Part 1 - Microsoft Power Apps

Introduction to Power Apps

In the world of the information worker you will handle information that is probably stored across different software suites, like SharePoint, Salesforce, Excel file, Access database, ... Typically, you would like your end-users to be able to browse and/or modify this data in a general user-friendly, and preferably mobile, way. Microsoft PowerApps allows people, without any development skills, to build applications that are mobile friendly on top of their data. Allowing other people to use the built application to browse the data and maybe even modify it.

Topics:

  • What is PowerApps?
  • PowerApps components
  • Related technologies
  • Licensing and pricing conditions
  • PowerApp connections
  • App samples and templates

Building PowerApps apps

In this module, we’ll explore the capabilities when building an app using PowerApps Studio. The participants will get familiar with connecting to data sources, creating pages, adding controls, bindings, behavior, … . Besides these components, participants will also learn how to publish and share their apps with other people.

Topics:

  • Introduction to PowerApps Studio
  • Creating apps from templates
  • Creating apps from scratch
  • Screens and Pages
  • Screen components: Forms, DataCards, Controls, …
  • Handling bindings
  • Versioning, publishing and sharing apps

PowerApps advanced features

In this module, some more advanced features you can apply in your app will be discussed. Participants will learn how to work with formulas and how to apply data source function delegation.

Topics:

  • Using functions, signals, enumerations and named operators
  • Understanding and applying data source delegation

The Microsoft Common Data Model

Microsoft PowerApps can be built on top of the Microsoft Common Data Model (CDM). CDM acts as an out-of-box business database for storing and managing business entities. It is a secure business database, comprising of well-formed standard business entities that can be deployed for use in your organization. CDM also allows you to build custom entities either extending standard entities or adding new entities that can relate to standard entities. CDM can enable organizations to connect business data from applications with information residing in Office 365 productivity platform.

Topics:

  • What is the Microsoft Common Data Model (CDM)
  • Managing entities
  • Working with structured metadata
  • Importing and exporting data
  • Excel integration for CDM
  • Managing security
  • Building Apps with CDM

Using PowerApps for on premises data

PowerApps also allows you to create apps that connect to data that lives on premises instead of in the cloud. This is made possible by using gateways. Such a gateway allows you to create apps that can connect to any number of on premises data sources.

Topics:

  • What are gateways?
  • Set up a gateway for on premises connections

PowerApps Admin Center

PowerApps allows you to create business apps involving data and other resources that might be critical for the enterprise and need to be restricted to specific audiences. Using the PowerApps Admin Center, an organization can establish boundaries and policies around the use of PowerApps on their data.

Topics:

  • Managing connections
  • Managing environments and security
  • Managing data policies
  • Migrating PowerApps apps and resources

PowerApps for mobile

With the PowerApps App now available for all major mobile devices. You can run your apps on any mobile device. In this module, we’ll explore the capabilities of the PowerApps App for mobile devices.

Topics:

  • Capabilities of PowerApps App for IOS, Android and Windows 10 mobile

Part 2 - Microsoft Flow

Introduction to Flow

Microsoft Flow allows you to create automatic processes, called flows, that react to an event in one app or application (like SharePoint, Twitter, ...), do something with the event data, and then use this data in another service (like SharePoint, Salesforce, Twitter, ...). All this can be done without having to write a single line of code.

Topics:

  • What is Flow?
  • Flow building blocks
  • Flow connections
  • Licensing and pricing conditions
  • Flow templates

Building Flows

In this module, the participants will learn how to build and customize flows, either starting form a template or scratch.

Topics:

  • Building flows from templates
  • Building flows from scratch
  • Working with services, triggers, actions, conditions, parallelism and loops
  • Run a flow on a schedule
  • Calling custom business services
  • Using approval options
  • Observing flows
  • Creating expressions with the Workflow Definition Language

Using Flows for on premises data

Flow also allows you to create flows that connect to data that lives on premises instead of in the cloud. This is made possible by using gateways. Such a gateway allows you to create flows that can trigger on data and push data to on premises data sources.

Topics:

  • What are gateways?
  • Set up a gateway for on premises connections

Combining PowerApps and Flow

PowerApps and Flow can be seen as individual products, but they can also be integrated in one another. This module will illustrate how you can use Flows to augment your PowerApps and vise versa.

Topics:

  • Extending PowerApps with Flow
  • Extending Flow with PowerApps

Flow Admin Center

Flow allows you to create flows on both business and non-business data. As an enterprise, you want to make sure that your business data is safe and cannot flow into non-business services. The Flow admin center will allow you to manage environments and data loss prevention policies.

Topics:

  • Managing environments
  • Data Loss Prevention policies
  • Migrating flows

Flow for mobile

With Flow, also available for mobile devices, you can manage your flows from your mobile. It also allows you to trigger flows on the click of a button. In this module, participants will explore the capabilities of the mobile Flow app.

Microsoft PowerApps and Microsoft Flow are both SaaS services that allow business users to build business applications on top of their data and build flows to automate business processes.
In this course, participants will get familiar with the concepts of Microsoft PowerApps and Microsoft Flow. They will learn how to use these services to create custom applications and flows without needing any development skills.

This course targets power users, content managers, business analysts and many more who want to learn how to quickly and easily:

  • build forms or mobile applications with Microsoft PowerApps without any development skills
  • build flows in an IFTTT (If This Then That) way using Microsoft Flow

No prior knowledge to PowerApps or Flow is required.
