Community Success Team - Who is Who and Welcome Pedro Sacramento

Howdy Community! 

Wanted to say hello, let you know about a new member of our team, and also show you a "who is who in the zoo" view of our Dynamics 365 and Power Platform Community Success Team.

My team is focused on engagement and community success and as of late March, all of our Power Platform and Dynamics 365 communities are now part of my charter, as a lead in DTP Engineering at Microsoft.

 

Clean-Up Crew on Aisle 5, Please

To that end, we are working on a large review of all of our community sites, programs, and information architecture hierarchy to determine what works, what does not, what to clean ala Marie Kondo and how to update processes and build solutions using our own Power Platform and Dynamics 365 products.

We are looking through feedback forums, are in-process cleaning up the Ideas sites and we will be reaching out with some surveys and questions for your awesome input and thoughts as well. We also have lots we are cooking up for you regarding upcoming challenges, campaigns, and opportunities for being showcased in our Community Connections video series. 

We will have a new Community Program Manager and Community Manager for Power Automate and Power Virtual Agents join our team by the end of July.
