Building Modern SharePoint Solutions with PowerApps and Flow – PraireDevCon Session Deck

I had the distinct pleasure of speaking at Prairie Dev Con in Regina on October 16, 2018.  Had some fantastic attendees that I hope came out of my session with a better understanding of what can be done with PowerApps and Flow.  As promised here is my slide deck from that session.

Setting SharePoint List-Item Level Security With Microsoft Flow

As I stated in my previous post I wanted to demonstrate how to do something in SPD Workflows as well as with Microsoft Flow.  In this second part, I am going to be setting SharePoint list-item level security with Microsoft Flow.  The steps are very similar, but I still wanted to provide examples for anyone just working away at some of these types of requirements within their own environments.

Setting Item Level Security With SharePoint Designer Workflows

Something that I have come across a lot is solutions that require setting item level security after a particular occurrence on the list item (or in some workflow process).  Specifically what I wanted to look at was how to do it using SharePoint Groups as opposed to AD users, though I will probably cover that later.  This is going to be a two-part post as well because I am also going to do it with Microsoft Flow in my next blog.  Moving forward, whenever I do a SharePoint Designer Workflow blog I am going to try and do a corresponding one for Flow as well.

PowerShell Scripting vs Clicking in the GUI – Presented to the Granite State SharePoint User Group

This evening I had the extreme pleasure of giving a PowerShell and SharePoint presentation to the Granite State SharePoint User Group in New Hampshire.  Presenting remotely was a bit of a challenge as I missed out on the pizza 🙁 and we had a bit of trouble with my demos.  Well not really the demos, more the fact that my laptop could not run the VMs and maintain a Skype session.  Now, this is not a bad thing about Skype.  It actually did really well.  The issue is that I tend to go a bit overboard with my VMs.  For on-prem demos, I run four fully decked out VMs.  I have a DC, SQL Server, SP2016 App and an SP2016 Web server all running on my laptop (yes my laptop is awesome).  That uses up all the resources so I couldn’t display my demo at the same time.

 

That being said I think the session went awesome and I hope everyone enjoyed it.  As promised I am providing the slide deck.  You can access it here.

A huge thank you to Julie Turner and the other members of the user group.  Thanks for joining me.
