Checking out 'Check Access'

Imagine going to work desk (aka kitchen top for me) in the morning and finding a new gadget, stationary item or something useful. Dynamics 365 is a little like that, recently — with a stream of enhancements and new features (big and small) are arriving subtly as part of Dynamics 365 product updates, Power Platform updates, and Dataverse enhancements. One recent one is 'Check Access'.

It must have been part of Release Wave documentation but somehow I lost track of it until I saw this new button on every form. Clicking on it, brings up a form that shows all the permission logged-in user has related to the form/table. Furthermore you can also select any other user to check that user's permissions on the same form/table. Slick, easy and useful!

Here's a friendly documentation link from user guide 👉 Check your user access and permissions - Power Apps | Microsoft Docs
