Desktop Automation for Streamlining your Workflow (Windows only)
1

I'm an IT guy, and over the years I've seen lots of different desktop/macro environments (yes, I still miss my Amiga). Most of these workflow automation tools are either expensive or too simplistic.

Microsoft has just released their Power Automate Desktop for free (it was previously $180/yr). If you've used IFTTT, then you'll have the basic idea.... only PAD is really, really full featured.

There are lots of YouTube videos: https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=power+automate+desktop

Here's some general comments that have an enterprise hue to them, because PAD is frequently deployed only in enterprises: https://www.trustradius.com/products/microsoft-power-automate/reviews

My intention is to use it in my photography workflow. I realize that (1) it's only for Windows and (2) it's a bit complicated. But, if you have some computer skills, this little tool is going to make complex, repetitive tasks much, much simpler.

Cheers
