When running a small business or even a small department in a big company, there are many tasks to take care of, including day-to-day business accounting and marketing. Often, there are not enough hours in the day, and startups typically have smaller, fairly mobile staffs. This session covers Microsoft’s new PowerApps, which allows for the easy integration of multiple line of business systems. Learn how to improve efficiency by automating your processes using a combination of PowerApps and Microsoft Flow. This session includes a demonstration of how to create a PowerApp as a timesheet system for projects, as well as a custom social media interface.

twitter-bird One last TweetJam about Ignite:

“Our final pre-conference TweetJam will be held on Tuesday, September 13th at 1:00PM Pacific Time. The objective of this TweetJam is to generate excitement, equip attendees with the information they need to make the event successful and introduce the Microsoft Ignite host. Be sure to follow @MS_Ignite and use #msignite in your tweets. We look forward to your participation!”

Me at Ignite

Besides presenting these sessions, I’ll be around, most likely in the expo hall most of the time.  I’ll be hanging out at the Harmon.ie booth, too, so stop by and say “hi”!  Also, be sure to follow me and my SharePoint training company (@IWMentor) on twitter, and follow the #MSIgnite hashtag as well.
