Use Case Description

A medium-sized consulting firm wants to improve employee development and retention by providing mentorship opportunities for its employees. They decide to implement the Peer-to-Peer Mentoring App, which is built using Power Apps.

The app allows employees to find and connect with mentors and mentees within the company, based on their areas of interest and experience. The app includes a matching algorithm that suggests potential mentors or mentees based on the employee's profile, and employees can also search for mentors or mentees manually.

Once a mentoring relationship is established, employees can communicate with one another through the app, schedule meetings, and set goals for the mentoring relationship. The app also includes a feature for employees to provide feedback on their mentoring relationships, and a tracking system for HR to monitor the progress.

 

The app also includes a dashboard for management, which provides real-time visibility into the mentoring relationships within the company. Managers can view the number of mentoring relationships, the areas of interest and experience, and the progress of the mentoring relationships.

A use case for the Peer-to-Peer Mentoring App would be for a large technology company that wants to improve employee development and retention. They decide to implement the Peer-to-Peer Mentoring App, which is built using Power Apps.

 

Additional Feature (Optional)
Employees can create a profile, listing their skills and areas of expertise, and can search for potential mentors or mentees based on those skills. They can also request or accept mentoring or coaching sessions within the app, and can schedule and organize these sessions through the app's calendar feature.

 

Benefits to the Organization

The Peer-to-Peer Mentoring App provides the company with an effective way to improve employee development and retention by providing mentorship opportunities. It also helps to foster a culture of learning and development and allows employees to connect with one another to share knowledge and experience.

Employees can also connect with experienced colleagues for guidance and support.

 

Attention:

  • App should be built using Dataverse as your data source
  • Pay attention to accessibility.
  • Be flexible with your design concept.

You are hired as a Power Platform Developer to build this Application.
