How to add your personal PowerBI Dashboard as a system dashboard

Flows not triggering after environment copy

Having read this nice tip from Ankita Chavan posted here it did not resolve our problem. Our instance was not in administration mode and it still did not work. This forced me to create a ticket with Microsoft to solve this issue.

Here are the troubleshooting notes:
- you have flows with a CDS trigger
- none of them are working
- the flows are team flows - connection owned by a different user
- we have created a new CDS flow - it worked
- we have exported an old CDS flow and used the current user's connection and it worked
- you remembered you have copied another org over the current environment

Delete the trigger and recreate it
Internally it was checked with MS team and it seems since it's a CDS trigger copying another environment over the current one will not be supported for the trigger.
What will happen if you copy a different environment over, first all the triggers will be deleted and the other's environment's triggers will be copied on top of this.
So a copy with flows is not supported at the moment.
Then as a workaround if this happens what you can do is delete the triggers you have in that CDS and disable/enable the flows again to recreate the triggers.

Yet Another Address Autocomplete PCF Control–powered by Bing

In this blog post I will not go into detail in how to install all the pre-requisites that are required to build and run PCF controls. My goal was to build a new PCF control and get into coding of PCF controls as fast as possible.

Here are a few links to articles that will help you installing the pre-requisites (Microsoft PowerApps CLI)
Other good references to get into this topic:
I looked through the Guido Preite’s which will help you find appropriate use cases / examples for your own needs. It did not take very long to find a simple example to start with: Andrew Butenko's
A few moments later I had the idea to create yet another address autocomplete control b…

Regarding SPFieldMultiLineText (Add HTML/URL content to a field) programmatically

I recently tried so set some HTML content in a SharePoint list column of type SPFieldMultiLineText.

My first approach was this piece of code:

SPFieldMultiLineText field = item.Fields.GetFieldByInternalName("Associated Documents") as SPFieldMultiLineText; StringBuilder docList = new StringBuilder(); docList.Append(""); foreach (DataRow docRow in addDocs) { DataRow[] parent = dr.Table.DataSet.Tables[0].Select("DOK_ID=" + docRow["DOK_MGD_ID"].ToString()); if (parent != null && parent.Length > 0) { docList.AppendFormat("{1}", parent[0]["FilePath"].ToString(), parent[0]["Title"].ToString()); } } if (docList.Length > 0) { // remove trailing tag docList.Remove(docList.Length-5, 5); } docList.Append(" "); string newValue = docList.ToString(); item[field.Title] = newValue;
What this code does is to get all associated documents to the main document and to add these document uri links to the "Assoc…

Set Multi-OptionSet values with a custom workflow activity

As the relatively new multi-optionset field type arrived with v.9 of Dynamics 365 the need to set values via workflow is quite a common requirement. So I searched within the community to find some ideas on how to solve and create such a workflow activity and so I stumbled upon Demian Raschkovan’s Workflow Tools with can be found on his github repository:

It gave me some basic ideas to reach my requirements which are: Should be generic for any type of entity Ability to specify the attribute name of the required multi-optionset for that entity Provide a list of multi-optionset values (comma-separated) Keep existing values (True/Yes => add provided values / False/No => replace all values with the provided values Remove specific value(s) from an existing set of values
My code sample (without other dependencies):
using Microsoft.Xrm.Sdk; using Micr…
