Be a part of the new PowerApps Community!

The PowerApps User Voice and TechNet community is migrating to a new location! This new site has been designed to meet the current community needs, while providing a more integrated environment and improved technical resources. Don’t worry – all the existing content will be migrated to the new community.

We are very excited to make the move, and we think you’ll be excited too! In fact, we’d like to extend a special invitation to an exclusive preview of our new community before it’s announced to the world. But wait, there’s more! The first 100 people who register will get special benefits and features. We even have t-shirts to send to those that register early. But don’t delay – t-shirt supplies are limited, and once they’re gone, they’re gone forever!

Visit the Welcome area in the new community to learn more about getting started in the community and the features and fun we have in store for you.

We look forward to seeing you in the new location!

  1. Make PowerApps exportable - extendable

    Indeed, innovative non-developers have great ideas and this tool empowers them to easily build UIs with my APIApps for a backend.

    But with ease of use comes limitations - inevitably many PowerApps will need functionality that the PowerApps designer cannot handle. At this point the app needs to be exported and extended using Visual studio or other dev tools.

    With Siena this was somewhat available by cracking the .appx.

    We need this or better for PowerApps.

      We hear you. We are beginning to look at the ways that a PowerApp can be extended (for example, custom controls) and exported (for example, to visual studio). We are still (and will be for a little while longer) focused on enabling non-developers to create PowerApps.

    • PowerApp does not support the Windows Phones. I suggest that you have this support asap..

      We are loyal Microsoft users but it is a surprise for us to find out that PowerApp does not support Windows phone. Please update so that we can use PowerApps in Windows phones..
      Thanks

          • Offline mode

            Provide some sort of cache to allow offline input and let it sync afterwards.

              Offline support is something we are looking at. It would be helpful if we had scenarios where this facility is needed, where a live connection is impractical. We can imagine all kinds of them, but we’d prefer to have real world examples. Thanks!

            • Logic Flow Improvment

              If Third party's Salesforce is supported, Access Web Apps SQL Azure Database shall be added to the Logic Flow Connections / Data sources so when I create a record in a table there, I should be able to trigger in PowerApps Logic Flow.

                • Multiple Instances

                  Right now you can open one PowerApp in view mode while another app is opened up in edit-mode. That's great for editing and testing your app.

                  Yet if you developed more than one app, only one app can be run at a given time. Since apps can be pinned, it would be great to be able to open more than one PowerApp at a time.

                  The ability to open multiple windows of PowerApps also lets you copy paste from one app to another more efficiently.

                  • Filter the available Actions, by the Connections you already have defined

                    OK, so at the moment it doesn't look like you can use existing Connections (at least not in the Template I tried), but assuming that's a bug...

                    When I choose "next action", filter the available actions, based on the Connections I already have defined, so that I don't have to wade through lots of actions that I can't use. Or perhaps display the ones I have Connections for, first.
