Power Pages: Employee self-service.

I've been diving into Power Platform lately, kind of flirting with it, and I absolutely adore Power Pages. In this post, I'll share how to deploy a Power Page, and customize it as a self-service portal for employees making it look pretty and functional.

Please know that you can use the Dynamics 365 templates if you have any of these instances:

  • Dynamics 365 Sales

  • Dynamics 365 Customer Service

  • Dynamics 365 Field Service

  • Dynamics 365 Marketing

  • Dynamics 365 Project Operations

  • Dynamics 365 Supply Chain Management

In this case, even when we already have a template, I'm going to use another template for self-service purposes. The reason why I'm doing this is that I want to build custom pages instead of using the default ones for ESS Dynamics 365 templates.


Customers' wishlist and proposition


Our customer is looking for a simple self-service platform for employees from across the globe to use. The solution must provide:

  • Employee profile: personal data and ability to edit or add new information.

  • Company values: mission and vision as well as company values.

  • Learning: link to LMS.

  • Job openings: a job board for internal openings.

Proposed functional solution

A web that provides basic functionality that will allow people to access basic company information bringing together a remote worldwide culture.

Proposed technical solution

We will deploy a Power Page template and customize it based on the customers' needs. We suggest the customer use this platform because it is scalable and they could potentially manage the backend by themselves in the future.



In this guide, we will follow the steps to accomplish our customers' scenario and deliver what they asked for.

Log into make.powerpages and select Create a site.

Select a template.

Add a name and a web address and select Done.

Once you've selected Done, the template will take a while this is a good time for brainstorming what you are going to include. This is what you should see while the template is loading:

Like the cooking shows, I already have my Power Page prepared. This is the template I choose:
