Demos delivered in this session

  • List item filtering on modern pages with complex dynamic view formatting – make a list with topics and lengthy descriptions more readable and interactive.  Create 2 new views (list and gallery) for the same list. Gallery view for button like navigation (topics), and List view to create mini navigation – to move up/down through item descriptions.  Use “ID” attribute that links everything together with anchors.  Expose views on webpage.  All bowser - client-side with out-of-the-box formatting.

  • ProvisionGenie - a Teams provisioning engine on Power Apps and Azure Logic Apps – ProvisionGenie blends learning with the provisioning process. Elegantly and non-technically prompts user through Group, Site and Channel configuration. Team owner  adds members and owners, libraries, columns and lists.  Uses Logic Apps behind scenes to provision resources. Integrates Power Apps for UI, Azure Logic Apps (flows - actions), Managed Identity (authentication), Dataverse (data storage), Deployment (script and ARM template files) and has great documentation.

  • Updates on Independent Publisher Connectors & myStrom Connector Demo –

    presently there are 38 MVP produced certified connectors in production and 19 in the pipeline. Connectors are used by Power Automate, Power Apps, Azure Logic Apps.  The myStrom connector handles authentication and basic switching capabilities (on/off, trigger automations) for home control system devices.  Presenter’s solution triggers home control system actions based on current weather and air quality - displayed on a PowerBI dashboard.
