🦸🏻♀️ Ever tried to use Power Virtual Agents to answer questions based on a document? If you want to use a document as a data source, you can just put it on SharePoint and point the bot to it. But the problem with that is that your users have to be authenticated. Remi Dyon shows how you can get around this limitation by using Azure OpenAI.
🦸🏻♀️ When creating Real-time Marketing Forms there are two options in terms of what happens when a form is submitted. You can either redirect the person to another page, OR you can opt to display a message. Although you can set what the message should be, what you can’t set is the little image that shows, but Megan V. Walker is here to show how you can do it anyway.
🦸🏻♀️ Amey Holden has previously showed how to create an easy to read free text summary for each form submission and event registration. This post shows you how to use the summaries you created, and turn them into timeline posts and easy to access data within the form and registration captures.

🚀 Troubleshooting technology problems is a skill that takes time to develop. Once you’ve worked with a particular platform long enough, you’re often able to identify exactly where to start for an issue that’s reported. However, there are still new problems that arise and you have to put on your troubleshooting hat to figure out where to begin. The skills you develop with experience will propel you forward to troubleshoot these new issues much quicker.
🧭 Steve and Sam talk about SEO in the context of CRM and leads.
