Using the Power apps Training APP?

Hello,

has anyone ever tried the Power Apps Training APP?

 

On the third screen I have to find the Action Toolbar and select the Navigate command to make it open screen L05_Formulas.

This is not true.

The real thing is, that the user has to choose the OnSelect field and then to put the command (navigate(L05_Formulas) in.

 

As long as the creator of this App does not  understand, that a beginner needs instructions - at first in the field of training - in the right order, the low code development will not succeed!

In a Training you have to declare every step - behind this we can see the thinking of the old thinking of coding!

 

You will never motivate Business people to explore the low code field!!!

 

Sorry - I am really unhappy to write this.

Sincerly

Hi @Kurt_Pater 

 

For this question, you would need to select the 'Fill' property, either from the dropdown to the left of the formula bar, or from the properties pane on the right.

You would then assign the formula If(Disccount.Value > 20; Red; Gray) against the Fill property, rather than append it to the OnSelect property, which is what I think you've done here.

Hello Kurt,

 

As a developer who moved from using the full coding experience to the power apps low code-no code, i would recommend for you to first read the materials provided by Microsoft as they help the users to go through these steps, and what in here the power of no-code comes when connecting to over than 300 connectors and data source without writing a single code.

 

MS Materials: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powerapps/powerapps-overview 

Regards.

Thanks for sharing your feedback on the training app.

As a point of clarification, using the Action>Navigate menu and typing the Navigate function into the OnSelect field will accomplish the same thing. Could you perhaps explain why Action>Navigate didn't work for you? This could maybe help other beginners that are experiencing the same problem.

Thank you for the help.

I always looked on the right side to find the action tool bar.

The next problem is to transfer Action to German "Aktion." This seems a little step - but it is not. 

In any case it would be clearer to write " then use the Action toolbar - on the left side on the top - and select the Navigate command.

 

More over - it would be very helpful to watch a video, where all this steps are shown. 

Kind regards

Thanks for your information!

 

The reference of a lot of information does not help in a specific situation. 

 

This shows the problem of all things related to computer science. Developers forget the basic problems of users. These problems frustrate the beginners. The  experience -until now -was in suche a case only time wasting. In this case not to be able to solve such an "easy thing". The next step of the beginner is to decline the system, which causes the problem.  

 

Therefore the trainings information must be absolutely clear for the beginners. The aim of the low-code-movement is the spreading of the use of low-code to the business people (with no coding experience).

 

After 40 years in the computer science field I have to point out that beginners frustration lead to a refusal of every computer system. It does not matter how good the system for the developers is. 

First impression always counts!

Kind regards

Thanks for your help.

I am a teacher in the field of project management in the largest IT-schools of Austria (about 80 classes and 2500 students).

One of the first aspects of my doing is to explain how to write a clear sentence.

A sentence has a subject, a verb and an object.

To get a clear statement it is necessary to connect the first sentence with the second sentence.

The following sentence has as a subject the object of the previous sentence.

Example: The house is in Vienna. Vienna is a beautiful city.

 

This case shows that it is necessary to repeat all things clearly and with the same nouns.

 

Therefore it is better to repeat the instruction and not to write “in a similar way configure fill ..”. Clearer would be: “In the property drop town (top left) swich in OnSelect to fill ….”

 

Thanks for your attention
