WRK403 - Dataverse for Teams: Extending Teams with Apps, Flows, and Bots

Use of Microsoft Teams has exploded for many companies during the global pandemic. For many organizations Teams has become the app that connects all their employees together. Power Platform apps, like Power Apps, Power Automate, and Power Virtual Agents, provides a low-code platform for extending that functionality. In September, 2020 Microsoft announced Dataverse for Teams. Dataverse for Teams is included in the Teams license so you can build apps, flows, and bots that make use of relational data storage, rich data types, and enterprise-grade governance without additional expense. In this workshop we'll look at how to use Dataverse in the Power Platform to extend the Teams application. By the time you leave you'll have an integrated Teams application and bot that can help your employees manage their presence as people move back into the office after the Pandemic. We'll cover the following with slides and hands-on exercises. • What does the Teams License cover • Differences between Dataverse (CDS) and Dataverse for Teams • Creating Dataverse Relational Tables • Securing Dataverse for Teams Tables • Building a Power App with Dataverse for Teams • Integrating Dataverse for Teams with a Flow • Accessing Dataverse for Teams from a Bot • Managing Dataverse for Teams Environments • Deploying Custom Apps, Bots, and Flows to additional Teams

APP104 - Building your first Model-driven app with Power Apps as an IT Pro

When most people think about Power Apps, they imagine canvas apps. While those can offer a lot of design flexibility, sometimes it's necessary to build an interface quickly and focus on functionality. In this session, join Nick Brattoli as he demonstrates how to quickly build and deploy Power Apps to suit your data. We'll go over topics such as: • Differences between canvas apps and model-driven apps • Building your data model with DataVerse • Creating a basic model-driven app • Interacting with your data using Power Automate flows If you're already familiar with canvas apps and you want to see what else Power Apps can do, don't miss this one!

PLT200 - Intro to Microsoft Dataverse for Teams: Extending Microsoft Teams with Apps and Flows

Use of Microsoft Teams has exploded for many companies as a result of the global pandemic. For many organizations Teams has become the app that connects all their employees together. Power Platform apps, like Power Apps, Power Automate, and Power Virtual Agents, provides a low-code platform for extending that functionality. But extending Teams with new apps, flows, and bots requires a place to store content. SharePoint is a possibility, but from a data point of view SharePoint has a lot of limitations since it isn't an actual relational database. Dataverse, formerly known as CDS, provides relational data storage, rich data types, and enterprise-grade governance. But Dataverse has always been a premium feature requiring extra licensing. This is where Microsoft Dataverse for Teams comes in. Using the Power Apps application inside Teams we can build and deploy apps using a custom version of Dataverse that is included in the Microsoft Teams license. This provides access to a real relational database and one-click solution deployment to the Teams app. In this talk we'll take a look at what Dataverse for Teams and how it can be used in the Power Platform to extend the Teams application. We'll cover the following points with slides and demos. • What does the Teams License cover? • Differences between Dataverse (CDS) and Dataverse for Teams • Creating Dataverse Relational Tables • Building a Power App with Dataverse for Teams • Integrating Dataverse for Teams with a Flow • Accessing Dataverse for Teams from a Bot

PLT204 - Creating Robust Solutions with Power Apps Portals, Power Automate, Dataverse & MS 365 Lists

While Power Apps canvas apps are easy to build, they unfortunately don't allow for much interaction with external users, especially not anonymous ones. While that may seem like a hard gap to cross, with Power Apps Portals, you can do just that! Join Nick Brattoli as he demonstrates some of the capabilities of Power Apps Portals, Dataverse, Power Automate, and even Microsoft lists in this information-packed hour. He'll show things such as: • Data structures with Dataverse and Microsoft Lists • An overview of the Power Apps Portals interface vs canvas apps • A simple Power Apps Portal that allows users to view and enter information • How to use Power Automate to send data between Lists and Dataverse and your portal If you're a pro at Power Apps canvas apps already, come check out this session to see what else is possible!

TMS301 - The Why, How and What of Dataverse in Microsoft Teams

Dataverse provides a low code data platform that allows your data to permeate all your apps - and in this session, we'll show you how. In this session, we’ll explore, learn and demonstrate how to build intelligent and integrated apps within any organization with the built-in Power Platform capabilities using Microsoft Dataverse (Project Oakdale). Because Dataverse is seamlessly integrated into Microsoft Teams, there's no need to manage forms from two places. Attending this session will gain insights on the business benefits of enabling and using Dataverse and the importance of Data that is central to transforming any business process, from action to automation to interaction to analysis. • Built your first app without one single line of code and integrate this directly into your Microsoft Teams • Learn that Dataverse allows data to be integrated from multiple sources into a single store, which can then be used in Power Apps, Power Automate, Power BI, and Power Virtual Agents along with data that are already available from the Dynamics 365. • Understand the security concepts of Microsoft Dataverse.

PLT305 - Dr. Strange and the Dataverse of Madness

Microsoft has created a business software platform that not only includes complete commercial products such as accounting and CRM, but also development tools that can be used by professional software developers and power users. Microsoft is empowering power users, also called citizen developers, with tools that require less code and use more configuration through templates and wizards. All these apps are connected through a shared data model called Dataverse, but what does that really mean? To restore order to a world where everything is changing, our heroes will help you navigate through the madness by helping you understand the terminology of the Dataverse, how to control Security and data access, working with data, and creating a Dataverse environment and building a sample app that can be packaged and deployed into other environments.
