This article involves an extensive demo on creating a custom connector for Yelp’s business search REST API. Since it is a free service, it actually makes a lot of sense to use as an example on how to create a customer connector for Microsoft Flow or PowerApps. Since I had to recreate the demo, I thought other people could benefit from the notes I put together; hence this article.

When left unchecked Office 365 groups can get out of hand very quickly. On the other hand, if you restrict users access too much to groups then they will never adopt them, and they are a very powerful tool for organizations. In this blog we discuss some of the business goals that will be solved by our site provisioning solution, how it is built, and the major takeaways for business users.

All organizations, regardless of their size, rely on external parties to support their daily operations. It is important to know what is the best method of sharing content out to these external users. When sharing to a few people Office 365 is very effective, but when sharing to many people a combination of Azure B2B and Extranet User Manager is more efficient and secure.

Sharing is All About Control

October 27, 2017

Denesh Sohan, Director of Products

We were taught to share as kids, but external sharing outside of your organization is a whole different set of manners! It is all about controlling the options:

  • WHO can share to external users;
  • WHICH external users can be shared with;
  • WHAT can be shared externally;
  • HOW externally shareable links can be used.
