Dataverse Accelerator is a new Experimental feature released by Microsoft to use the low-code plug-ins in the Dataverse environment. Low-code plug-ins are reusable, server-side synchronous business logic workflows that executes in real time.

Step 5: On Convert button OnSelect, added the below Power Fx formula, which calls the Instant plugin and stores the value in the OutPut Global variable.

Set(OutPut, Environment.dev_ConvertTextToUpperCase({InputText:txtInputText.Value}));

Step 7: Click on Play button to test the App.
