SOS Ribbon.jpg


We are excited to announce the Summer of Solutions Challenge

This challenge is open to all Power Platform (Power Apps, Power Automate, Power Virtual Agents & Power Pages) community members. We invite you to participate in a quest to provide solutions to as many questions as you can. Answers can be provided in all the communities: Power Apps, Power Automate, Power Virtual Agents & Power Pages.  

The top 10 participants (5 Community Users & 5 Super Users) every week will receive a badge on their profile for participating in the challenge.  (1 badge per person). 


The challenge will last for 5 weeks. There will be a new leader board every week of the challenge. The leader board will recognize the top 10 participants (5 Community Users & 5 Super Users) for that week. Leader boards will be posted in the News & Announcements of each community. At the end of the challenge, each community will award the top community user and top Super User, for a total of 2 winners per community.  


In addition, we’ll randomly draw 2 more winners from all entries for each week’s top 10 users. The Winners (10 in total) of the drawing will receive a complimentary pass to the Power Platform Conference in Las Vegas in October 3-5, 2023.   


Please note: Prize is the complimentary pass to the Power Platform Conference ONLY. Airfare and lodging are not included. The pass has no monetary value and compensation is not available should the winner not use the pass. 


Here is how it works: 


When: There are 5 weekly challenges  

  • Week 1: August 8-14 
  • Week 2: August 15-21 
  • Week 3: August 22-28
  • Week 4: August 29-September 4 
  • Week 5: September 5-11 


During the challenge, you earn an entry for every accepted solution you provide. Each solution counts towards one entry in the drawing. (i.e.: 5 solutions = 5 entries) Every week, the top 10 users (5 Community Users & 5 Super Users) for each community with the highest number of solutions will be entered into a random drawing. 

The drawing will take place on September 15, 2023. We will announce the winners on the same day. The winners will have one week to accept or decline the prize.  

  • You will need to provide an answer to the post so it can be marked as an accepted solution. The thread must be marked by the original poster of the question as an Accepted Solution within 24 hours of the original posting.  
  • We highly recommend you @mention the author of the post, so they are notified of your comment or potential solution and can mark it as an accepted solution.  
  • To help find solutions in the community, you can look at any board landing page that does not have a green check mark that appears to the right of the post. 



You can find instructions for marking your response to your post as a solution in our support articles:

Power Pages: Using the Community, Contributing to the Community 

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



  • Challenge runs August 8th 12am PDT thru September 11th 12m PDT.  
  • One pass per winner. Once your name has been randomly selected, you will not be eligible to win another pass. If your name is randomly selected a second time, an additional drawing will take place.  
  • Winners will be notified on September 15th, via private message in the community. Once the user accepts, we will post in the News & Announcements of each of the communities.  
  • The winner will have one week to accept or decline the prize.  
  • If accepted tickets will be sent to the user 
  • If declined, a 2nd random drawing will be held. 
  • Prize only consists of a pass to the Power Platform Conference (air and hotel are not included) 
  • Please review the Rules attached to this post.
