Use of Microsoft Teams has exploded for many companies during the global pandemic. For many organizations Teams has become the app that connects all their employees together. Power Platform apps, like Power Apps, Power Automate, and Power Virtual Agents, provides a low-code platform for extending that functionality. In September, 2020 Microsoft announced Dataverse for Teams. Dataverse for Teams is included in the Teams license so you can build apps, flows, and bots that make use of relational data storage, rich data types, and enterprise-grade governance without additional expense.

In this workshop we'll look at how to use Dataverse in the Power Platform to extend the Teams application. By the time you leave you'll have an integrated Teams application and bot that can help your employees manage their presence as people move back into the office after the Pandemic.

We'll cover the following with slides and hands-on exercises:

  • What does the Teams License cover
  • Differences between Dataverse (CDS) and Dataverse for Teams
  • Creating Dataverse Relational Tables
  • Securing Dataverse for Teams Tables
  • Building a Power App with Dataverse for Teams
  • Integrating Dataverse for Teams with a Flow
  • Accessing Dataverse for Teams from a Bot
  • Managing Dataverse for Teams Environments
  • Deploying Custom Apps, Bots, and Flows to additional Teams
