Power Baseball League: We’re Back!

Welcome back Power Baseball fans!

Kylie and I took some time away to enjoy the holidays. We hope you all had a wonderful holiday season and your 2021 is off to a fabulous start!

Both of us started new jobs in the past couple of months so we’ve each been busy acclimating ourselves to these new roles. We both took the leap into the partner world as Solution Architect’s. Both of us have already applied some of the knowledge we learned through this joint initiative! From our perspective that’s great validation of the time we spent on this!

Speaking of validation – by far the coolest confirmation of this work has been from YouTube viewer Frank who left a comment on one of the videos seeking some clarification on the Power Automate flow we built connecting Customer Voice to our Power App in Dynamics. After getting the addition detail he needed he kindly came back and commented:

Greetings, I just wished to advise that with your added knowledge I was able to complete the functional steps in my dev project. Thank you very much for your assistance.

What a great feeling to know that our information was consumed and used in a real world application! We’re so grateful for Frank and many others that have tuned into follow along this journey.

After reflecting on the project and looking back at our topics, we realized we haven’t spent a great deal of time actually configuring our app. As our discussion unfolded, we realized that in order to ensure we’re delivering on our goal (to share relevant, functional information with our viewers on tactical ‘how to’ topics), we decided it’d be wise to spend some time in the app preparing it for what our fictitious baseball association would require out of the gate. We intend to spend some time covering things such as:

  • Entity architecture
  • View management
  • UCI View Editor
  • Chart creation
  • Dashboard creation
  • Power Automate – On-Demand Flows
  • Email Templates
  • Marketing Lists

This gives us plenty to run with over the next couple of months.

We are excited to continue and we look forward to hearing your comments and questions. And don’t forget, if you want to join in on the fun we’d LOVE to have you on as a guest! Perhaps you have another topic you’d like to explore with us – don’t hesitate to reach out to us to discuss!

Remember, swing for the fences! (Actually that’s horrible baseball advice – solid defense and consistent on-base percentages will go a long way to winning games, but that’s a topic for another day…and a different blog all together!)
