PowerApps and Flow for No-Code SharePoint- FULL DAY

Thursday, 5/24/2018

Are you a SharePoint power user who builds no code business solutions? SharePoint has always been a powerful platform for those of us in this role, because we can build what we need, quickly and easily. This applies to sites, lists, and especially forms and automated workflows. As you may have heard, InfoPath and the data view web part are in the past, they are dying technologies. PowerApps and Microsoft Flow are the new no-code tools for power users in SharePoint and Office 365. In this workshop, learn how to work through a solution that was built the old way, and build it with PowerApps and Flow instead. Some specific PowerApps concepts that will be taught are cascading drop-downs, forms with parent-child relationships, and pre-populating user information in forms. Microsoft Flow will be used to build the automated approval process for request forms that are filled out.

Funko, Inc. – building a dynamic intranet to keep the toys on time

Monday, 5/21/2018 11:15

Funko is pop culture, pop culture is Funko. Both their business and tech journey are fascinating – and growing – to keep ahead of the Pop! curve, keep collectibles in demand, and keep their intranet in check. Recently, they were featured on SharePoint Swoop – the intranet makeover show. In three, fast-paced days, they got help from three superhero Microsoft MVPs, plus access to some new tech toys from Microsoft (hub sites, PowerApps updates, custom site designs and hot-off-the-presses news features like email news digest). Join us as they all share their story of then, now and the path forward. This will be a panel discussion with time for Q&A with both Funko and the MVPs.
Speakers: Sarathy Annamraju (CIO, Funko), Kurt Dicus (Snr. Director of IT), Sue Hanley (SharePoint MVP), Laura Rogers (SharePoint MVP, IW Mentor), Ben Niaulin (SharePoint MVP, ShareGate), and Mark Kashman (Snr. Product Manager, Microsoft).

Have you built approval workflows with SharePoint 2010 out-of-box workflows or SharePoint Designer task actions in the past? PowerApps and Microsoft Flow present a great opportunity to modernize and increase the capabilities of your current automated business processes. The depth of your automated processes may range from simple to complex, and they all vary when it comes to flexibility and functionality. In this session, you will learn the capabilities of Microsoft Flow and how to successfully develop your next process automation in SharePoint.
