Welcome to the new PowerApps Community Blog!

Hello, PowerApps Community!


It's my pleasure to announce the launch of the PowerApps Community blog, a platform for you to share your ideas, insights, and experiences.


What should I post on the Community Blog?

We want to hear what's got you thinking about PowerApps and app development, from opinion pieces on the latest industry trends, to helpful tips and how-tos for your fellow PowerApps users, to "trip reports" from your local Microsoft event. 


Who's reading my posts?
The PowerApps is visited by hundreds of your peers every day. It's a place that brings together both experts and new users for PowerApps (and related programs like Power BI), mobile application design, and people who just love cutting edge technology. Your posts will be read by your colleagues, visionaries in your field, and us here at Microsoft. Your audience is ready and waiting to hear what you have to say!


How do I get started?
The first step is to message me with a rough title for your post and a couple of sentences to describe your topic. (You can change these later.) I'll get you set up to create a draft of your post, so you can see exactly what it will look like to readers. Whenever you're done writing, let me know and we can set a date to publish. 


We want you to share your story in your own words, but please note that your posts may be edited for spelling and punctuation, or in the rare case where there may be legal or business concerns. Microsoft has the right to not publish any draft (although that's unlikely to happen).


Feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions, and I can't wait to read your posts!


Hi Jessica, how we can "message you"?


Hi @CRM_DE! There are two easy ways to message me:


1) Go to the message center on these forums and compose a new message to me, @Jessica.


2) From the Community Blog homepage, click the "Message Admin" button on the right side of the page.


Hope that helps!




@Jessica this is a great initiative and it's already off to a great start. It's going to become an excellent resource for us. Thank you and all those responsible for coming up with this initiative. There's already a great community here and with this new resource it can only get better.

 Hi everyone.


I am trying to get in contact with Jessica, but I see she was last online in May 2017. Is there someone else who can assist with registering blogs?




Lol. Bye, @Jessica


@DavesTechTips -- You might want to contact @mackenzie_lyng. She's one of the more active admins for the community. Or try @JessicaC. She seems to have the same profile image as the ghost Jessica. Or @darogael. He seems active at the blog too. Wish you best of luck!


Edit. Typos. Ugh.

@DavesTechTips - have no fear, Mackenzie is here! Smiley Tongue Jessica has moved to another team and is no longer apart of the community team. 


I will message you privately with instructions on how to register for the community blog. Thank you @Anonymous for assisting with this!
