August 2020 Community Challenge: Can You Solve These? Ended on 08/31/20

Thank you for participating in the August Community Challenge! 

This contest ended on 8/31/20

*Winners To Be Announced Soon*


We are excited to announce another 'Can You Solve These?' community challenge. However, there's one major difference: This time, community members from all products in the family, Power BI, Power Apps, Power Automate, Power Virtual Agents, and Dynamics 365 can participate. The more the merrier!

Just like with our previous 'Can You Solve These?' challenges, we are inviting you, our community members, to participate in a quest to find solutions to as many issues as you can.

Here are some more details:



Ten (10) qualified community members from each community will randomly be selected as winners of our new 'Better Together' T-shirts that were designed as part of our T-shirt contest.



Results and winners will be announced after the contest is over.



  • Start date: August 3rd, 2020 (Pacific Time)
  • End date: August 28th, 2020 (Pacific Time)


  • Provide a solution to any post made in any of the forum boards since January 1, 2020.
  • Posts that have a solution are identified by a green check mark, so look for any thread that doesn't have a green check mark.


  1. Select any thread not currently solved on the board landing page. Solved threads have a green check mark to the right of the view count, so look for any thread that doesn't have a green check mark. 5040i31E24E30B2241BB2.png


  2. Then, try to find an answer to the issue, so that your post can be marked as an accepted solution. The thread must have been published in 2020.
  • Do your best to resolve the issue. Your post must be made during the time frame of the challenge. You only qualify for the challenge, if your post was marked as a solution.
  • We highly recommend you @mention the author of your post, so that they are notified of your comment or potential solution and can mark it as an accepted solution. You can find instructions for marking a response to your post as a solution in our 'Contributing to the Community' article in 'Using the Community'.


We hope you are as excited about the challenge as we are and can’t wait to see who will be able to find the highest amount of solutions.

Spread the word about this challenge! Use the #PowerPlatformChallenge hashtag on Twitter.

@heather_italent So there is no specific Enrollment just participate in solving posts is that correct?

Would be nice if we could filter by unsolved threads 

I agree with you @OliverRodrigues  a view of unanswered posts across all threads would be very handy

thanks for that @KrishnaV 

unfortunately that view doesn't filter by forum though.. but it's something thanks 

@Mira_Ghaly - That is correct no enrollment needed - just providing solutions.
