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

In our session we will discuss how the Microsoft Power Platform can better position agencies to be nimble and respond quickly to the ever-changing landscape. We'll show responding to a rapidly changing regulation landscape using multiple personas, both IT and Business decision makers, and speak to the key points of interest that drive both. We'll show how these personas can leverage the Power Platform to both meet the changing regulations and show measured progress along the way. We'll include demos of various Power Platform products to highlight the progress of the agency and demonstrate increased velocity by leveraging low-code tools.

Comparing Power Pages (Portals), Canvas Apps, and Model-Driven Apps

Choosing between Canvas and Model-Driven Power Apps can be challenging for those unfamiliar with the Power Platform. After all, to some extent, they’re almost identical. Both Canvas and Model-Driven apps are low-code frameworks for creating business applications. They share similar components, and the results are pretty much the same. Above all, why should you integrate Power Pages into your toolbox after Microsoft's announcement about Power Pages? How does it differentiate from the Portals? Especially since it's built on the foundation of Power Apps Portals, providing the same robust capabilities and pro developer experiences along with a new low-code maker experience and out-of-the-box templates to design modern business sites. If you want to learn about Power Apps App creation strategies, what to use, and when, this session is for you!
