Creating an Employee Recognition App in Power Apps, Power Automate, Power BI, Teams, and SharePoint

In this video, we demonstrate how to create a Power Apps and Power Automate employee recognition solution that can post the recognition to a Teams channel, send a Teams chat, and/or send via email. We try to make it optional for submitters to include their information, finding it works for chats and email but not posts. We store the information in SharePoint and then use Power BI to visualize the values demonstrated and other data.
