COURSE OUTLINE

Module 1: An Introduction to PowerApps

Let's get started with an introduction to Microsoft PowerApps. Traditionally building customised solutions for a business involved using a coding language to build an application from scratch. Typically, these solutions could often only be used within the business, making external use of the application a large hurdle to overcome. With PowerApps we can now not only easily build solutions, but we can also share them with users in our business. Deployment takes seconds and you could by testing your own app on your phone in no time. This module will overview the features of PowerApps, its benefits to a business and the variety of ways you can build and access your apps on different devices.

  • Be able to use sample apps

 

Module 2: Getting Started with PowerApps

To begin our journey through the PowerApps product, we will begin by looking at some of the templates that are available to view and edit. Microsoft's templates are a good starting point to discover what the product is capable off and how it can be achieved. We will also take the chance to have a tour of the editor so that students are familiar with the interface that they will be using over the two-day course. We will then build our first app from a static data source, showing students how to test their changes in the app instantly without the need to publish. We will also discuss how to configure your apps settings and how to access the app once it has been saved and shared.

Lessons

  • Building a new app from a data source
  • Add, edit and remove controls
  • Intro to Formulas
  • Testing an app
  • App Settings
  • Publish and Share Apps
  • Version History and Restore
  • PowerApps Mobile App

After completing this module, students will be able to:

  • Build a useful app using wizards in minutes
  • Make simple changes to existing apps
  • Know how formulas are used in PowerApps
  • Be able to test an app before it is shared
  • Restore a previous version of an app in the event of a problem
  • Use the mobile app to consume an app

 

Module 3: Branding and Media

In our next module, we will look at the options available to designers that allow them to implement their business branding. Not only will this deal with the aesthetics of your app, it will also introduce time-saving tips to help keep your branding consistent. We will also be discussing how to embed media into your app which can be useful if you are planning on an app that might promote video content.

Module 4: PowerApps Controls

So far in the course, we would have covered the basics of adding, editing and removing controls from our applications. The drive behind this module is to provide more depth on the categories of controls which can be used on a form. Your instructor will take you through each control and discuss its purpose and configuration. Tackling the wide selection of controls will help students recognise when to use the right control.

Lessons

  • Text Controls for Data Entry and Display
  • Controls - Drop downs, combo box, date picker, radio button and more
  • Forms - Add and edit data in underlying data sources quickly
  • Charts - present information in pie, line and bar charts

After completing this module, students will be able to:

  • Use a wide range of controls to give users the best data entry experience
  • Edit control properties
  • Use formulas to all multiple controls to interact with each other Present information using charts

 

Module 5: Data Sources and Logic

To help maintain and view essential business information, organisations often have a diverse selection of locations to keep different types of data. This could range from databases to file storage locations. PowerApps offers connections to a wide selection of data sources. We will show students to build their PowerApps to bring in data from a variety of sources as well as how they can utilise the common data source, a storage location unique to PowerApps.

Lessons

  • Data Storage and Services
  • How do I decide which database to use?
  • Connect to on-premises data - Gateway

  • Understand which data sources can work with large amount of data
  • Display data using controls

 

Module 6: Model-Driven Apps

Module one to five discussed how to work with the original type of PowerApp known as a Canvas App, Microsoft have now introduced a second type of app known as a model-driven app. Model driven apps involve a different development process to canvas apps. We will review this development process during this module.
Model-Driven apps can be quicker to build than canvas apps, but they are less customisable and typically have a higher cost, knowing which type of app to use is not always a simple decision, we will show you the pros and cons of each.

Lessons

  • What is a model-driven app
  • Where will my data be stored
  • How do create a model-driven app
  • Canvas vs model-driven summary

After completing this module, students will be able to:

  • Describe the difference between a canvas app and a model-driven app
  • Access model-driven apps
  • Edit model-driven apps

 

Module 7: PowerApp Integration

PowerApps is designed to easily connect to other business systems to read and update information. In this module we will discuss some simple ways to integrate PowerApps with key Office 365 systems including Teams, SharePoint Online and Flow. The result, is the ability to use a combination of systems to create solutions for a variety of business requirements.

Lessons

  • Embed PowerApps in Teams
  • Embed PowerApps in SharePoint Online
  • Start a Flow from a PowerApp

After completing this module, students will be able to:

  • Know how to make PowerApps available for users via Teams and SharePoint Online
  • Understand the benefits of using PowerApps with Flow

 

Module 8: Administration and Maintenance of PowerApps

In our last module for Microsoft PowerApps, we will be looking at how a business can manage their existing apps. This could be using analytics to discover usage trends. We will discover how to export and import apps, so they can be reused in other locations. Finally, we will discuss how Office 365 administrators can shape the PowerApps experience with high-level settings that help ensure data segregation and security.

Lessons

  • Identify which users have been using PowerApps
  • Reuse an app in another location (move from testing or development to production)
  • Review app usage
  • Prevent a user from using PowerApps
  • Manage environments

After completing this module, students will be able to:

 

  • Identify who is using PowerApps in your organization

I would never take another course that starts at 11AM and goes to 9PM again. The way the course was laid out really took away from the capturing of what was presented as it was 5-6 hours of watching a screen before getting to the actual labs. There has to be a better way to lay out this particular course. In my previous course, the lectures were broken up by labs which worked out fantastic and kept you engaged in the course. There were days when in order to actually complete the labs, would go over the 9PM day end time frame. Was able to get the primary labs done, but if you want to get all the content completed, you cannot complete it in the window of this course, you will need to come back on your own time.

Wasn’t as advanced as I thought it would be. There was an issue when the day my course was the first time they used a new platform.. from adobe to something called zoom; I had to call support line cause it stated our instructor wasn’t present. Thankfully I called cause everyone online was in the adobe virtual classroom waiting for what looked like a teacher who didn’t show up for class (IT didn’t get anything resolved until 10mins after start time). I felt like he was really getting hung up on very basic knowledge for the first half of the course (talking about how to create tabs and drag formulas as an example). I completed files a few times before he was done explaining. There was a scheduled fire drill for them (roughly 30mins)that also cut into our time, which wasn’t deducted from the hour lunch break or the two, fifteen min breaks. I also really wish he touched base more on the automating workbook functions portion which we barely did. I'm happy there were/are those study guides (learning videos) and exams to take on my own time that I hope after I've had the class are still available for me to learn from.
