PowerApps Delegation Warning

Update Aug 15 2019 - Microsoft has updated PowerApps to allow for some complex SharePoint data delegation, this will hopefully resolve most issues you were seeing when working with SharePoint data: If you've tried to use the Filter, LookUp or Search actions in PowerApps you have seen the yellow warning error that shows a 'delegation warning' and you might have even ignored it because your PowerApp was working fine in testing.

SharePoint Site Theming: Header Background Colors

As Microsoft rolls out the new Mega Menu experience for the Modern UI some of you may be wondering where these colors come from.

From left to right in the image below we have the four background options, which I'll call by the names of their color labels, Background Color (White) Theme, Neutral Light Theme, Light Theme, Dark Theme. I used the Microsoft Theme generator ( ) to create my theme and applied the theme to my tenant using the Add-PnPTenantTheme ( ) command to apply the following theme in PowerShell, I've also added comments to lines that impact themes for your reference. @{ "themePrimary" = "#0a162b"; #Theme Dark Local "themeLighterAlt" = "
