Coming together for Jonas Rapp!

In the latest episode of XrmToolCast, me and my fellow MVPs Gustaf Westerlund and Benedikt Bergmann come together with Daryl as Daryl’s guests, in order to do something for MVP Jonas Rapp, who is currently hospitalized. We talk about what has happened and we encourage the listeners to show their support (and appreciation) to Jonas by making a donation to his FetchXML Builder PayPal account. Jonas has helped so many people and has always been highly appreciated by me. It is time to show our support to Jonas!

Looking back at 2020 – The world got virtual and two types of t(T)eams were in the center of attention

The year is coming to an end and it is time to write a summary of what this year has been all about. Without a doubt this year will go down the history books, even though most of us would rather want to forget about it. At the end of this year I am grateful for what I have, starting with my health, my family and friends and their health. These things that matters the most, but most years we take it for granted. I am also grateful for having a job and for being a part this Community.

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.

Highlights from Microsoft Ignite 2020

Last week me and my community friend MVP Amanda Sterner gave some PRE Ignite 2020 tips. The week is now coming to an end and it is time for me to write a POST Ignite article in which I will summarize how I experienced this week. Since I am particularly interested in all things Power Platform, most of the Ignite sessions that caught my attention had some kind of Power Platform part in it. However, no surprises there, just as expected Microsoft Teams was a huge part of Microsoft Ignite, also in the Power Platform related sessions. By now you probably have heard of Microsoft Teams ❤ Power Platform.

The best from both worlds – Office Apps & Services and BizApps combined

One of the things I really like with community is how you come in contact with people who are equally passionate about technology, helping others and learning together as yourself. I have teamed up with Office Apps & Services MVP Amanda Sterner (her blog and Twitter) who specialized in Microsoft Teams, Microsoft 365 and collaboration and we have had a pre Ingite chat. Exciting times sure are ahead of us, with Project Oakdale around the corner and Microsoft Ignite just a few days away. This is the first article we do together and the plan is that more articles are to come!

2020 Release Wave 2 – Learn to surf like a Pro and let’s look at Power Apps highlights!

Today the Release Plans for 2020 Release Wave 2 were released, one for Power Platform and one for Dynamics 365 and the accelerators. It is time to prepare for a new wave, features will be rolled out starting from October 2020 and continue to be rolled out until March 2021. If you have not already learned how to surf like a Pro, I will let you know how to do that. What I mean with a Pro here is that a Pro knows how the waves works and knows how to be prepared when a wave is coming. If you already know everything about the Release Wave process, then you still might find the section about Power Apps highlights interesting to read.
