My first Power App saved lives, How to design for impact

I built a Power App in the pandemic. As mental health waiting lists spiralled I looked to Power Apps to regularly update people on the list and get them to complete a form, rather than needing to wait for a series of letters in the post. The impact compounded getting people into therapy months sooner, several clients stated that had saved their lives.

Let me share tips and tricks of user centric design, Kaizen, Lean Six Sigma for Service and process mapping to help you 100x the impact of your Power Platform skills. I learned these skills in retail, FMCG and automotive, but I use them in healthcare. They can be applied in any sector.

Optimizing Power Automate Flows with External Configuration

As the complexity of Power Automate solutions grows, managing configurations becomes pivotal. Learn to elevate your approach by storing configurations externally in a database or a Dataverse table. This not only enhances accessibility over local files but also ensures heightened security, simplified backup procedures, and enables users to adapt settings without tinkering with the core flows or risking to break the structure of config files.

HOW:
Dive into the technicalities with:
– The Database Approach:
– Explore how to structure and store configurations in a database.
– Implement stored procedures to safeguard configuration integrity.
– Develop a user-friendly interface, granting users the ability to modify values without disrupting the database.

– The Dataverse Table Implementation:
– Uncover the process of configuring and utilizing Dataverse tables for external storage.
– Create seamless connections between Power Automate flows and Dataverse tables.

As well as compare the two approaches in terms of ease of setup, ease of use, performance, security, etc.
