PowerApps, Microsoft Flow, and the Common Data Service (CDS) are three areas that allow you and your organization to extend the functionality of Dynamics 365 that include:
• Creating targeted applications that connect directly to your Dynamics 365 data.
• Facilitate connections with other data sources.

In this course, students will have an opportunity to get real hands on experience with PowerApps, Microsoft Flow, and the Common Data Service. We will start with the basics and core concepts, work through multiple scenarios, and ultimately creating working connected applications before the end of the session.

Some of the topics included in this course will include:
• An overview of the Business Application platform as it pertains to Dynamics 365. We will review the basic components of PowerApps, Microsoft Flow, and CDS, as well as explore how to deploy them.
• Review the different options for connecting your applications to Dynamics 365; including how to connect to services, and work with the built-in gallery and form controls.
• Discuss how to work with core PowerApps tasks and functionality, including how to filter records, combine fields, work with related records, customize the application settings, and more.
• Explore the core concepts used in Microsoft Flow. We will examine how to use the Microsoft Flow designer, work with triggers and actions, and examine how PowerApps and Microsoft flow work together to create a complete solution.
• Understand the Common Data Service. We will look at how it fits into the platform, examine security, detail what the core data model looks like out of the box, and finally how you can customize and extend the it.
