The Microsoft Build 2022 adventure

Microsoft Build took place May 24–26. In this post we will look at the Build announcements from a Power Platform perspective. I will also tell you about a new little adventure of mine, give you my thoughts around Microsoft events and why I think it is for YOU and we will make a short trip back to Build 2021. The featured image does not really tell the truth, of course I did not just register 😉 that was old news.

What you might not know about FetchXML Builder

Recently MVP Jonas Rapp was invited by MVP Victor Dantas to the Zero to Hero show. The FetchXML Builder creator held the session FetchXML Builder from Zero to Hero. I listened in and afterwards I felt inspired to write this post to share a few tips and tricks that I had not used before.

I have been missing out and perhaps you have too?!

Looking back at 2021 – News and Content gathering Edition

In my previous post I revisited moments from 2021 out of a Power Platform perspective. In this post I will look back at the collaborations I have had during the year. For me, these collaborations are like energy sources. Even though it takes time, I find myself enjoying gathering content, collaborating with others around news and content in general as well as uplifting other people and their work.

Skeletons in the closet – Power Platform Best Practices Edition

It’s the month of bats, pumpkins, ghosts and skeletons. MVP Alex Shlega launched a series of blog posts where he encouraged the community to reveal stories which might help others, with input what NOT to do in Power Platform deployments. You’ll find his first post here. Best Practices is something that I am a big advocate of. Consistency and maintainable solutions are hard to accomplish without it. If you are more than one person working with a solution you simply need a common way of working. In this blog post I will share some thoughts around the subject and I might also have one or two skeletons to dig out from the closet and bring to the Halloween party.

Power Platform Weekly had a chat with MVP Guido Preite

Without Guido Preite there would not be a Power Platform Weekly, at least not in the same format as it is today. Guido started Dynamics Weekly on December 4, 2017 and ran it to October 5, 2020, creating #149 valuable issues.

How to avoid a Dataverse jungle

Subtitle: About data quality and Duplicate Management in Power Platform.

The greatness of your toolbox becomes insignificant if you do not take care of your data. It does not matter how great your tools for app creation, automation and presenting data are if you have poor data quality. The outcome of your work will probably not help the end users to better identify the best prospects and target the correct customers. It will definitely not help them to become more efficient in their work, if they have to hack a path through the jungle each morning before they can get to work.
