PowerApps Security Trimming

In this video, I outline a method to implement Security Trimming/Custom Permissions inside your PowerApps application. This approach utilizes a SharePoint list and native PowerApps functionality to accomplish the security trimming in three easy steps: 1) create the SharePoint list 2) Filter that list by the current logged in user in PowerApps 3) Set the visibility of your objects to show only if the user is in that approvers list.

There are other methods that you can use to implement security trimming which I’ve outlined in my corresponding blog post. I include links with how to implement as well as pros/cons of each approach:

I’m only highlighting ways to security trim WITHIN THE POWERAPPP ITSELF. This post is not meant to address how you could apply security trimming to your underlying SharePoint data source. If you want some ideas on how you can manage the security of your underlying SharePoint datasource, check out Laura Rogers blog here: which runs through several options for “locking down” your SharePoint list data sources so that users aren’t going to the list directly to edit data.

Hey Siri, Create a Support Ticket – with Eric McKinney from G&J Pepsi

Hello #PowerAddicts!

In this video, I had the pleasure to chat with Eric McKinney from G&J Pepsi who watched mine and Jon Levesque’s video on connecting Siri to Flow and then made a support ticket system out of it within a few hours.

Join us to learn how to use the iOS shortcuts app to trigger Siri, provide some inputs and then send it to Microsoft Flow to create a new ticket in a SharePoint List.

This makes it much quicker (like 5 seconds) for G&J Pepsi’s employees to create a support ticket.

Alexa Skill with Flow – Post Message to Teams

In this video, I show how you can create an Amazon Alexa Skill that calls a Microsoft Flow HTTP Endpoint to post a message to a Microsoft Teams Channel. This method lets you take your existing Flow skills and create an Alexa skill with ZERO code! The Flow does all of the work and you just point your Alexa Skill to the Flow.

I did a video with Jon Levesque on his YouTube channel a week or so ago where I show how to get started using Alexa with Flow. In that video I show some of the basics of Alexa Skills and demo a simple use case where Alexa returns back a list of your Planner tasks. If you missed that video here’s a link:

In this video, I expand on that to show how you can pass a parameter from Alexa to Flow so that you can tell Alexa what message you want to post to Teams. I’ve created a corresponding blog post which has step by step directions and the JSON code needed for the Response which you can find on my blog

Developing your personal brand with Troy Hunt

I have a chat with Troy Hunt, creator of Have I Been Pwned about developing your personal brand. Troy’s answers to my questions can be related to anyone who is a public figure, even if it’s a fraction of what Troy does such as blog or Twitter comments.

Note: this chat was done over Skype for Business and is raw footage. I was using WIFI from the Portugal AirBnB I was staying in at the time and the first couple of minutes are not the greatest video quality for some reason. Sometimes it is a bit laggy. It is fine to listen to and have it play in the background while you multitask
