Access Just the Right Data for Portfolio Decisions
Microsoft Power Automate is a service that allows the creation of automated workflows between different tools. It acts as a connector between thousands of tools. With Power Automate, you can easily get the data you need into Meisterplan, saving time and avoiding duplicate effort.
Your project teams already manage their work and collaborate using their favorite tools, such as Smartsheet or MS Project. Connecting those tools to Meisterplan through Microsoft Power Automate enables easy access to the data without duplicate maintenance. You can be sure that you have visibility into the right data from multiple sources to make informed portfolio decisions.
Some of the most popular Power Automate Integrations include:
Easily Create and Decide on New Projects
Simplify your demand management by connecting new projects and initiatives through Meisterplan’s Power Automate Connector. Next, use Meisterplan to evaluate and prioritize those demands against other new or active projects.
- Support project intake by connecting new project initiatives from tools like MS Sharepoint

- Use Meisterplan to ensure your portfolio focuses on the highest priorities
Quickly Update Project and Resource Data

- Update project data including financial data and milestones
- Keep your resource planning data up to date by syncing roles, resources and allocations
- Include absences and role capacity in your updates
Meisterplan gives me an overview of our global IT project landscape. A step-by-step implementation enabled us to cope with the complexity of our project portfolio. When setting up our PMO, we oriented ourselves strongly towards Lean PPM.
Everyday is a Meisterplan Day. Thanks to the simplicity of the product and its excellent usability the Project Portfolio Process PPM was holistically optimized and strategic decisions for projects ensured. Eager to further enhance maturity of PPM with future releases of the product.
I give Meisterplan an A+ for the experience of modifying the project timeline and resourcing. Consider this model if you’ve struggled to forecast resource capacity using spreadsheets or large commercial tools.
Meisterplan opened our eyes to resource bottlenecks and new portfolio solutions.
There is no other product that does what Meisterplan does in terms of portfolio management and resource management without unessential extra features. If there were another product that does what Meisterplan does, I would have found it, because I tried them all.
We successfully run 400 projects and 20 programs in our portfolio with Meisterplan. Although many have tried, you can’t manage that many programs and resources in Excel templates. But you can with Meisterplan.
One of our problems was being able to show everybody our portfolio plan. Now we see all our projects we would talk about, graphically depicted. You can see their durations and when you scroll down, you can see the team. Maybe these two projects are significant and they're taking two resources each for this period of time. We can now see how much room is in the capacity bucket that we have left to fill. From here we can look at our options. Using Meisterplan to do that helps us show our work and provide transparency.
