Historically, we’ve had to go into Advanced Find to download Fetch XML, which is extremely useful for report, schedule board, and other customizations. As Microsoft replicates more of the “classic” features into the new UI, we’re finding new ways to perform the same tasks. Keep reading to learn how to download Fetch XML in the new UI. Read More
If you’re a heavy Dynamics or Portal customizer, you may find yourself looking for a user’s Azure AD Object ID – especially if you’re setting up Portal users! A while back, the only way to find this was to go directly into Azure, but we now have a much easier solution. Read More

If you happen to own a Flow important to your organization, I highly recommend sharing the Flow with an additional user in the event that you leave the company or lose access to your account. While it will be possible to recover any Flows “lost” this way, it can save a few headaches and extra clicks by sharing the Flow with another user.
