Out of the blue
Power Automate trials are getting better support for both attended and unattended scenarios.
Multi-table lookups (also sometimes known as Polymorphic Lookups) allow the creation of a lookup in one table that looks up records in multiple other tables at once. This provides much greater flexibility in retrieving data within your environments. With multi-table lookups, you can perform a lookup on 2 or more tables at the same time and locate the record you want from the referenced tables.
Microsoft announced the general availability of several AI Builder capabilities, new additions which will improve our document automation capabilities, as well as some language and geographic coverage extensions.
