If you missed the User Group Summit conference in Phoenix, AZ last week, there is another learning opportunity happening in November. Collaborate Canada is a one-day event for all Microsoft Dynamics users, happening in Vancouver, Calgary, Montreal, Toronto, and Ottawa.
A one-day event in five cities means less time away from the office, and potentially less miles traveled to attend the event. Session sizes are smaller so there is more time to have your questions answered by the presenters. Collaborate Canada is a great way to learn from other Microsoft Dynamics users, and expand your network.
Encore has three team members presenting at Collaborate Canada in three different locations! Various topics will be covered by the Encore team including a general session for all users discussing customization in Microsoft Teams, an overview of the new Talent Management solution, and Inventory Adjustment Options in Dynamics 365 for Finance & Operations.
Tracey Santos, Account Executive – Vancouver
- Topic: Office 365 – Customize Microsoft Teams (for All Audiences)
- Tracey will be discussing customization in Microsoft Teams with Microsoft PowerApps, Microsoft Flow, and the Common Data Service for Apps. She will discuss how Microsoft Teams leverages Microsoft Flow and Microsoft PowerApps, so any user can easily customize a tab or create a bot that responds to messages.
Katalin Kegel-Kundra, Senior Business Solution Analyst – Calgary
- Topic: Inventory Adjustment Options in Dynamics 365 for Finance & Operations (Dynamics 365 User Group/AX User Group)
