If you are interested in becoming a Super User, today at #MPPC23, we annoucned a new way for you to “SUIT” up and earn your Super User badge! The new “Super User in Training” initiative is a great way for you to begin building your solution rate, engage with other community members, and find out what it takes to truly be SUPER. Become a “super solver” across the Power Platform communities, whether you’re an expert in Power Apps or just getting started with Power Pages.
