How to use the Common Data Service within Office 365
Laura talks about the Common Data Service from Office 365. She initially considers what it is, how it works and why you may want to use it and how it relates to Power Apps and Flow.
She explains the benefits of setting up different environments to use alongside the Common Data Service before demonstrating how to create a new one from the Office 365 Admin Centre. She also looks at the different environment and user roles that are available and how to set up the roles within the environments.
Also covered in this demonstration are:
- out of the box entities
- creating a new entity
- defining field groups
She also demonstrates how to import an ‘old’ database to the Common Data Service by mapping the old and new fields.
