What did the community think about Sol Day?
Have a read of the comments on this post to see what attendees thought of the day.

"There are not enough humans to code fast enough to build 450 million apps."

There's never been a better time to learn the Power Platform and become a highly-paid, no-code developer.

"At Microsoft, a simple run of the numbers on how many apps will be built in the next five years shows how critical low-code and no-code software will become. Microsoft expects 500 million new apps to be built in the next half decade, which is more than all the apps built in the last 40 years.

“If that’s true, 450 million have to be built with a low-code tool,” said Charles Lamanna, corporate vice president of the citizen applications platform at Microsoft. “There are not enough humans to code fast enough to build that many. Professional developers should focus on harder challenges than another expense submission form or approval form.”?

SOLUTIONS DAY AGENDA

 Solution #1 

Creating a document archival process with SharePoint and Power Automate

When old procedures, policies, or drafts are no longer needed and shouldn't appear in search results anymore (potentially confusing users seeking the most current, accurate information), we are sometimes tempted to delete them. However, some documents need to be kept longer or may need to be referenced in a year or more even if we don't actively use them anymore (or if we don't want others to).

YOU WILL LEARN HOW TO ...

Build an approval process that triggers from the Status Column.

Keep primary libraries clear whilst preserving archived documents for the future

Create Document Status Column for SharePoint Libraries.

Automatically move the files to a secure location after approval occurs

reasons to WATCH

  • You will see how SharePoint document libraries can do more than host files
  • Pick up plenty of actionable tips and tricks to use in your own solutions Power Automate and SharePoint solutions.
  • Understand how to build an approval process in Power Automate
  • You can ask Nate questions throughout the session to understand why and how he built it.

This session will be presented by Nate Chamberlain MVP.

How to create, manage and inspect your inventory using the Power Platform

During this session, we will show you the steps to plan and conceptualise the solution and create a prototype. We will also explain how we leverage Power Automate and Power Apps to remind and schedule inventory checks based on a list of information stored in SharePoint.

You'll find out how you could structure the data for entry-level Microsoft 365 licences—proving that a fully-functional solution like this can be achieved without Premium connectors.

Automate a weekly reminder of upcoming due dates for your team using Power Automate

Whether your lists are helping track upcoming events, due dates, expirations, or deadlines, your team could probably use some help staying informed and on track as items are added and updated. We can use Power Automate to create a weekly digest or reminder of upcoming dates and share that via a Teams channel conversation post or an email. In this session, you'll learn how to create a reminder solution that filters a list of items to those due in the current week and shares them consistently and automatically.

YOU WILL LEARN HOW TO ...

Automatically filter a list's items to those with dates occurring that week.

How to post upcoming task dates from the list into your chosen teams channel

This session will be presented by Connor Deasey

 Solution #5 

Managing your User accounts with the Power Platform

A new hire starts, and who has all the information about the new employee? I bet it's usually HR. What about when a user quits? Goes on leave? Most of the time, the IT department isn't the first to know. When they find out, it's usually through a ticket that may or may not have all the information.

What if you could give HR (or, frankly, anyone else) the ability to manage users in Azure AD without giving them access to Azure AD? You could also put specific controls around what they can update when approval is needed and even the formatting of updates. In this session, we'll walk you through the structure and process for creating a solution using the Power Platform to do just that!


YOU WILL LEARN HOW TO ...

Create a SharePoint list to manage your users.

Integrate the SharePoint list with Azure AD to make updates to users.

Use Power Apps to build an interface for managing user updates.

REASONS TO WATCH

  • IT isn’t always up-to-date with changes to employees; provide that ability to people who are.
  • Limit how and what properties can be updated in Azure AD.
  • You want someone to make updates but not provide Azure AD access.

This session will be presented by Ben Stegink, Intelligink.

What is the Power Platform and why should I learn it?

Power Platform is the name Microsoft uses to denote a set of 4 services that help power users build solutions on top of Office 365 without any coding skills.  

Power Apps

Power Apps is a suite of apps, services, connectors and a data platform that provides a rapid development environment to build custom apps for your business needs.

Power automate

Power Automate allows you to create automated workflows between a massive selection of services to synchronise files, get notifications, collect data, and more.

Power BI

Power BI allows you to visualise data from various data sources to build reports and dashboards. Many different controls enable you to present the data to make it easy to understand.

Power Virtual Agents

Power Virtual Agents lets you create chatbots that can respond to questions typed in by customers, other employees, or visitors to your website or service. BOTS can be created using a visual builder that requires no coding knowledge.

Why is the Power Platform an excellent career choice?

  • In-Demand: There's now massive demand for No-Code developers who can build solutions ranging from vacation booking to time recording apps.
  • Easy to Learn: In the Collab365 Academy, we welcome beginners. We've plenty of training material to lower you into the Power Platform as well as other complimentary services such as Teams and SharePoint.
  • It's great fun: Being able to build an application so quickly is rewarding and allows you unleash your creative side.
  • Work from home: As Power Platform solutions are all built (in the Cloud), it's really easy to work remotely and this is what many companies accommodate. 
  • Well Paid: If you search for roles requiring Power Platform skills, it's not uncommon to see roles offering over $100K.
  • No need to code: Learning to be a developer, who can code proficiently, can take years. The Power Platform has been created to support business users who have no-coding knowledge. You can build a very powerful application in days not months/years.
  • It's the future-proof: Over the next few years, we're going to see a world where many jobs disappear through automation. Having skills that are in-demand will ensure longevity in your career.
