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 Check out my workshop preview: https://youtu.be/iaNLIczVFNg

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

Power Automate – Uploading content to SharePoint from Azure drives

Creating a scheduled, automated process that will poll network drives and upload images with metadata to SharePoint online: - Power Automate polls the Azure drive on scheduled intervals - When detected, images are moved to the assigned SharePoint library - The CSV is parsed and metadata is loaded to the related library and columns - The completed documents and metadata are moved to an Archive location to keep the source directory clean Other Off the Shelf tools were considered but Power Automate offered the most flexibility for future development while utilizing an existing M365 subscription.

Why Should I Consider Using Power Automate for Desktop?

While we do live in a cloud-first, desktop-first technology era, there are still several home-grown or legacy applications that are still being used. They do not have an API for cloud-based services to leverage and hence we need a robotic process automation (RPA) system that can fill in the gap. Join Daniel Christian, a Microsoft MVP and certified trainer as he introduces you to Power Automate for desktop.

Building Business Processes that Can & Will Evolve: Product-Neutral Principles

Far more than data management apps, workflow solutions need to factor in the need for frequent change. You should expect even the best-designed models and applications to be regularly modified -- and that's a good thing. This has an impact on how to design processes, how to create forms and reports, how to connect to external data, and how to maintain internal data. This session will talk about reasons why workflow solutions need to be modified so often, why you should embrace this, and strategies and tactics for addressing it. Its advice can be applied to Microsoft Power Automate (Flow), SharePoint Designer, WEBCON BPS, FireStart, Nintex, K2, or most anything else.
