After a few months without conference speaking events, I’m hitting the road again for M365 Conf in Las Vegas! Registration is open and I’m offering a discount code. Use JORDAN100 for $100 off registration. With the recent announcement of Microsoft 365 Copilot, this conference serves as an excellent opportunity to see it in action.
As for me, it’s going to be a busy week in Vegas.
First, I’ll be delivering two sessions:
– Power Apps: Tips from a First Time User
Having troubles getting started with Power Apps? You’re not alone. As InfoPath support comes to an end, it’s imperative that users understand the next form designer baked into SharePoint Online. In this session, I’ll share what I learned as a first-time user of Power Apps – both what works and what doesn’t. Together, we will cover the entire lifecycle of a SharePoint Online list form and address the basics: How do I actually build my first form? Where do I add fields and their defaults? Can I make it look pretty? Once I publish the form, how do users fill it out? This session will be peppered with my own personal pros and cons, pitfalls to be aware of but mostly centered around the things a user should consider before making the switch from any form designer to Power Apps.
– Six Power Automate Essentials to keep your Business Flowing:
Microsoft Power Platform’s offering Power Automate has revolutionized the way we work. In a matter of minutes and with no code required, a user can create an all-encompassing workflow to accommodate virtually any business process. As organizations adopt their new automations, users will start to see the need for enhanced flow concepts to satisfy more complex requests. This session will cover: – Power Automate Licensing – 6 enhanced flow concepts – Assign an approval task to a group and/or multiple users – Change throttling limits to avoid timeouts – Configure run after behavior – If versus Switch – Send HTTP action – Working with empty values We will apply each of these enhanced concepts to a business scenario and sample flows for each will be provided after the session.
Second, I’ll be hosting a lunch with alongside some of the most incredible women in tech. You can join me on Tuesday, May 2nd for as I share some of my secrets for navigating a career in Power Platform backed by the Microsoft Tech Community. This is meant to be an open forum/informal lunch – all are welcome and questions are encouraged!
Third, I’ll be spending some time in the Microsoft Community booth. Bring your questions, see how you can be involved, or just stop by for some swag!
Hope to see you there!
