Learn about custom connectors and how you can take advantage of the connector platform so that you can extend your data sources for Microsoft Flow and PowerApps. In this session, we will share our roadmap and vision for the connector platform, including a unified connector story across Power BI, PowerApps, and Flow. In this demo heavy session, you will learn how to securely build custom connectors to enrich your applications, and how to publish and distribute them for your own organization or for others to use.

Provisioning Automation for Modern Sites, Office 365 Groups, and Teams

Friday, January 11th at 3:30 PM – 4:30 PM in 717 A/B

While Microsoft’s modern experience has really come together, there are so many ways to create sites, groups, and Teams. In this session we will discuss how to standardize both the approach and the result with a request form (PowerApps), optional approvals (Flow), and provisioning process (PowerShell, PnP, Azure Automation).

In this session we will leverage an open source solution with PowerApps, Flow, and PowerShell to create a self-service request process for Teams, Office 365 Groups, and SharePoint Team and Communication sites. You can customize both your templates and process and add in an approval process.

Read the full site provisioning whitepaper or take a look on Peter Carson's GitHub. Everything is open source.
