Key Takeaways

  • Learn with Copilot: Copilots are an excellent opportunity for learners to explore Power Platform’s capabilities by attempting to build apps and flows with AI guidance.
  • Setting up: The first step in creating a new app involves setting up a table to capture essential details like ID, name, email, and additional columns for guests and children, with Copilot assisting in adding and modifying columns.
  • Example: Kylie’s example includes setting up a table to track RSVPs to an event. First, create a table in Dataverse to track RSVPs in the system. She then builds a shell app in Power Apps, which serves as a learning tool but should be recreated with best practices for actual use.
  • Copilot assistance: Copilot assists in quickly creating a functional app for collecting RSVPs by generating a table and app layout from basic input details.
  • Putting it to the test: With natural language, Copilot adds new records to the RSVP app, with the ability to customize further based on new requirements.
