Updated July 28, 2022: We have updated the rollout timeline below. Thank you for your patience.
Lists ready-made templates are getting a boost. As part of our efforts to evolve Lists and enable more users to take advantage of automations, you now have the option to install pre-created Power Automate flows whenever you create a list from select list templates. The following templates will have reminder flows available to provision after you create your list: Work progress tracker, Content scheduler, and Recruitment tracker. This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 88906.
When this will happen
We will begin rolling out to Targeted Release in early July 2022 and expect to complete by mid-July 2022.
We will begin rolling out to Standard Release in mid-August 2022 (previously mid-July 2022) and expect to complete by end of August 2022 (previously end of July 2022).
How this will affect your organization
List creators who create a list from the Work progress tracker template, Content scheduler template, or Recruitment tracker template will see a modal prompting them to install the included Power Automate flow after their list has been created. The reminder flow is an automated flow that runs on a schedule in the background, so it does not appear in the Lists menu.
Users with a Microsoft 365 E3 license, Microsoft E5 license, or Power Automate per-user plan can create and use the reminder flow that is included with select ready-made Lists templates.
- Users without either of the above licenses may sign up for a 30-day free trial of Power Apps in order to access the feature.

You might want to notify your users about these new capabilities in list templates and update your training and documentation as appropriate.
