Improve your productivity in Excel for the web with Power Automate!
Published Oct 05 2023 09:00 AM 24K Views

We are excited to announce the new "Automate Work" button in Excel for the web, powered by Power Automate, making it easier to automate tasks and run processes efficiently from anywhere. The new "Automate Work" button replaces the "Automate a Task" button, extending Power Automate capabilities to Excel for the web by providing access to pre-built templates and allowing users to build workflows quickly and easily – within Excel for the web.


Getting started is easy!

For instance, you can automatically capture customer feedback from emails and store it in an Excel for the web worksheet using the "Monitor incoming emails to an alias in an Excel worksheet" template. With this template, businesses can keep track of customer feedback in one centralized location, making it easy to respond to customer needs and improve customer satisfaction.

Automate Work button in Excel for the web



The new "Automate Work" button is currently available in Excel for the web for users that have a commercial or EDU license that gives access to the Microsoft 365 office desktop apps (e.g., Office 365 E3 and E5 licenses)., and we are looking forward to bringing it to Windows desktop and Mac.


Please note that if you do not have the Automate tab in Excel for the web, your admin may have disabled the feature.
