One of the subjects I seem to be dealing a lot with recently is invitation codes – so much so that this was the featured topic for this month’s Portals Community Call. During that call I promised to share a small bit of CSS that would hide the “I have an existing account” checkbox on the Redeem Invitation page, so I’ll do that in this post, as well as give a bit of background as to what the checkbox is used for, and why it most cases you probably don’t need it.

While Microsoft continues to invest heavily in the Portals Studio, which provides a new What You See Is What You Get (WYSIWYG) editing experience for Power Apps Portals, there are still many good reasons to use the Legacy Front-side Editor. In this post I’ll describe how you can add additional styling options to the rich text editors to allow content authors to create consistent pages.

It’s been too long since I’ve posted! With all of the virtual conferences taking place in 2020, I couldn’t find the time to get any blog posts done. But I plan to change that in 2021. First off, I want to share a solution for when you want to use the Condition type of Web Form Steps, but your condition is more complicated than just checking if a regular field equals a specific value.

The power of Entity Forms in Power Apps Portals is that they mirror much of the functionality available in model-driven apps (and Dynamics 365). While the parity isn’t 100%, one advanced feature that Entity Forms does support is Related Records Filtering on lookups, where the available options in the lookup are filtered by some other data that has already been selected. However, in certain cases, this functionality doesn’t offer exact parity out-of-the-box – one of those cases is when you are creating a new record via a subgrid, and you’re expecting that the parent record is used in the filtering of the lookup.

I’ve been asked a few times about how you can add a rich text editor to Entity Forms or Web Forms on Power Apps Portals, and while I haven’t had the need to do this for a real implementation, I was curious to try it out. In the process, I found out about a setting I didn’t know existed that’s been around for at least a few years.

The topic of my first Portals Community Call back in January was the how to build a portal that allows a customer to view and print invoices. While solutions for this has been described by others (including Megan V. Walker’s excellent post), I also presented a different approach that I thought was worth covering in a blog post so that I could get a bit more into the technical details.

For the most part, Entity Lists try to mirror the functionality of the selected model-driven form in CDS. This means that certain settings on the model-driven form can have a significant impact on how things work in Power Apps Portals, event if it is not obvious at first. In this post, I’ll cover one of those not-so-obvious (at least to me) settings – Show Related Records.
