New this week


  • List formatting magic - neomorphic design for polished UX – what? A minimalist design style - 3D look and feel for buttons and graphics applied to 7 newly created JSON neomorphic list formatting controls – Buttons, Options, Rate, Image, Doughnut, Bars, Calendar. The sample controls can be implemented on list columns and views. Create a neomorphic list and distribute it using PowerShell for consistent usage and management across organization. This work inspired by Kristine Kolodziejski.
  • Using Mockaroo Independent Publisher Connectors to automatically generate sample data – step through Mockaroo features (customized schemas, datasets, mock APIs and grouped schemas/datasets). Connector accesses Mockaroo APIs for two scenarios: 1) Repeatable Test Data - use Power Automate to load contacts (basic flow) and to load contacts and accounts (advanced flow). 2) Speed up UI/UX development – see 2 methods (classic and using experimental ParseJSON (function), for automatically importing simulated data into a Canvas app.

The host of this call was David Warner II (Microsoft) | @DavidWarnerII. Q&A takes place in chat throughout the call.
