Super Users: 

What is A Super User? 

Just as the name suggests the Super Users are the superheroes of our community. They are especially active and helpful community members who respond with solutions to issues, create posts for our community blog, and share Data Stories. Besides providing a large volume of useful content and interactions, they are also recognized for the quality of their posts. In addition to being awarded a specific forum badge, they are invited to special monthly Super User meetings with the Power Apps community leadership and product teams. They have access to private parts of our forum and are given previews of future community and Power Apps features. Another perk is that Super Users are nominated for consideration to the Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP) title.


If you’ve always wondered who the folks are that are that are so helpful when it comes to answering your questions, you should check out our post with biographies and photos of some of the Super Users from Season 1 of this 2020.
