Power Apps and Power Automate: Building Business Solutions Course Outline

Building Business Solutions with Power Apps and Power Automate is a 2-day training class designed for people who have already begun working with PowerApps and are ready to move their Power Apps and Power Automate skills to the next level. This class is designed for the "citizen developer" (an individual with subject matter expertise but with little formal IT background) who is developing applications on their own or in coordination with "pro" developers.

Students will learn best practices for building Model-Driven (Dataverse) and canvas apps and flows to update and manage content in Azure SQL, SharePoint Online, Excel workbooks, and OneDrive for Business.

Students should already be familiar with Microsoft Excel, Office 365 and SharePoint Online. It is also recommended that students attend ONLC's Power Apps: Introduction for End Users before taking this more advanced level class or have the equivalent hands-on experience with PowerApps and Power Automate.
