This blog post will navigate you through setting up and integrating Form Recognizer, Power Apps, and Power Automate for streamlined workflows. Regardless of your experience level, this step-by-step guide will empower you to enhance your2>workflow efficiency.

The Magic of Integration: Form Recognizer and Power Apps

This video illustrates how Microsoft Form Recognizer and Microsoft Power Apps can be combined to create a highly efficient system for processing documents. The linchpin of this system is FabSoft's Desktop Automation Driver. The process commences by submitting an invoice to the Desktop Automation Driver, selecting the Microsoft PowerApps workflow type, and configuring the document identifier field. The output file type is designated as PDF, and the destination URL field is filled with the HTTP post URL from the desired Microsoft PowerApps flow.

Setting Up the Workflow

The workflow setup process involves designating the OCR engine to Microsoft Azure Form Recognizer and copying the key and endpoint for the Azure Form Recognizer subscription. The pre-built invoice option is chosen for the model ID. Once Microsoft Form Recognizer is designated as the OCR engine, the data gathered by Form Recognizer can be utilized to populate the fields. The file name field is selected using the document text selection type, and the text source is switched to OCR text. This enables the user to drag the text field onto key document information intelligently gathered by Microsoft Form Recognizer.

Field Mapping and Data Population

Creating new fields and mapping them using the associated data variables from Microsoft Form Recognizer is straightforward and user-friendly. The workflow fields created are directly related to variables from the PowerApps flow, ensuring that the data mapped in the workflow configuration is accurately sent to the PowerApps flow. This ability to send information to Power Apps is helpful and creates a very efficient system.


In conclusion, integrating Microsoft Form Recognizer and Microsoft Power Apps within the FabSoft Desktop Automation Driver environment creates an extremely efficient document processing system that can save businesses immense time. Once a Desktop Automation Driver workflow is created, any document of the associated type can be rapidly processed with a click of a button.
