WRK103 - Power Apps and Power Automate (Flow) for SharePoint Bootcamp
Power Apps and Power Automate are the successors to InfoPath and Designer Workflows for SharePoint. In this demo rich workshop, you'll spend the morning learning how to customize your SharePoint list forms with Power Apps and automate processes with Power Automate. You'll see how Power Apps can be used to make many of the customizations for which you may have used InfoPath in the past. We'll also cover how Power Automate can be used to do the same tasks for which you may be currently using Designer workflows - and much more..... Live demos will be used to illustrate the topics covered.
In the afternoon, you'll have the opportunity to "take the wheel" and test out Power Apps and Power Automate for yourself. Through a series of hands-on labs, you'll gain first hand experience in customizing SharePoint list forms with Power Apps and automating business processes in SharePoint using Power Automate. Your instructors will be there to assist anytime you have questions or need some help.
To participate in the hands-on portion of this workshop, attendees should bring a laptop computer. Attendees who bring tablets, even with keyboards, will likely experience difficulties in successfully completing the labs.
Attend this session and say goodbye to InfoPath and SharePoint Designer workflows. Gain the skills you'll need to immediately start customizing your Office 365 SharePoint sites with Power Apps and Power Automate.

APP102 - Power Apps: Tips From a First-Time User
Having troubles getting started with Power Apps? You're not alone. As InfoPath support comes to an end, it's imperative that users understand the next form designer baked into SharePoint Online.
In this session, I'll share what I learned as a first-time user of Power Apps - both what works and what doesn’t. Together, we will cover the entire lifecycle of a SharePoint Online list form and address the basics: How do I actually build my first form? Where do I add fields and their defaults? Can I make it look pretty? Once I publish the form, how do users fill it out?
This session will be peppered with my own personal pros and cons, pitfalls to be aware of but mostly centered around the things a user should consider before making the switch from any form designer to Power Apps.
