Add Power BI report or dashboard in a Power App (model-driven app system dashboard)
SharePoint Europe
by Emily Langan
2d ago
A system dashboard in a model-driven app provides users an area to access reports that have been built into the app, or are embedded from Power BI. If you’ve build a report or dashboard in Power BI, you can make it accessible to your app users by first adding it to your app solution then configuring the app system dashboards. This works for both reports and dashboards in Power BI. Since it is essentially embedding the content, users will need to have access to the content in Power BI service in order to interact with it in your app. This means they will need the relevant Power BI license, and ..read more

Let’s learn how to implement Editable Grid and apply simple customization. As the name, the Editable Grid is a grid where we can do inline editing. In this blog, I create a custom table where we will implement the below scenario: – On Qty or Unit Price changed, set Total with formula Qty * Unit Price. – On Calculate Status changed, if set as “In Progress” then set Actual Start = Today’s date. If set as “Completed”, set Actual End = Today’s date. On the Parent Entity (Contact) where we want to place the Editable Gr ..read more

Making a Canvas app become Teams & SharePoint theme aware (with the help of the PnP Enhanced Power Apps WebPart)
SharePoint Europe
by Emily Langan
2d ago
By detecting the theme parameter that Teams passes to Power Apps canvas apps when added as Tabs or Personal apps, we are able to make them Teams theme aware, but the same does not happen when we add a Canvas app to SharePoint using the standard Power Apps WebPart. However, there is a free open-source sample in the Microsoft 365 PnP sp-dev-fx-webparts Repository (Enhanced Power Apps WebPart) that we can use to help achieving that. This WebPart adds extra features, such as dynamic resizing, theme awareness, and dynamic data detection. Configuring theme variables in ..read more

Sharing Dataverse for Teams apps outside the team
SharePoint Europe
by Emily Langan
2d ago
When you’re building Power Apps within a Microsoft Teams based Dataverse environment, the most common target group of app users is obviously people who belong to that team. This is very logical when the purpose of the app is to collaborate as a team on something that might have otherwise been an Excel sheet shared with all team members. The simplified table security model of Dataverse for Teams with Owner/Member/Guest (“OMG”) levels instead of custom security roles makes things easy to manage when everyone is equal. But what about when you’d need to have more granularity on who gets to do what ..read more

What is Power Pages? Duck test. Part 1

The Microsoft Power Pages was announced in a preview on the 24th of May 2022 as a fifth product in the Microsoft Power Platform family. It is a more advanced way of creating websites, similar to how we are using and building the Power Apps Portals. Yet, it is a separate application type (it has its own icon), built on top of Dataverse. It means you still can use all the advantages of Dataverse tables, processes, connectors etc. There are no licencing details yet, but you can start using it as a trial version for 30 days. The same as in Portals, each Power Pages site will be created as a trial ..read more

HOW TO SET MODEL-DRIVEN APP CUSTOM TABLE ICONS IN DATAVERSE
SharePoint Europe
by Emily Langan
2d ago
This post will explain how you can set the icon for a Microsoft Dataverse custom table (entity icon) in the Power Apps maker portal. When the custom tables are created for Dynamics 365 and model-driven app projects, updating the icon of the table is important because it is automatically assigned a puzzle piece icon by default. The icon of the table will be displayed in the sitemap, as the lookup value icon and in the primary image area for the Create form before the data is saved for the very first time. If the table does not have a child relationship (will never be used as a lookup), the tab ..read more
