Say goodbye to SharePoint Designer: Use Azure Logic Apps to build Workflows by David Schneider

Say goodbye to SharePoint Designer: Use Azure Logic Apps to build Workflows by David Schneider

Azure Logic Apps help you to implement your business processes. Together with PowerApps, Azure Functions, Azure API Apps and Connectors for 3rd party systems, they make a powerful toolset for the implementation of Workflows. Will we use Logic Apps to implement our SharePoint workflows in the future? Should we no longer use SharePoint Designer, Workflow Manager and other 3rd party tools? In this session, you will learn how to build a workflow with modern tools, SharePoint integration and interaction with the end user.

David works as the CTO for isolutions - a Swiss-based consulting company. He has more than 14 years of experience with SharePoint and was nominated twice as an MVP for Office Server and Services.
