Creating Approval Processes using Power Automate and PowerApps – WRK404

All day workshop

In the land of officialism, the adaptable approval process is king. To understand the multitude of approval processes emanating from various business units, and have the ability to implement the most efficient solutions, is a highly sought skill set. A major component of this skill set is the understanding of available technology and maximally focusing it on creating solutions.

This workshop utilizes Microsoft Flow and PowerApps to forge your abilities in successfully implementing approval processes. To understand the approval process capabilities of Flow and PowerApps, we will start by detailing the standard out of the box approval process offered by Flow.

After understanding the possibilities of Flow’s approval process, the workshop will add the concept of integrating this approval process with PowerApps. With PowerApps providing a solid base for the user’s experience, we gain the ability to dynamically change this experience as the approval process advances.

Once these concepts have been assimilated, the advanced concept of a custom approval process will be explored. This concept will illuminate the process for creating custom approvals that allow an extremely large variation of business requirements.

This workshop, while detailing the technical parameters of the above approval process concepts, will also explain the latitude in which these processes are best implemented.
