What is Power Automate Flow Template? How to create a Power Automate flow from a template?

Power Automate is a great tool for creating automated tasks such as sending reminder email, document approval, etc. Now most of the time a Flow is created and used within the same team/organization. But if in any case a user needs to share a flow configuration to other team/organization then they might have the permission to do it. In these scenario, you can create a template of your Power Automate Flow and then share it as needed. The recipient can download the template and create a flow from that base.

To create a Template, navigate to the flow page. Open the flow for which you want to create the template for. On the top select the option, export. Give it a name and select export. Follow the images below to understand better.
