Force rollup fields calculation

Dear community,

I'm creating a POC for a client for them to decide whether to go for the Power Platform for replacing a legacy application. The strategy is to use the model-driven approach as far as possible, thus the end result will be a set of business entities which will be manipulated by one or more model-driven apps.

The biggest blocker point so far is that I need several rollup fields to be calculated as soon the data is entered in the entities they refer to. I know we can go to each rollup field and force the value to be updated in the model-driven app directly by hitting the "Update" button that appears next to the field. The thing is that the client wants to have a single button to update all rollup field at once.

Is there a way of doing that? Thanks in advance!

The author of "Dynamics 365 Workflow Tools" has released an entity neutral version called "Power Platform Workflow Tools".  It's a new project that excludes classes with dependencies on Microsoft Sales and Customer Service.  It deploys into a stock Power Platform environment.
