Microsoft Adds Two New Power Apps to Teams

Posted on February 10, 2021 by Paul Thurrott in Microsoft 365 with 2 Comments

Microsoft this week announced the immediate availability of two new Power Apps for Teams, Bulletins and Milestones.

“We are excited to launch two new solutions optimized for broad distribution scenarios and help your organization get immediate productivity gains – Bulletins and Milestones,” Microsoft’s Navjot Marwaha writes in the announcement post. “These solutions are designed to work out of the box with simple configuration options provided within the apps. And since these solutions are built on the Power Platform, they can easily be extended using the powerful low-code platform from right within Teams to meet the unique needs of businesses.”

These new features are:

Bulletins. This solution helps an organization’s communication team share company and departmental news and information from a central location. “News articles can be organized under categories and contain rich content, including images, videos, actionable buttons,” Microsoft notes. “Publishers can also view metrics for articles posted, such as view rates over time.”

Milestones. Milestones is a central location for tracking status and updates. “The unparalleled value of the Milestones app is its extensibility,” the software giant explains. “Every organization has a unique need from their project tracking software. Milestones app gives you the ease of low-code to customize this experience. You can update the fields’ labels, add new fields, or add business process flows such as notifications to work stream owners when there is a status change in the task.”

Both apps are available now in the Teams Store:

Bulletins

Milestones

    I wish I could try those, but I'm a consumer and I have no colleagues. If only Contoso could hire me.

    Total waste of time. These are just example apps. The bulletin feature is mostly useless.
