In a previous post I went though how we can use Project Oakdale to create some pretty flexible apps in Microsoft Teams. The platform which allows for a subset of the CDS functionality to be used inside of Microsoft Teams has just gone GA! With the GA release, we’ve also got a new name.
In line with the renaming of CDS (Common Data Service) to Microsoft Dataverse, we see Project Oakdale (essentially CDS lite) be rebranded as Microsoft Dataverse for Teams. Personally I always though Project Oakdale was a bit of a stupid name… Long live Dataverse.
Cheesy names aside, Dataverse for Teams provides a great set of features that were previously locked behind a full Dataverse (Or CDS) SKU. While it’s not on the level of Dataverse, it’s a fantastic tool for small, team scale low-code solutions.
