Microsoft recently released wave 2 of the Power Platform. In short, looks like a lot of re-branding with an eye to more functionality in the not too distant future.
I was recently looking to test out with the 'Dynamics 365 wave 2 release' Business Card Scanner software on my iPhone device and came across a full-stop issue...
I've always wanted to put this one together but none of my clients (since 2002 with version 1.0) have ever wanted to spend money for it - what does that say about it being a 'nice-to-have' instead of a 'must-have' requirement!!
This automation uses Flow to retrieve the latest currency rates from a public feed (thank you http://www.floatrates.com!!) and update those currencies set up within Dynamics 365. This flow provides the basics but certainly there is opportunity for improvement. Please do!
I was recently looking adding the capability to enter post-meeting notes via speech to meet the sales rep requirement of wanting to simplify the entering of meeting notes. Using the native microphone dictation services proved effective in achieving these goals; however, the number of clicks to achieve this goal was found numerous that lessened the convenience potential and thus usage and adoption. A future option will look at simplifying the ability to access the last Appointment for additional sales rep convenience and adoption gains.
I recently came across a technical requirement to remove the banner graphic from the top of the default Forum page of the Community Portal. This was a little trickier than expected!
A new feature with the latest release is the ability to redirect users to a 'Under Construction' page and prevent anyone from accessing the site.
Portal project follow general Dynamics project plans but include , interface and process definitions not just for administrators and user roles of the native Dynamics application but also for administrators and user roles of the portal application and , greater interface detail is required to be defined of the portal interface components. In other words, processes and interfaces are more complicated and require greater attention to detailing and successfully building their behavior.
