Creating Business Applications with Office 365: Techniques in Sharepoint, Powerapps, Power Bi, and More
Rhodes, Jeffrey M.
This book starts with configuration of SharePoint and Office 365 followed by your first example of PowerApps. You will lay the foundation for a help ticket application and see how to update a SharePoint list with PowerApps. You then will work with the jQuery open source library and learn how to use the developer tools within your browser. This allows you to customize data displays in SharePoint.
Switching back to PowerApps, you will build the final help ticketing system before using Power BI to see how to visualize the ticket information. After a quick detour on using iFrames in SharePoint, you will jump into building a power routing application using InfoPath and SharePoint Designer. You will even call SharePoint's web services from Designer to customize email notifications. You end the InfoPath set of chapters with a highly useful application for signing up for and managing attendance for training and other classes. Finally, you will add Google Analytics to track SharePoint usage.
