PowerApps & Flow User Group App for Leaders, Hosts, Organisers and Coordinators

Hello Readers and Viewers

As User Group organisers, it becomes difficult for us to track the attendance of participants mostly due to the format of the meeting. In our last week’s UG we were prepared to break the ice and created an app to check in attendees.

Following is what you can do with the app:

  1. Register attendees as members
  2. Update member details
  3. Check In attendees
  4. Draw Raffle (if and when it’s available)

What can you get out of it:

  1. Track the attendance of your members
  2. If members are not regular, send them a survey for what they want to see
  3. Send them a FormsPro survey to get feedback
  4. Keep member details up to date
  5. Instead of drawing raffle the conventional way, use PowerApps

Note: Shuffle formula and collection is used for Raffle draw

Data Source: OneDrive (Excel Web)

Tables used: Registered Members and Checked In Members to draw raffle

If you’re a User Group leader and want to use this app; you don’t really have to make any changes except for the connection and start using it. I have uploaded it on github. More instructions on there:

PowerApps for Business Users & Consultants: Episode 6- Embedding Canvas App in Model Driven App

Hi Readers and Viewers

In this episode, we are going to look at, How to embed a canvas app into a model driven app.

We talk about the following limitations:

  1. One canvas app per model driven form.
  2. Changes in each app must be published separately to reflect.

We talk about some tips:

  1. Change format of the section of the field where you have enabled canvas app control.
  2. Make the field appear in the middle of section so that your canvas app can get most space.
  3. Rename the display name of the field to something small so that it takes less space.
  4. If you’re adding control to a very important field like ‘Account Name’ maybe add it twice on the form on different location.

We look at different layouts where the app looks better:

  • One column tab
  • Two columns tab
  • Three columns tab
