Dynamics Better Together Integrations Showcase How-To with Power Platform Products

Hello everyone!

 

As we approach the Microsoft Business Applications Summit Digital Event, you may have heard James Phillips focus on “Better Together” and how the Power Platform / Dynamics products work better together.  Until now, there hasn’t been a location for resources where customers can learn more about how the products integrate.   

 

Please note the FAQ and Special Notes section below for current information.

 

What is this about: 

 

We are presenting this exclusive opportunity for you to get involved with the inaugural launch of the “Better Together Integration” forums by providing integration examples to seed the forums.   

 

These forums highlight HOW the Power Platform and Dynamics products integrate, or work “better together”.  The how-to, use case examples and best practices forums will also automatically be syndicated across ALL the Business Applications Communities.  

 

Why is this special: 

 

Early access to these forums has been granted only to an exclusive group of community members, like yourself.  As a Super User / MVP / Partner, we know that you are already an expert in one product, and we’d like to offer this opportunity for you to grow and showcase your expertise with solutions involving more than one Power Platform / Dynamics product. 

 

This is a great opportunity to grow your reputation across the Power Platform communities – which means 5X the exposure!   

  

How does it work: 

 

It’s simple, create posts that share integration solutions that walk a reader through the “How To” of your example.  The forums will be made available to the public at the MBAS digital event.  This content may also be multi-purposed in other ways and opportunities for you (webinars, AMAs, showcase at MBAS).   

 

If you’re interested contributing “How To” content: 

 

  1. Be sure you are registered with each community so that you will get direct credit for your syndicated content across the communities: 
    1. Power Apps, Power Automate and Power Virtual Agent (these all use the same community user account) 
    2. Power BI 
    3. Dynamics 
  2. Complete this form https://aka.ms/BetterTogetherIntegration by 4/30/20 to qualify for swag prizes and future opportunities, and to be contacted with further details. 
  3.  Prepare and post your content following the guidelines below 

 

Guidelines:  

 

  • Content must showcase a minimum of two Power Platform products: Power BI, Power Apps, Power Automate, Power Virtual Agent, Dynamics.   

 

  • Content submitted should include the following sections with an overall focus on “How-To:” 

 

Introduction: Which products are being highlighted; what is the task accomplished 

Demonstration and Instructions:  Pictures or video demonstrating integration with details on the process or steps taken  

Labels: Select the "product' label within the forum post for all products referenced in the post (to ensure the content is syndicated to the appropriate communities)

Better Together Summary:  Summary of benefits/impact - what the integration provides vs. single product usage 

 

Here’s an example of a post that shows multiple products, with instructions and video in the post. 

 

FAQ 

  • Multiple content submissions are allowed and encouraged! 
  • MS Employees are encouraged to submit content as well  
  • Forums will be open for exclusive access next week (4/13/20) for you to add your content 
  • Forums will be opened to the public the beginning of May in preparation for MBAS 
  • Incentives: 
  • Random winners of all contributors will receive a Power Platform Swag Pack with swag from each product.   
  • Some contributors will be invited to participate in recorded webinars and other opportunities to showcase their “better together” integration example across all the communities / other MSFT properties exponentially increasing exposure and assistance to customers. 

 

 

Special Notes

1. The PVA label is currently not available for selection.   It will be made available prior to MBAS.  This is important as the "label" selection allows your post to syndicate to the appropriate communities and be visible to users in the other communities.  If you are planning to showcase PVA in your content, please know you'll be able to do so in a few days.

2.  Editing Labels:  Please ensure you select the correct labels as you cannot edit the labels once your post is published.  This is important because the selection of labels determines which communities your post will appear.  This will be fixed shortly and this message will be updated.

 

We look forward to the opportunity to showcase you and your expertise across the communities! 

 

If you have any questions, please reply to this thread! 

 

Thank you, 

 

Eric
