The company used its virtual conference to unveil new security offerings and features, enhancements to the Azure cloud platform and new features in Teams.

Power Platform Adds Functionality

More capabilities from Microsoft’s low-code development product Power Platform have been integrated with Teams. The Power BI app in Teams is available for all users with new scorecard visuals available for users that have opted into the Power BI Goals preview in Teams, according to Microsoft.

Teams users can browse Teams-specific automations in the Teams App Store and use Power Automate templates without advanced configuration, according to the company. Bot makers can also now share Power Virtual Agents in Teams in appropriate security groups. Soon, bot makers will have the ability to add their Virtual Agent to a channel, according to Microsoft.

Previews are available for a new process mining feature; for Virtual Agents that can proactively message users; for Power Apps makers to package apps as native apps for Android and iOS; collaboration with comments while building apps, flows and chatbots; and a pay-as-you-go purchasing plan for Power Apps, according to Microsoft.
