(JW): It’s a little bit of a challenge since our membership is interested in both Microsoft Flow, and PowerApps. Plus, we have developers and functional consultants in the group. I try to have 4 parts of every meeting – an end user makes a presentation on how they are using Flow or Canvas Apps at their company. A technical or business presentation from a Microsoft team member. An educational, “how to presentation” ...

Whats your top tip, for productivity, simplicity or maybe to create something really complex... Using PowerApps to create more and more solutions I think the best tip i can give is to use variables, this allows the app to set the variables on start and then you can easily use buttons to change them so that you only have to change the variable not the filter logic each time you want a change. If you are anything like me then an IF statement, especially a nested one becomes quickly unreadable, using variables allows you to make this way more readable despite the names of the incoming data fields. Of course this also means that when developing you need to remember ...

Journey to User Group Leader - Q&A with Naveen Ajmera, Dubai Power BI and PowerApps User Group Leader This is a Q&A with Naveen Ajmera, Dubai Power BI and PowerApps User Group Leader Why did you initially submit an application to start a PowerApps User Group in the Netherlands? (NA): After a successful stint of running the Dubai Power BI User Group, I thought of expanding with another opportunity of knowledge sharing. As Power BI helps in the inform and advise portion of analytics, and PowerApps help in the take action part, I thought putting these two together would make a lot of sense for user group members. I’m happy to know that as a user ...
