Project Oakdale for Microsoft Teams

Project Oakdale was first announced at Microsoft Inspire 2020, and during Ignite 2020, the announcement was made that Project Oakdale has now entered public preview! 

What Is Project Oakdale?

Project Oakdale allows you to build low-code applications within Microsoft Teams leveraging Microsoft Power Apps and the Microsoft Common Data Service.

This gives business users the ability to:

  • Create and edit custom low-code apps and flows, then quickly publish them for anyone on their team to use
  • Easily deploy fully functional solutions to Teams with just one click
  • Customize app templates and responsive app layouts native to Teams
  • Manage all apps and flows via a secure, relational backend with Project Oakdale

Check out this Microsoft Blog for more Project Oakdale information and demo videos.

Why Does it Matter?

Organizations already have access to Project Oakdale through their Microsoft Teams licencing. It gives business users an opportunity to build robust low-code applications to leverage their business data and build automated workflows without needing to leave Teams.

What’s Next?

You can take a look to see how customers like CenturyLinkTelstra, PayPal, and Capitol Records have already started to modernize their business processes with powerful Teams and Power Platform integrations.  Check out Forrester’s recently published New Technology Total Economic Impact™ study of Microsoft Teams Platform to see how these technologies have already helped Microsoft customers.
