About this class

Audience: Microsoft 365 & SharePoint Power Users, no-code business solution builders, approval process creators, Power Apps power users.

Course Overview

Are you a SharePoint Power User or form and workflow creator?  After you have taken our Power Apps and Power Automate courses, this course is the perfect extension of what you have learned.  Put your knowledge to work, in this real-world app with its own approval process built right in.  End users who fill out a request form will be presented with a simple interface, and approvers will also be taken to the same simple form screen, where they can approve or reject the form in one central interface.  No need for confusing tasks in different lists and other locations across flow and Teams. Everything that the end users and approvers interact with in this approval process is done in the Power App.

Build the Lists and Power App

This full business solution lab takes you through the process of building the necessary SharePoint lists, and the standalone canvas app. 

Approval Logic and Testing

As you work through our lab and video instructions, learn how to build the formulas and logic that are used to make this process run.  This solution is tested throughout the process, and a full run-through is done at the end.
