New releases: Power Automate Desktop client

Hi, I've built a new release notifier for the Power Automate Desktop client using cloud flows.

Not sure why Microsoft wasn't able to provide this functionality yet.

How do you use it? EDIT:  If you don't know what a RSS feed was like me, google it, and then it's easy. Add RSS plug-in to your browser and link the source. 

Thank you FraenK, well done!

The RSS feed? Just put it into Outlook or your preferred reader/downloader or create a cloud flow with a RSS trigger and HTTP download

Version 2.9.29.21133

Finally, includes at least an update notification!

Seems like that the built-in update notification doesn't really work!

Latest version: 2.11.51.21196

Still no release notes. 🙄

Hello Fraenk.  I spoke to a Microsoft support engineer today and this issue with the latest update, where the client do not detect that it's out of date,  is known and they have reported it to the devs. Hopefully, a fix will be made in the next release. 

Hey Daniel,

 

Indeed it will be fixed in our next release.

Thank you Frank for letting us know there is an update to download.  Unfortunately, they have not fixed the check for update function, which was not detecting the July update either.. ?  Manual download seems to be the only option. Do you have this issue as well ?Screenshot_10.png

Thought about the same. There is no fix mentioned in the blog and you can't test it with the latest version, because it is already the latest version. 😉

 

Just create a cloud flow with a RSS trigger and HTTP download using the feed url in the first post.

The fix is implemented in the August release as discussed above. Everyone prior to the August release, will get an update notification 1 week from now.

Why do we have to wait for 1 week and manually download and install it until then? Thought the tool is about automation?

Hey @fraenK 

I think that I haven't explained clearly what I wanted to say:

There was a bug with all previous versions (that supported the update notifications), resulting on showing the update message a week after the actual release. This bug got resolved in August's release, which means that the users that install the latest version, will get an update notification in September, as soon as the release lands.

However, the users that do not update, will get the same notification, a week later.
