    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: https://powerapps.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/sharepoint-delegation-improvements/

    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. However once you get into larger data sets your PowerApp will have some issues so in this blog I will attempt to explain what the delegation warning is and how you can fix your PowerApp.

    Delegation So what even is Delegation in PowerApps? When doing any sort of data manipulation for an app, PowerApps will try to push the processing of that data to the source system instead of doing all of the manipulation in the app. This is done to increase the efficiency of your app and r…

    One thing that comes up in every O365 rollout is the need for employees to have some sort of self-service support in O365. In the past this would mean the learning and development teams would have to create artifact on artifact of material to help employees find the answers they are looking for.

If you do not have an App Catalog in O365 and one will need to be created. You can install the learning pathways solution in one of two ways, the first is to use the pnp provisioning service (recommended), which will automatically create and set-up the site collection. The second option is to ma…

    Lots of updates and reminders to some already talked about features this week. The one I am most excited about is the new site branding and mega menu navigation (Roadmap IDs 33131, 33132, 33138, 43781). The rollout for this feature was pushed back a bit but is now rolling out. There has also been a delay in the rollout for SharePoint reminders based on date fields (Roadmap ID 34267), and the new icons for the waffle which are rolling out soon as well (Roadmap ID 45441).

    The updates this week also sent reminders for the Planner Notifications in a Teams activity feed that was covered last week (Roadmap ID 45878), as well as the opt-in toggle for try the early version of…
