The potential of dataflows is the best-kept secret in the Power Platform. Dataflows were designed to extract, transform, and load data into Dataverse. But what exactly does that mean? How can this abstract concept be applied to actual business scenarios? This article explores different use cases for dataflows, through the lens of the distribution and wholesale industry.
You may have the scenario where you want to disable the toggle navigation button (image below) for specific web page. Ex: Contract agreement web page or Terms and Condition web page. Where you dont want users to navigate to different links while reading T&C.
In PowerApps Portal > Choose any web page in responsive mode. You can see the below toggle navigation button. This occurs because of the bootstrap theme.
Solution: In Terms and Condition Web page.
In Portal management app:
1. Content > Web Pages > TermsAndCondition (Name of the web page)
2. Under Localized Content > Select web page > Edit > Advanced
Hey, Power Apps Community fans! We are very excited to announce that with the start of the Power Platform Community Super User Season 1 2021, we are welcoming some new members to the Power Apps Community Super User crew!
We are very happy to announce that today we have launched some new community profile badges across the Power Platform Communities! As a popular request, we have decided to extend our existing profile badges that recognize Authored Solutions by adding sixteen additional badges!
This article discusses the example of a multi-choice field in SharePoint with a multi-choice Combo Box in Power Apps filtering the possibility of ANY selected field in the Combo Box matching ANY stored value in the list which is stored in a Complex (table) field.
Now as you can see in below image, we are on the home page of PowerApps, if you have good knowledge of PowerApps then you can directly create PowerApps by clicking on the options under "Make Your Own App" and if you are beginner then skip this step and follow Step 3.
If you want to connect your data with in-built Microsoft provided sample app then choose "Other Data Sources".
Now click on + New Connection and select "Business Central".
As you can see in below image, we have created connection with business central, now PowerApps asking us to choose the Environment (Data Set).
After selecting the environment PowerApps asking us to choose entity to create demo app. For this example, we have chosen vendors Entity/Table.
That's it, we are done with our first sample app, now see how it looks like.
Output:As you can see in below image, PowerApps created one demo application for us with the entity vendor.
This one was demo app where I demonstrate to connect Business central data with Power Apps, now based on that I have created one proper Power App in which I have used Business center Role center, List and Card page of Vendors, Purchase orders and Purchase Invoice and Inventory modules.You can say Business Central Important modules integrated with Power Apps.
I know you are thinking that how we can integrate this, correct?? don't worry I will explain this in my next Blog meanwhile you just checkout this exclusive sneak peek.
Everyone is going digital. The need for companies to engage in a complete digital transformation is now a foregone conclusion. Countless CEOs have nominated CIOs to deploy AI, AR, IoT, and RPA, by leveraging APIs in the cloud. These acronyms are all the rage at shareholder meetings, but how do these abstract concepts trickle down to rank-and-file employees in their everyday work?
A question I often receive is how to update more than one list when using an edit form. Since the edit form is linked to one specific data source and updated when you invoke the SubmitForm function, a second update mechanism is required. The solution lies in the use of the Patch function in conjunction with SubmitForm.
As users have become accustomed in many applications, top menus with context sensitive sub-menus are the norm, but are not part of the standard Power Apps “suite”, so creating this type of function is a good enhancement to user experience using a “look and feel” familiar to them.
This blog will demonstrate one method of achieving this functionality with an experience familiar to the user.
Office 365Groups have many uses, particularly when Security Enabled for controlling user authorities to access individual Power Apps while also allowing the same group to control access to the data source ("all in one place").
However you can also use the user’s membership of any group (not necessarily having access to the app and not needing security enablement) to control what they can do and see once the app is opened. This blog discusses the options for enabling the functionality.
Recently a need was identified to create a calendar using SharePoint/Microsoft Lists as a datasource. Normally, this would be an easy undertaking as you would simply create a column for start date and a column for end date. As most of us know, nothing is as simple as it ever seems. The business requirement was that an application should be created that limits the number of bookings that can be created in a day (due to covid and social distancing guidelines) and recurring dates are a must. Restricting the number of bookings was easy and to an extent recurring events was simple until it came to creating logic for recurring events on a weekly basis. With a little help from different examples in the community, I was able to find a way to set up recurring events while using SharePoint/Microsoft Lists as a data source.
Are you familiar with our Super User program?! We would like to announce that the Power Apps Super User program has now launched tiered Super Super ranks to give each Super User a more personalized rank next to their username! This will help signify where a Super User is at in their journey of community contribution!
