This book will help you build complete solutions that often involve storing data in SharePoint, creating a front-end application in Power Apps or Forms, adding additional functionality with Power Automate, and effective reports and dashboards in Power BI.
This book offers a deep dive into Power BI, including working with JSON, XML, and Yes/No data, as well as visualizing learning data and using it to detect inconsistencies between Excel files. You’ll also see how to connect to Remedy and to the help system you will have created. Under author Jeffrey Rhodes’s guidance, you’ll delve into the Power Apps collection to learn how to avoid dreaded “delegation” issues with larger data sets. Back on applications, you will create a training class sign-up solution to only allow users to choose classes with available seats.

Rounding things out, you’ll save Forms attachments to SharePoint with Power Automate, create your own “Employee Recognition” app with all of the Power Platform and Teams, add or edit weekly status reports, and learn how to create reservation and scoring applications.
