In today's industry, custom settings and applications are not only in high demand but have become standard practice. To achieve this, the administrator must be capable of building new tools, automating processes, and making it easy for end users to access. This used to be a daunting task that generally meant outsourcing projects, hiring development or hanging a "do not disturb" sign on the already overworked admins' door and hoping for the best months... or years later. Luckily this process has gotten much easier with tools that offer "code-less" or what I like to call nearly code-less automation. This empowers admins to develop tools and automation in minutes and hours, which would have previously taken weeks or longer. And there is very little need to understand deep code. In this session, we will take a look at Power Apps, Adaptive Cards, and Power Automate features that can be leveraged in Microsoft Teams with in Minutes. And yes, there will be live demos to show how easy this can be.

You will learn:

  • Code less and automate more
  • Get more functionality out of Microsoft Teams by using Power Platform
  • Learn about features like adaptive cards
