License question
I have a question regarding end user using an app. Assuming I am a maker with e premium license. I create a Canvas app in my dev environment in a solution. The canvas app is using only standard connectors with Sharepoint. I can do this in a solution, because I have the premium license, and I need to use a solution to move this with a pipeline into a production environment. Now I am moving this app into a production environment (not the default environment) (not using an ALM pipeline as this would require a managed environment and this would require a premium license of all user - just realized - I think the ALM Accelerator could be used in this scenario) _ so assume the app is moved by hand to the production environment. Can I share only the canvas app with a user who only have the MS 365 Power Apps license from within the production environment? In my opinion yes - but I had a discussion with someone, questioning this. More or less - is it enough as a maker to have a premium license to use solutions and environments, but can still the end user be on a MS 365 license?

Hi Daran, thanks for taking your time to answer. >While ALM Accelerator could be used in your scenario, it wouldn't change the >licensing requirement. I think ALM Accelerator works with non managed environments. But have to double-check. I am just checking this, as in my trainings people try to stick with MS 365 licenses if possible.
Wow... this is a new way to work in Power Apps!
I tried out @Kurt Larson's monitor and look how he works... just look at it!! 👓🕶️

I am using a 43 LG monitor in 4k - gives me enough room as well :).
storing selected values of a choice column in table (Dataverse for Teams)
Hi, we did a simple data collection app in Teams to find out, that all the choices selected values are stored as numeric values not as strings, which makes it difficult to use it in Power BI. I solved that with a text column for each choices column and a hidden field on a form which retrieves the datacard value of the choices column. Any better ideas to do that? Maybe do not use choices at all in the database but use a dropdown on the form? Goal is to make this simple solution customizable by my customer in the most easy way.

Suggestions for SharePoint delegation issues?
Looking for feedback on a Power App that will connect to a SharePoint list that could grow above 10,000 records. I found out the hard way that a ClearCollect combined with DropColumns was a no-go for a big list in SharePoint. The hard way, naturally, once it was already in production. "Why was this working and now it's not??!!" (sigh). 🤦🏻‍♂️ I changed the code from this: ClearCollect( colMyLinks, Sort( Filter( DropColumns('My Quick Links', "{VersionNumber}", "Modified"), 'Created By'.Email=gblUserProfile.mail), SOrder ) ) To this: ClearCollect( colMyLinks, Sort( Filter('My Quick Links', 'Created By'.Email=gblUserProfile.mail), SOrder ) ); ClearCollect( colMyLinks, DropColumns(colMyLinks, "{VersionNumber}", "Modified" ) ) I know, I know - converting to dataverse would likely make for a better solution. But will I hit any issues with the new approach? It seems to be working. The collection getting pulled in is only about 10-20 rows from the SharePoint list, so the app itself doesn't need to work with very much data. I figured the collection approach would be efficient. But obviously it comes with issues of it's own.

I recommend to test the app with a delegation limit of 1 - that way you find such issues much earlier. If the second call is working, it will not stop suddenly :). Just keep in mind as Jerry noted, collections are under the size limit as well.
