Here’s a topline view of what I’ll be announcing at Microsoft Ignite.
Design seamlessly with new low-code capabilities
The Design Studio enables makers to easily create modern, data-centric business websites for desktop or mobile without writing a single line of code. With new updates designed to support low-code and no-code solutions, makers can now effortlessly build multi-step forms that include document uploads with the Pages and Data Workspaces. Other updates include the ability to add custom CSS in the Styling Workspace.
Choose from 16 new business solution templates
Within the Templates Hub, makers can pick from a range of responsive, customizable templates to jumpstart their website building journey—including 16 new business solution templates with patterns for processing building permits, managing after-school activity registrations, and managing client appointments. You can also extend Microsoft Dynamics 365 applications to your customers, partners, suppliers, and vendors with templates for customer self-service, community self-service, and partner relationship management.
Get up to speed with the new Tutorials section in Learn Hub
Makers can explore helpful training materials on Power Pages capabilities—from different perspectives and dimensions—directly in the Power Pages platform with Learn Hub. A newly added Tutorials section offers even more support to pro and citizen developers alike, including embedded How-To videos and documentation.
Extend your pages with advanced pro-developer tools
Gain enhanced security and governance
Building upon Power Pages’ secure and reliable platform, new security and governance updates include turnkey integration with Microsoft Azure Web Application Firewall, Content Delivery Network (CDN) support with Azure Front Door, and support for custom domains. A new go-live checklist simplifies site verification prior to going live, which provides total control over when the site becomes public.
Power Pages licensing available as prepaid or pay-as-you-go
Power Pages subscription licensing is now based on monthly authenticated and anonymous users per website, making it easier than ever before to choose the right licensing options for your business needs. And with both prepaid and pay-as-you-go subscription options, you’ll have the flexibility to consider website seasonality, budgeting, and forecasting. Learn more about Power Pages licensing.
Seamless transitions for current Power Apps portals customers
Now that Power Pages is generally available, Power Apps portals makers can also leverage Power Pages’ low-code capabilities with access to the Design Studio, Learn Hub, and Templates Hub.
Power Pages is already in action around the world
With key customer scenarios spanning from sales to government services, Power Pages websites are serving millions of users around the world today:
- Degrees of Change creates an intuitive application process for students. This nonprofit focuses on building effective programs to improve career outcomes for diverse students with limited resources and professional networks. The organization uses Microsoft Power Platform solutions in a variety of ways and most recently for their Seed Internships program. The intuitive application process enables students to apply to multiple internship opportunities at once.
- King County delivers critical services more efficiently. To better serve constituents, the King County Department of Information Technology developed over 200 solutions on Microsoft Power Platform, including Power Pages sites used to support health services, submit property and tax information, and manage event registration.
- City of Kobe provides financial assistance information to citizens during COVID-19. Shortly after the Japanese government launched a financial assistance program for citizens as part of its COVID-19 response, the City of Kobe became overwhelmed by high call volumes. The City of Kobe then developed and launched a site that reduced calls by 90 percent and greatly improved the program’s efficacy.
- Rockwell Automation brings visibility and new capabilities to sellers. Fortune 500 company Rockwell Automation provides industrial automation and digital transformation solutions to global customers. The company uses Power Pages to build portals with Dynamics 365 Sales to help automate manual selling processes.
