IF you have been using make.powerapps.com as your new solution tool you may have see the tab for Relationships. As something you don’t tend to do on a day to day basis its only now that I have had a decent look at it.
I had just created a little entity that will be linked to account. So after enabling quick forms and creating a subgrid I decided to check out the relationship to ensure everything mapped.
In my solution I added in accounts and then I went to add a relationship. You get asked the type of relationship and in this case it was a One-To-Many
Step 1 – select the related entity.
Step 2 – Expand Advanced options and then select the behaviour and what happens when the account is deleted. Nothing new but a clean way of doing it.
Step 3 – click on Done
Your screen then closes and you are ‘done’
Step 4 – Save Entity
Cool? Well maybe not 🙁
At the point of writing this I can’t seem to see a way to map the fields across so at the point of writing I am having to switch into the classic format to do this.
Am I ready for relationships? well yes. Is D365 ready? Not quiet. We are half way there and hopefully it wont be long to wait until all the functionality is there. A good start and look forward to whats next.
If you see the new functionality for field mapping is there since I have written this and I have’t been back to update (or linked to a next instalment blog) then please let me know.
