What is Dataverse for Teams, when to use it and when not to?

A few weeks has passed since Microsoft Ignite and me and Amanda last spoke about our two worlds colliding. To refresh your mind; Amanda is working with productivity, collaboration and Microsoft 365 and you can find her blog here. Our previous common article had the title “The best from both worlds – Office Apps & Services and BizApps combined”. Our different worlds are colliding for sure and today we will look at examples of how the boundaries have been blurred.

ValueRule in Classic UI vs. Unified Interface

Now I will let you in on a finding I did the other day. It is all about a very tiny detail but still, it might be good to be aware of this fact. As usual when you find something suspect in Dynamics 365 CE you cannot really be sure if the behaviour is classified as a bug or by design. I registered a Microsoft case this time just to find out.

Cascade from parent to child the flow way

When working with Dynamics 365 CE and designing solutions, it happens from time to time that you want to cascade information from parent records to child records. One example could be to have the address of the contact updated when the address of the parent account is changed.

How to publish an app on AppSource

AppSource is like an app store for your Microsoft products and there is a certification process which your product has to go through before it can be available in there. Last year I worked with getting a product through the certification process and this year on the 15th of March it was finally approved and published.

When customizing the App for Outlook – be aware of this

I ran into something the other day and by writing about this perhaps it saves time for someone who might run into the same thing. I recently learned that now we are able to customize the App for Outlook. There are some default values in the app that must be there in order for the app to function properly though. In this blog post I will highlight those default values and let you know what to do if the tracking panel suddenly goes missing.
