy way to make it happen. Guess what? I decide to automate everything with Power Automate and it worked!
Power Automate is one of the tools that make up Microsoft’s low-code no-code development platform Power Platform. Formerly known as Microsoft Flow, Power Automate makes it possible for you to automate business processes. You can read more about it here. In this post, I would show you how I built the automated airtime disbursement system. Ready?
This flow saved me tons of hours of work and helped reduce errors if I tried to send out the links manually.

What solution would you like me to work on next with Power Automate? Let me know in the comment section and I’ll write a blog on it too.
