Hi @Suhaib 

 

You could sign into PAD with a work or school account. Please find below all the prerequisites:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-automate/ui-flows/setup#prerequisites

 

Regarding the error, could you share some more information? a screenshot of the error would also be helpful.

 

Thank you!

Good day.... I just want to know if POwer Automate Desktop has the capability to import task created  by Win Automation.   Rgds.

Hi @RodrigoEsquivel 

 

This feature would be very useful indeed.

 

The Power Automate Desktop team is currently working on a migration tool that will help us import a WinAutomation Process into PAD. The first version is going to be available within the following months.

 

I hope the above helps!

Thanks a lot for the response.

Dear Mr. Admin,

Well does desktop version supports personal accounts like mine?

and please do you know why testing the "I'll perform the trigger action" keeps waiting until it give "flow run time out..."

is that related to connection speed as an example ?

thanks in advance
