Power Platform

Using Solutions in Common Data Service

2 Modules 3 Chapters 4 Lessons Intermediate

About this course

Solutions in the Power Platform and Dynamics 365 drive consistency and efficiency in my configurations and have literally put hours back in my week. Every time I reuse one it's like paying myself a dividend on a little bit of extra up-front effort and planning. It's not hard, but it's a skill that needs to be learned.


I want others to find the benefits of Solutions, too, but I haven't found a good resource to point people towards as a way to go from "I think I've heard of solutions, what are those again?" to "I get it--why haven't I done this since the beginning?"


In this course, you will learn the core building blocks that will help you:


  • Increase your own productivity when configuring 
  • Improve your ability to collaborate when building
  • Share, reuse, and improve your work with more standardized configurations


It's a free course, so go ahead and click on that first lesson and get started!
