Connect with other makers in your organization via maker matching, now in public preview!

We are excited to announce the public preview release of maker matching in Power Apps!

Maker matching, available within the integrated virtual agent, connects new makers with other experienced makers, advisors, and internal community members who can help directly when you need it. The support bot also surfaces relevant internal resources and community channels to assist you with your app development process and promotes greater knowledge building across the internal maker community.

Maker matching is available in all Power Apps experiences: Maker portal, Studio and Modern app designer.

After opening the virtual agent, a maker will first be guided to Microsoft support guides and resources, after which maker matching will be enabled allowing them to access their organizations internal resources. 

Advisors can be nominated into the Advisor Program in one of two ways either admin nomination or the product itself will invite successful makers with a track record of great skills.

Once identified, Advisor nominees will be prompted to opt into the Advisor program in product. It is only after an Advisor has opted in that they are shown in the chat bot.  Advisors will be able to manage their availability as well as set their preferred communication method: Email or Teams.
