Power Platform Weekly - Issue #3
Power Platform & Dynamics 365 Specialist Tae-Rim Han explains how to build a flow that extracts and consumes the remote execution context in a no-code approach. If you have not found your way to Tae's blog before - now's the time. This blog is definitely worth a visit!

MVP Nick Doelman explains what a CDS Application User is and when you might need one.
