Flownaut (Super User) Requirements

Hey Power Automate Fans!

Every six months, an assessment is made and an offer is extended to the top-contributing members of the Power Automate Community to join the Flownaut crew! The Power Automate Community Flownauts are our community Super Users that are here all the time to help you out! Here we are explaining the details and specifying how YOU could become nominated to become a Microsoft Power Automate Community Super User! (a.k.a. Flownaut!)

It's no secret that our awesome Power Automate Online Community is growing. And over the past 2 years, as a whole, we have all really formed what it means to be a contributing member of the Power Automate Online Community. Along with that, our top-contributing community members have really shown what it means to give back to this growing community in a hugely meaningful way. When creating Super User program itself and then the nomination requirements, we feel it's also necessary to mention what it really means to be a Power Automate Community Super User (Flownaut). 

Achieving this is truly not an easy accomplishment. This title is reserved for only those who are constantly displaying their commitment and dedication to this online community by being here during any time that they can spare to help answer new questions being posted and to help find solutions. Community members who are titled Flownauts are the few and the proud that have enough room in their big hearts and their busy schedules to come to the Power Automate community as often as they can to be there for the place that has been there for them so many times before. Offering your time and attention to help others learn out of the goodness of your heart is an amazing feeling, and this is what makes a Flownaut. Read more about what it takes to be a Flownaut here.

All regular Microsoft Power Automate Community Members that are NOT a Microsoft Employee in any way are eligible to become a Power Automate Community Super User ( Flownaut). Community contributions that count towards your Super User nomination are described but not limited to the following community contributions.

  • Authoring Accepted Solutions
  • Receiving Kudos
  • Posting Community Blog Articles
  • Posting Cookbook Submissions
  • Posting Video Gallery Submissions

So, now you have an idea of what it takes to become a Super User, you know the amount of passion and allegiance that it takes. Once you've achieved the required amount of contributions, community management will send a message to your Power Automate community profile and you will be asked to join the Flownaut crew! Now, I'd like to explain about how when you can give back to the Power Automate Community at a rate that qualifies you as a Super User, the Power Automate Community will begin to give back to you in meaningful ways as well! Here are just some of the awesome special privileges that Power Automate Community Flownauts are granted along with their Flownaut title:

  • Flownauts get an awesome Flownaut badge right in their Community Username!
  • Flownauts have extra permissions within the Community to Accept Solutions on any posts!
  • There's a Monthly Flownaut Meeting hosted by Me(Gabriel) where you get the first glance at Power Automate Community Updates
  • When Flownauts give "Kudos", they are worth 2 Kudos each!!
  • Flownauts participate in special Flownaut Missions that are chances to compete with other Flownauts for great prizes!
  • Flownauts get their own private discussion board within the Power Automate Community!

Flownaut Tiers

The Super User tiered ranking system is being implemented to allow for more growth and fairness throughout the Flownaut program. This will allow us to remove and add new Super Users as well as move them up or down in ranking every six months based on a community contribution points system developed by the Power Platform Community Management Teams.

This basically means that there is now three tiers of the program and the lowest tier offers a chance at participating in the Flownaut program to many more members as now any community member just needs to simply gain a certain number of community contribution points over six months to be offered a spot in the lower tier of the Super User program!

The three tiers will exist as follows for regular and dual Super Users:

  • Super User (Lower Tier)          
  • Super User II (Middle Tier)
  • Super User III (Upper Tier)
  • Dual Super User (Lower Tier)          
  • Dual Super User II (Middle Tier)
  • Dual Super User III (Upper Tier)
