Difference between CDS based Business Process Flow Designer and Power Automate Flows

Hi All,

 

I am quite new to Power Platform. What is the key difference between Business Process Flow Designer which is based on CDS entities and Power Automate flows? Will Power Automate replace CDS/MDA business process flow designer?

 

Thank you.

Sonam

Hi @sonam-tobgay 

 

The CDS workflows run synchronously while the Power Automate runs are asynchronous. Power Automate supports a number of connectors that can be linked to perform automation.

 

To get a more information about the details, you can refer to this link: https://saralagerquist.com/2020/03/10/compare-classic-workflows-to-power-automate-flows/

 

 

Hope this Helps!
