Capability Comparison

Checkbox’s no code platform makes adoption easy for teams of all sizes. Automate all your manual work with more speed, less confusion and better results.

Design Experience


Drag & drop visual design tools make it easy to visualize and automate even the most sophisticated processes without code.

Power Automate

The design canvas can quickly become overwhelming with more sophisticated workflows and often requires scripting/formula building for individual steps.

Conditional Logic


Logic input field autosuggests and autocompletes variable names and operators and assists citizen developers in writing logic expressions.

Power Automate

It is difficult to build business rules and logic. Conditional logic often need multiple MS products to be used (e.g. Forms + Power Automate + Power BI)

Document Generation


Our workflows can handle multiple dynamic documents in PDFs and DOCX format from templates configured on Microsoft Word.

Power Automate

Limited options available for simple Word document templates with added complexity.

Form Building


Easy for business users to build responsive forms in a drag-and-drop designer. Possible for business users to build logic into forms.

Power Automate

Not designed for a business user. Power Apps offers some information capture ability but anything beyond simple forms requires specialist/ developer knowledge.

Process Management


With Checkbox, teams can fully understand, map, and manage their enterprise processes. This drives process visibility, collaboration and accountability.

Power Automate

An end to end workflow needs to be designed and configured on separated tools of the 365 ecosystem such as Visio, Dataverse, Automate

Process Duration


There is no automatic process termination by Checkbox. Processes can run from seconds to years based on your business requirements.

Power Automate

Power Automate terminates every process in a 30 day timeout. Logic apps run for 12 months but require developer knowledge and additional Azure expense.



Pricing is per workflow. It is predictable, transparent and will not increase as adoption or usage increases.

Power Automate

Pricing is variable and can quickly become complex with new users, usage or connecting to non Microsoft business systems or using premium connectors.
