Microsoft Flow | Form Processing with AI Builder

You previously saw me use a AI Builder to build and train a form processing model to understand a utility bill. I also show how to build a real life PowerApps application to take advantage of the utility billing model and some elements and considerations while doing so.


In this new video, I show you how to leverage Microsoft Flow to create a simple orchestration around the same utility bill form processing model. In the process, we will look into building simple expressions with WDL, parsing JSON with the JSON connector, and working with variables.

More info on using AI Builder with Microsoft Flow here.

Until next post!

PowerApps | Persisted Button Pressed Numeric Up/Dn Control - Part 1

This is part 1 of 2 showing how to build a persisted button pressed numeric up/down control. This video addresses the fundamentals of the control, starting with understanding the button pressed event, how it can be used to start and stop a timer, how to make 2 buttons increase and decrease a text input control, and finally introducing a timer to persist the press.



Part 2 will show how to componentize all these controls into a unit that can be reused across other applications.
