In January this year, Jim Daly provided a detailed announcement on the previous version CDS to the CDS for Apps migration experience that is available for self service. As the deadline to initiate the database migration is coming up, we want to help ensure everyone has considered if a CDS migration is required for their environments with a previous version CDS instance, and continue operating successfully.
We are thrilled to announce that Forrester has recognized Microsoft PowerApps as a leader in The Forrester Wave™: Low-Code Development Platforms For AD&D Professionals, Q1 2019, and rated strongest on strategy. For a deep dive on this news, please visit the PowerApps blog.
I would like to announce that we will begin recognizing our top PowerApps Community contributors for each month with a special gift! We will be giving away exclusive Microsoft PowerApps swag to our Top Community Contributors at the end of each month, starting this month! (March 2019)
This is an incentive for ANYONE & EVERYONE in the PowerApps Community who wants a chance to earn some awesome PowerApps swag!
What are PowerApps Community Contributions?
The most important community contributions that you can offer are Solutions Authored. This means that you wrote a reply on someone's thread and they felt like your reply was a valid solution to the issue initially addressed by their thread so they marked your reply as the Accepted Solution. That is what we are mostly here for, after all, working solutions to our issues! Replies Authored, Kudos Given/Received are other examples of community contribution, but they will not be weighed as heavily as your Solutions Authored!
There are lots of threads throughout the PowerApps Community right now that don't have replies or haven't received any acceptable solutions as replies. This is something we can all help solve together if we offer our knowledge wherever we can.
How do I find the topics/threads that I can offer help with?
Let's say that you have some knowledge and experience regarding using the "Compose" action in PowerApps. You can use the search feature to conduct very specific searches regarding the "Component" action that will only show the threads where you can offer help regarding that specific action. This is an excellent way for anyone to help lots of other PowerApps users while at the same time keeping your skills sharp and learning new things! I recommend that EVERYONE registered here on the PowerApps Community regularly conduct quick searches for the areas where you can offer insight. I can almost guarantee you 100% that you will at least learn some great new things along the way.
