Power Platform Weekly - Issue #71
Welcome to Power Platform Weekly!
The announcements from last week include new Dataverse Auditing features and general availability of code components for portals as well as of portals support for Query data using portals Web API.
We could also read about what is available as early access features and got a reminder that now we can opt-in to 2022 Release Wave 1. Goodbye classic Advanced Find, modern Advanced Find is here.
The Custom Connector family keeps on growing, 20 new Independent Publisher Connectors in November and December.
In case you missed it, this is a reminder that you can join Zero to Hero lessons, have a look at the schedule to see what is next and in case you see a lesson you are sad that you missed, here is happy news! Content is also available on YouTube.
Have a great week and thanks for reading!
