SharePoint Warsaw 2019 recap – organizer PoV

The SPS Warsaw 2019 is over. It was held on 6th of April 2019 in Warsaw, Centrum Prasowe Foksal (Foksal Press Center).

End user receives pop-up asking for permission when launching PowerApps

PowerApps

I’m a big fan of working with PowerApps and creating business solutions using that tool. Until last week I wasn’t aware, that when I use specific permissions to access data sources (SharePoint in that case) inside my app, the end user who is going to use that app will be asked for permissions, to be able to use that application.

PowerApps hand written signature

PowerApps+Flow logo

Customer asked me if this is possible to add handwritten signature to a PDF generated using tools available in Office 365. My first thought was “no”, then I checked that there is “Pen input” control in PowerApps, so it was like “yes”. Then again, after searching “how” this signature can be put inside a document, I thought this is a “no”.
