When you start mixing and matching aspects of the Power Platform, you can sometimes stumble upon some odd behaviour. For example, working with entity image attributes from the Common Data Service within a canvas Power App can leave you wondering why your full image is not rendering...
Trying to achieve a true ALM process using Power Automate or canvas Power Apps has always been a struggle in the past. Fortunately, we are starting to see some new capability land, such as Connection References, which is helping to remedy some past frustrations.
As we close out my blog series on exam MB-400, I thought it might be useful to compile all previous posts together into a single location. So if you've been following along or are joining for the first time, I hope this post is useful.
So far in the MB-400 exam series, we've seen the variety of connectors available for Power Apps and Power Automate flows. For situations where you're working with a bespoke API, developers can use custom connectors to provide the same type of functionality and to extend the Power Platform further.
There’s a brand-new Power Platform exam on the horizon, explicitly targeting Power Apps. So I thought I’d take a closer look at it, dissecting and discussing the areas to focus on, based on the current exam specification.
Getting canvas Power Apps working alongside the Common Data Service is pretty straightforward these days. However, you might occasionally hit a few mind-boggling issues, such as the one I had recently involving the assignment of Task records…
Power Apps Component Framework (PCF) controls are a new, shiny, thing that Power Platform / Dynamics 365 developers can work with. They are also a subject area within Microsoft exam MB-400. Therefore, in my next post on my series targeting this exam, let’s see how they work.
Canvas Power App development can be a little challenging, particularly if you are coming from a Dynamics CRM / 365 background. Understanding, for example, how to work with option sets within is not immediately clear. Fortunately, once you understand what’s involved, it’s easy to start doing some amazing things…
By configuring your canvas app form control to display the record you've just created automatically, you can provide a helpful step for the users of your app. In this week's blog post, I'll show you the steps involved to achieve this requirement.
In last week's post in my MB-400 exam series, we saw how you can use model-driven apps to build data-driven applications. The other type of Power Apps - canvas apps - throws this approach completely on its head, by providing a wholly tailorable visual and data access experience.
