Payments in Power Pages or Show Me The Money

8/23/2023
What you hear in the opening is a sound clip titled "money count bills". Not sure about that, sounds more like soliders marching on gravel. Why did I pick that sound? Because it was available in the sound effect library I have already paid for. If I didn't have to pay for things, I would have definitely included Pink Floyd. Classic. Or Jerry McGuire saying "Show me the money". In this episode of Refresh the Cache Nick and I talk about how to take the nice customer's money using nothing but Power Pages.

The Hunt for Script October or Where TF Did You Put That Script

6/27/2023
Everyone misplaces things from time to time. Keys, airpods, sunglasses, wallet; anger, confidence, sense of entitlement... JavaScript in Power Pages is no exception. I know there is script, I can see that annoying debugger keyword, I just have no idea where the fuck did it come from. In this episode of Refresh the Cache Nick and I discuss all the possible locations where script can be hidden in Power Pages while contemplating using Dropbox as a source control alternative. And remember - we never truly lose any material possessions. We only temporarily misplace them. Credits Cover Image by 2211438 from Pixabay.

Life As a Template

4/17/2023
Raising kids is not an easy task. Nor it is cheap. If you need to talk to your bank about refinancing your mortgage to renovate the house according to the building permit you are yet to apply for and, in case your house is old and potentially has some led paint or asbestos, you would also be trying to keep the kids out of that very house as much as possible by enrolling them in the after-school classes THEN you are in pure luck. All your challenges can be solved by installing a trifecta of Power Pages scenario-based templates. In this episode of Refresh the Cache, Nick & I dive into the Power Pages templates; the good, the bad, and the ugly sides, what they are good for and where they shouldn’t be touched. We also answer some important questions such as are there any assets with the prefix "new_", is numbering your pages bad, and who gets a participation medal? To find out, as they say, listen ’till the end! Credits Cover image by Christiana Mergan from Pixabay. Get in touch voice@crm.audio

Release Tsunami 2023

2/21/2023
In the good old days (insert an old man yelling at the skies image) we didn't have release waves. Instead, every 2-3 years we had a tsunami. Since those days Microsoft has transformed releases into a pacifying surf ranch with persistent but not exactly heart stopping waves. Starting Wave 1, 2023 Power Pages now have a well-deserved their own break in the release plan. Of course, Nick and I couldn't resist dusting off our surf boards. But if you're not excited by Export to CSV feature, we have nothing to talk about.

The Dark Side of the Moon

11/15/2022
Long, long time ago, in the universe far away, Nick Doelman and Colin Vermander had a dream of making a podcast about , I mean , I mean , I mean Power Pages that would rival the entire Microsoft's media department. As often is the case, Microsoft decided to put an end to it by hiring both. In this episode of Refresh the Cache we talk to Nick Doelman about his journey from a humble IT guy to MVP to a portal go-to trainer, and now senior content developer on Microsoft docs team. Why the move, how did it change the work/life balance, what did Nick do for Canada (unlike his football team) - those are just some of the things we talk about. We talk pretty much about everything except curling. Which is a shame if you ask me. Get in touch voice@crm.audio Artwork by @dreamstudioai

Goodbye Portals, Hello Pages

10/11/2022
One of the Nicks is back but Doelman variety decided to take a pill and has gone to greener pastures of the mothership. To fill in the void of his large shoes, George "The Enabler" Doubinski has joined the crew and broken all-Canadian camaraderie. Both Nick & George are rusty after a long break, so the only hot topic of the day is "Who moved my cheese and is it still cheese?" aka "Power Pages" and "I can do Power Apps portals - do I still have a job?". Also turns out, logins are like exercise - everyone says they want to and will do it daily but in reality... Nick Hayduk @Engineered_Code George Doubinski @georgedude

Moving on from being a Dynamics CRM (365) Developer

11/15/2021
Details In this CRM Audio podcast episode Elaiza Benitez talks to Luke Hopton based in Jersey, United Kingdom, and Matt Ngan based in Toronto, Canada. Elaiza, Luke and Matt previously worked for the same Microsoft Partner in New Zealand where Luke and Matt were CRM Developers. Since then, both of them have moved away from being Dynamics CRM developers and Elaiza talks to them about their decision and what they're doing now in their current roles. Elaiza also quizzes them to see how much they remember about Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4 as a developer. Note: Elaiza refers to Dynamics 365 as Dynamics CRM in this podcast episode to avoid confusing Luke and Matt. When Luke and Matt were developers, it was called Dynamics CRM at the time. What we talked about Background to how Luke, Matt and I know each other. Matt and Luke introduce themselves. Matt worked for a product company in London that specialized in Wealth Management where Dynamics CRM was the platform and he now lives and works in Toronto for an HR software company that has nothing to do with Dynamics CRM. Luke moved to a Senior .NET developer role before leaving New Zealand and then moved to London in 2015 where he joined two other product companies. Eventually he moved home to Jersey and is now a Solution Architect where he works with RegTech (Regulatory Technology) solutions – due diligence and KYC (Know your Customer) for Wealth Management companies. The decisions Luke and Matt made to move away from being a Dynamics CRM Developer. That last Dynamics CRM version Luke and Matt worked with was Dynamics CRM 2013, possibly Dynamics CRM 2015 for Matt. Matt talks about the frameworks and tech he is using now. Both Luke and Matt talk about applying what they've learnt in their time as Dynamics CRM Developers in their roles now. What they use for source control now. Matt talks about the differences in Application Lifecycle Management for product development compared to consultancy projects. What Luke and Matt use for source control these days. Who would be in their search results when Googling for issues experienced in Dynamics CRM and tools used. Who showed Matt the ropes in being a Dynamics CRM developer - Rex Wessels, Sophie Khun-Hammond, Maryse Botros, David Brown mentioned. Elaiza quizzes Luke and Matt on their knowledge of being a Dynamics CRM Developer What Luke and Matt miss about New Zealand.

Microsoft Dataverse

11/26/2020
In today's podcast, Joel Lindstrom and George Doubinski talk about Dataverse, the new name of Common Data Service. Microsoft has also renamed some of the CDS components. Entities are now tables, Option Sets are now choices, and fields are not columns. These new names may be confusing for long time platform users, but they move the platform to be more consistent with other platforms and will help makers moving from SharePoint to Dataverse, as the naming is now consistent.
