Power Platform developer environments: how to create on behalf

On his blog, Rajeev Pentyala pointed out that if you're an admin you can create a developer environment for another users. He noted that you can use the "create on behalf" toggle, then provide the ID of the user for whom you're going to set up the development environment.  

In his blog post, Pentyala explained the significance of the create on behalf option, saying it was helpful when your tenant settings restrict who can create and manage the developer environments.

Pentyala also provided a link to an earlier post he wrote where you and learn about the Power Apps developer plan and developer environment.

In his series, den Blanken explained that he also wanted to talk about all the cool things you can do with the generative AI technology that's included in Power Virtual Agent for building a chatbot with a prompt as well as consuming it. He also stated that he wanted to discuss neat new features now possible with the new authoring experience.

He noted that he was going to begin his series by laying some groundwork and creating a topic to request a day off. In his blog post, den Blanken demonstrated how you can create your topic using a prompt to the Power Virtual Agent Copilot.
