Treat PowerApp On Phone Like Apple Test Flight

Treat PowerApp On Phone Like Apple Test Flight

Most of us get frustrated that the PowerApps we build do not show up as individual apps on someone’s phone.

Well, here’s an idea: Go in to PowerApps on your phone. Find the app you built. Create a shortcut for it right on your phone’s main screen. Done. And, it has a custom icon because you add that directly when building the PowerApp.

Breathing New Air Into Dynamics CRM

Breathing New Air Into Dynamics CRM

I could not agree more with Juuka Niiranen’s latest blog post regarding Power Apps breathing new life into Dynamics CRM.

Lately I’ve been having this feeling of premonition combined with dejavu. Like being special agent Dale Cooper, investigating the events that are taking place in a strange town in Pacific Northwest, far away from your normal surroundings, encountering The Giant in a dream sequence and being told that “it is happening again”. Only this time the Giant is Power Platform and the place isn’t Twin Peaks but rather Redmond.

Create An App Instead Of Using Business Unit Security

Create An App Instead Of Using Business Unit Security

I heard great commentary on a podcast suggesting the use of an App instead of implementing business unit security. I can definitely see this as an option in some cases. The App could limit the views that someone has and in essence the records they have access to via those views. Sure is simpler than adding the overhead of business units if it is not truly required.

Was thinking about this after listening to The CRM MVP Podcast, episode 53: Top 10 FUNCTIONAL TRICKS in Dynamics 365.

Dynamics 365 for Outlook is blank: Solution

Dynamics 365 for Outlook is blank: Solution

A client recently reported that they can’t find any information under Dynamics 365 for Outlook. This issue only happened for them recently. Trying to uninstall and re-install Outlook for them, disconnecting and re-connecting to the Organization, and a lot other troubleshooting strategies that you can find online did not fix this issue.

We ended up opening a ticket with Microsoft Support. The fix is as listed:

1. Go to Start on your Computer
2. Type regedit

3. Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER > Software>Microsoft>Office>16.0>Outlook>Security

5. Name the folder EnableRoamingFolderHomepages
6. Right click on the folder and Modify
7. Change the Hexadecimal Value data to 2

Now, restart Outlook and wait for a minute. Then click on Dynamics 365 or CRM for Outlook tab on the left bottom corner and you will see all the information that is synced through your CRM.
