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.

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?

Journey from “User” to “User Group Leader” This is a Q&A with Daniel Laskewitz, Dutch PowerApps and Flow User Group Leader Why did you initially submit an application to start a PowerApps User Group in the Netherlands? (DL): The Power Platform is a really powerful platform. It makes it possible for non-IT users to create IT-solutions. Lots of user groups are focusing on the IT-space instead of the power users. We wanted to also get the power users involved, so that and the fact that it’s really cool technology made us start the user group. How has the experience of being a user group leader been – what do you enjoy most about it? (DL): ...
