Re: PowerApps Community Call August 21st - Live on Teams

Hi @PaddyFreefall 

1. CDS connector is the recommendation as the product team is focusing on it more and bringing more updates to it.

2. Local collections could save time for the user if the data is being used at multiple places, so instead of making a call every-time, you just make it once. This depends on the size of the filtered data that you want to pull in though. If it's too big (more than 2000 records) then collection won;t make sense.

Hope that helps.

I'm really looking forward to this community call Smiley Happy

Everything I do currently has to be SharePoint-based, so I think a refresher on dealing with D365 and CDS is going to be great!

Re: PowerApps Community Call August 21st - Live on Teams

Great demos, thanks, guys!

 

I'm just starting out with canvas apps and have a few questions off the back of today's call - 

 

1. Is there any reason for using the Dynamics 365 connector over the CDS connector?

2. Is it best practice to create local collections when the app starts as opposed to setting the gallery items property
