A huge thank you to all for supporting me by watching my videos, subscribing to my channel and blog. it couldn’t have been possible without your support and that’s why I decided to share my MVP award with you by unboxing it together.
I received the notification of my award via email on 1st Jan 2020 and I received the actual award kit itself on 20th Jan 2020. Since I wanted to unbox it together with you, I thought I will wait until I can make a video. It was hard to see the box but not be able to open it but I was happy that I am sharing it with you guys.
I shared the news on Linkedin and received 35000+ views on my post and that’s just amazing for me. Follow me on linkedin, twitter and if you’ve not subscribed to my channel, do it now. 🙂
This list might help you to refer to these blogs when you need it. If you haven’t read it yet, click on the link and read it. I have also provided the URL of Author’s website (just in case you want to check out their awesome work). Please note that my list doesn’t include blogs from MSFT Employees. And is based on no. of maximum views on a blog post per month for e.g. if in January there were 5 blogs (Blog Post 1, Blog Post 2, Blog Post 3, Blog Post 4, Blog Post 5, ) with no. of views 5000, 4000, 3000, 2000, 1000 respectively; I have picked Blog Post 1 as top of that month.
In this video, we will look at the top reasons for you to start using Power Automate. Also, this is the last episode of the series so I thought what’s better than a comparison. If you remember, in my first episode I asked you that have you found your reason to use Power Automate yet? Well, if you haven’t I am giving you the reasons in this episode.
Everything in the list above is in context of Dynamics 365. Out of the box (OOTB) Dynamics 365 workflows can’t do any of the above. You will have to create a custom workflow (#code) or a plugin (#code).
Hope I have given you reasons to start working on Power Automate.
This quick tip is part of my Thank God it’s Flow #TGIF series. There are two tips in this post:
Renaming your UI flow
Modifying and removing connections
Renaming your UI Flow: For general flows you just hit on the pencil/edit button and can rename them by clicking on the name at the top as shown below:
This doesn’t work for UI Flows. Instead you have to click on the name and the click the edit button shown in the screenshot below:
Modifying and removing connections:
All connections are available under Data on the left navigation. So if you reach maximum connection limit and are thinking how to delete/remove one. Here is the place. Just click on the ellipses (…) and select an option
Automation Testing of Dynamics 365– As a functional consultant and business user, we always perform unit testing manually. So I will demonstrate a scenario where we can automate it with the help of UI Flows. Our test scenario is; As a salesperson, I must be able to login to MS Dynamics 365 with office credentials and be able to create a customer/account.
MYOB AccountRight integration with Dynamics 365– As a functional consultant and business user I don’t know a straight forward integration between MYOB and Dynamics 365. So I will demonstrate that whenever you create an invoice in Dynamics 365, UI Flow will create a customer and then invoice in MYOB AccountRight.
I hope both my scenarios add some value to your business and daily work life. You can obviously extend it to any level.
