Newbie question - Power automate flow vs Dataverse Dataflow for repeated CSV file import to Dataverse


I am reasonably familiar with Power automate, but dabbling in Dataverse. On a daily basis we receive CSV files which we want to import to a Dataverse table. I started looking at powerautomate to do this, but then noticed Dataverse Dataflows.

 

For a simple regular repeated task such as importing a csv file, what do people recommend as the best tool? What are the pros and cons?  Can a Dataverse Dataflow be scheduled or triggered on a regular basis like a powerautomate flow?

 

Thanks, Simon

You will probably get more, and also more detailed, reposnses posting this on the powerautomate boards as well. That way you get opinions from both sides of that coin
