Millions of users around the world know and love Dynamics 365. It is the most extensive model-driven application globally, capable of supporting a range of business processes and requirements. For many organizations, only a subset of employees needs to access the full spectrum of features it provides. For these users, a Power App is a great way to meet a business requirement that is smaller in scope. As an example, Dynamic Consultants Group uses an...

We’ve had a focus on Power Apps content this week at the Dynamic Consultants Group blog. First, we covered the difference between a model-driven and Canvas app. Then we wrote about some exciting new mixed-reality capabilities that will be available for public preview in May 2020.  Microsoft has invested time and effort into Power Apps, and we see the beginnings of what is possible with this platform. A few months ago, we showcased a custom Expense Tracker app,...

It can be agreed upon that all organizations are wired differently, even if they share the same industry. While this statement is true, most companies will still face similar challenges. One of the biggest problems that leadership can run into is how to take important data and proactively use it to guide successful business outcomes. Microsoft has provided three companies that act as examples of how to effectively use insights to solve challenges unique to their businesses. TruGreen, AEP Energy, and the American Red Cross use the formula...

The more I get to work with Microsoft Power Automate (RIP Flow), the more impressed I am. Power Automate’s ability to create and move data in a way that would traditionally require a developer is going to make a huge impact. For now, Power Automate is going to be dependent on developers for some of D365’s more complex functionality (such as calling actions and executing retrieve multiples). Still, there’s plenty that power users can do now with Power Automate that they wouldn’t have been able to prior to Power Automate. ...

During Microsoft Ignite 2019, key changes were announced. One of the biggest revelations was that Microsoft Flow had been renamed to Power Automate. Microsoft explained that the reasoning behind this update is because they want the software’s title to better align with the overall Power Platform. Aside from the unexpected name change, several major updates for the Power Platform were announced as well, unlocking new possibilities for users. Here are the five features we find blog–worthy:   1. Robotic Process Automation (RPA)  Hands...

Last month, several new features were introduced into Microsoft’s Data Integration capabilities within PowerApps. This empowered users to connect, transform, and combine data from a range of sources and load it into the Common Data Service. From there, the data can be used to create apps, automate flows, and produce analytics. I am going to outline the improvements within data integration below. Here’s a list of everything that is new: – Data Integration is now...
