Re: How do I create a custom entity with a "full name" primary field concatenated from first and last names?

SIMPLE!

Make the FullName (which is the primary field) Not required, and create a workflow process to CONCAT the FullName from the FirstName + " " + LastName.

 

You are done then!

Re: How do I create a custom entity with a "full name" primary field concatenated from first and last names?

You could create a calculated field to do the Concatentation - it would look like:

CONCAT(prefix_firstname, prefix_middlename, prefix_lastname)

Then the workflow would just set the primary field to be the same as the calculated field (as per earlier in the thread, the primary field can't be a calculated field, hence the need for a workflow). The workflow would need to be triggered off a change to any of the individual fields (it can't be triggered from a change to a calculated field)

I am also new to Power Apps and Model Driven Apps. Is a workflow the same as a Business Process?
