Created Agile Workflows for SharePoint online with newly introduced features of office 365 i.e. MS Flow and Logic Apps
1. Microsoft Flow
Description: Microsoft flow is a cloud based product that allows users to create and automate workflows across multiple applications and services. Automated workflows are called flows. One can create copy of existing flow and reuse it on other sites.
Solution Developed: We have developed solution for multistep approval.
The requestor fills the SharePoint form by providing the metadata details like title, description etc. After request submission an approval email request is sent to the reviewer for his approval/rejection.
An email is also sent to the requestor letting them know that their request has been successfully submitted. A separate folder with the name of the item is created automatically in the different library.
Once the reviewer has approved the request, the request is then sent back to the manager for his approval.
SharePoint Framework is newly introduced feature to overcome drawbacks of SharePoint add-in models.
We have created client side webpart to create dashboard in order to track task status of individual users. Below are some characteristic of developed solution
Power Apps: PowerApps is a Microsoft product that offers services to build business apps that run in browsers and does not require any coding experience. PowerApps combines visual drag and drop concepts from PowerPoint with Excel like expressions for logic and working with data.
Use Case: Scenarios where there is less customization needed in the SharePoint out of the box form and UI of the form should be visually rich, in those cases Power Apps can be used for customizing the form. Below are some of the characteristics of Power Apps.
PowerApps can also be used in creating simple standalone apps.
The scenario for developed solution is as given below :
An asset request form has been created through which users will be able to place request for various assets. Users can also view their past asset requests and send a notification email to the approver.
This form is created using Power Apps.
Custom Survey using Microsoft Powerapps :-
