PowerApps with SQL server on-premises – Using the Gateway

On-premises data gateway allows you to access on-premises data with PowerApps!

The gateway is a bridge from your app to the on-premises or virtual machine where your data is stored. On-premises means that your data is stored on a server physically located within your organization, not in the cloud. A virtual machine acts as a private cloud-based server. The gateway can be deployed centrally and you can connect to your on-premises data and manage it securely from PowerApps.

In this blog, I’ll demonstrate how we can create a simple App in PowerApps which can connect to on-premises SQL database.  The App is created to capture Leads information from the user’s phone and the submitted data is saved to SQL database which is on-premises.

Personalized Reports to Customers & Vendors with Dynamics 365 for Financials

I’ve previously written about how a report can have multiple layouts/templates in Dynamics 365 for Financials. You can find that blog here. With multiple templates per report, we can assign different templates to customers/vendors which enables us to provide a personalized experience!

Let’s consider a scenario where, for some of the customers we want the Sales Invoice to include some special instructions, customer’s logo or any other information. For such cases, we can use the Document Layouts option that is available in Customer card and Vendor card pages to personalize the reports.
