Upload Multiple Files from #PowerApps to #SharePoint directly without the use of #PowerAutomate from Paulie M

With the “new” function Office365Groups you can make file-uploads from the PowerApp via Http request.

Thus, one is no longer bound to the transfer to PowerAutomate and its processing.

Cancel any approval in Power Automate from Tomasz Poszytek

Had already looked at the Aproval theme, which are stored in Dataverse, in the past. However, there were still too many unanswered questions for me and I had not been able to get the update via standard connectors.

Here Tomasz shows how this can be solved
-> this is also a trick on how to solve the 30 days flow timeout.

=> Tip: Just regularly start a flow that uses “Wait for Approval”. After a timeout of X days, you simply let this flow run again.

Power Automate Flows Vs Automate Rules from Daniel Christian

Find the SharePoint rule very exciting. The problem with PowerAutomate is that the flow starts with every change and only then the check takes place. This can cause a lot of unnecessary traffic (api calls).

But at most in combination of SharePoint rules, trigger Outlook (SharedMailbox) and then the normal flow, this is certainly very helpful.

Group By in Power Apps Gallery with Large SharePoint Lists from Reza Dorrani

Great video of Reza. Here I mainly took the “trick” with the choice column. Thus, I can bypass the Distinct and GroupBy delegation problem.

How to send a 1:1 message via flow in teams with your account

In this article I will show you how to send direct messages easily.

For a long time it was not possible to send a direct message via PowerAutomate to a user where I am the sender. It was only possible to communicate with someone as a flow bot.

Spoiler: According to my tests, this only works with Tenant users.

Step 1
Here we simply create a ‘Create a chat’ using the Teams connector. Under ‘Members to add’ you just need to enter the desired recipient.

Attention: As soon as you add more than one person, you will open a group chat -> where you can enter a name in the lower column.

Step 2
Select ‘Post message in a chat or channel‘ from the Teams connector here.

Then select as in the picture ‘Post as‘ -> User
and ‘Post in‘ -> ‘Group chat’ (Yes this is confusing, however this works)
Then in the ‘Group chat‘ field just refer to the conversation id from the previous step and you can enter your desired text under Message.

UseCases

  1. On the one hand, support accounts can send a message directly (via PowerAutomate) from a PowerApp (Canvas, ModelDriven) and you thus have a contact person right away.
  2. During on-boarding, for example, it also works better if you are received and greeted ‘personally’.

SharePoint Approval Timeline | Power Automate Approvals + Column Formatting + Approval History from Reza Dorrani

A really great video. Here you will learn how to create dynamic statuses in a SharePoint list, which include an approval process including history. I already think the idea is great, although of course I would much rather implement this in a PowerApp – but I have to admit that I could never implement this so quickly with a PowerApp.

Power Apps: Refresh Is Killing Your App Performance! Here’s an alternative method. from Paul O’Flaherty

Great demo start, how to refresh used data, which have been updated, best. In such a way that the performance of the app runs optimally.

Above all, I found the idea with the UpdateContext exciting, but also that PowerApps query which are identical, only perform every 30 seconds and block all identical queries until then. But to bypass this with a variable is just awesome.

Important: You only need Refresh() if the data is changed from outside the PowerApp OR you are using one of the tricks from this video.
