PowerApps is a very powerful Software as a service (SaaS) tool used to build powerful data-driven business applications using a WYSIWYG drag and drop designer and Excel-like formulas. Included in the Office 365 suite, PowerApps provides the ability to connect to hundreds of various data sources such as Salesforce, Dropbox, OneDrive, GitHub, Microsoft Dynamics 365, SharePoint, and more. Instead of customizing SharePoint list forms (New, Edit, Display) with InfoPath it is now recommended to use PowerApps. While PowerApps is not an InfoPath replacement, it is the successor and the PowerApps team has worked hard to incorporate a better experience so you can quickly build and deploy the right business solution without writing code. This theater session demonstrates a real-world scenario that converts a manual paper process to using a SharePoint list with a PowerApps custom view that pulls data from Azure SQL, writes back to SharePoint and then upon an approval Flow pushes data into Dynamics 365.
