Power Platform – Business Expert and Admins working together
I had the pleasure to present together with Daniel Laskewitz during the European SharePoint Conference 2022 in Kopenhagen. Some take-aways from our session.
European SharePoint Conference 2022
During the week of November 28th – December 1st, the European Collaboration Summit 2022 was held in Kopenhagen. Alhough the name might imply otherwise, this large contention focussed on many Microsoft (365) cloud platforms and functions – including the Power Platform, Microsoft Viva, OneDrive, security & compliance and more.
I was very proud (and honoured) to be speaking at this event. One of the largest conventions I was invited to be part of. It’s great to meet that many other enthusiasts, both speakers or attendees. And don’t forget the organizers themselves 🙂
The session I presented together with Daniel centered around the Power Platform. That might be somewhat outside of my comfort-zone, but not quite. I believe that governance, compliance and risk goes beyond the more standard platforms within Microsoft 365. And the Power Platform is definitely one of those.
So during our session, Daniel and myself embarked on a small journey. Starting somewhere in 2018/2019, when we did a similar session. But during that time, we had a different approach: citizen developer versus the admin. But times have changed as we discussed during the introduction part of the session…
During the session we talked about and showed many components from the admin-center. We also looked at how Dataverse for Teams Apps might result in some unexpected scenario’s – as this requires a specific Power Platform connector and also creates its own environments.
We introduced some new features (either in preview or just GA). Including Managed Environments. These allow you to set specific functions for that environment. For example: limit sharing of Apps and Flows to specific users. But take note: this does require additional licenses for the users accessing the environment.
A large part of the session was centered around supporting our business experts. Daniel showed some new enhancements for this, including a specific SharePoint Online site template (including content) that can be deployed at this moment.
At the end, we concluded with several best practices. All best practices were described (and some demo-ed) in detail.

It was great to be part of such a large conference. And I loved to talk about the Power Platform ones more. If you have any question on this subject, don’t hesitate to contact me. Below are some pictures from the event. The next European SharePoint Conference (2023) will be held in Amsterdam.
