October 01, 2020

Microsoft has recently embedded Power Platform capabilities in Microsoft Teams, meaning customers can now make personal apps, chat bots and more using low-code tools at no additional cost.

Microsoft has added these capabilities to meet the needs of a rapidly changing work environment by tailoring its digital workspace. With Teams and the Power Platform, businesses can quickly adapt processes and facilitate better communication between employees.

Let’s take a look at some of these new features and how some companies have already applied them to their organization.

The course content was very good and I can see myself using a lot of the features demonstrated today. It was a bit challenging during the morning session with one participant who did not have the most up to date version of the software, which was hard for her, and also held up the session a bit. The afternoon session flowed better and I got a lot of value out of the dashboards and slicing. -Analysis & Dashboards Brisbane
