An Introduction to Microsoft 365
In this module, we cover how to add the Power Apps for Teams app, directly to Microsoft Teams, which will become our hub for designing business solutions. We will also provide a brief overview of the Microsoft Teams interface to discuss key elements that are essential to Microsoft Dataverse for Teams creations. This module covers the following lessons:
This module will cover how to set up tables in your Microsoft Dataverse for Teams environment. Each Team utilizing Microsoft Dataverse for Teams has its own environment where you can design your database. You can create tables, columns, rows, views, and relationships to model your data. The tables that you design can be used to support your apps, chatbots, reports, and flows, acting as a centralized data source that you can tap into. Ensuring your data tables are correctly configured and secured is essential for success in other areas of Microsoft Dataverse for Teams. This module covers the following lessons:
In this module, we will design the interfaces that your Team’s members are going to use to add new rows of data to your tables. We will introduce you to Power Apps for Teams which is tailored to work with Microsoft Dataverse for Teams. The app itself can be based on an existing sample or you can choose to create your own app. This module will also cover adding components to your apps, writing formulas, introducing media, and using variables. We will then show you how to test, publish and use our apps within a Team. Discussed in this module are the following lessons:
In this module, we will cover using Power Virtual Agents within Microsoft Teams. Power Virtual Agents allows us to design chatbots. A chatbot is an interface where an individual can type in a question or request information or support. The chatbot will look at the entry and interpret a logical response. Power Virtual Agents allows us to design the pace of these conversations. The full tool allows chatbots to be designed for enterprise use and for external facing customers. Within Teams, these chatbots are only applied to a Team but are free whereas the full tool is not. We will show you how to get started with designing a chatbot, implement logic, test, and publish a chatbot to a Team. As Microsoft Teams is a chat-enriched platform, understanding how to build chatbots can help you field common conversations that emerge within your Team. This module covers the following lessons:
With the ability to create chatbots and apps as well as all the capabilities Teams has to offer, it can prove to be a challenge to form a narrative between these services. Enter Power Automate in Teams. Power Automate offers Teams users the option to create business processes that bring together services from across Microsoft 365 and Microsoft Dataverse for Teams. Power Automate in Teams prioritizes workflows that interact with features in Teams, such as chat and channel posts. It can also interact with elements of Microsoft Dataverse for Teams. This module provides instructions on how to get new business processes up and running quickly, and how to customize workflows further to enhance their logic and reach. In this module we will discuss:
Data within our tables in Microsoft Dataverse for Teams can tell a story. But often displaying the data as a table does not offer an invested party much insight into this information. Microsoft Dataverse for Teams can connect to Power BI Desktop to allow you to design reports against the live data in your custom tables. Although there is a lot of value in this, it is worth noting that Power BI does require additional licensing for the service to work. In this module, we will show you how to connect to your data tables in Microsoft Dataverse for Teams and use Power BI Desktop to design and publish an engaging report. Once published we will show you how to schedule the report to update on its own so that it is displaying up to date information. In this module we will discuss:
