New PowerApps Portal

PowerApps are a great way to build custom business apps. It allows users to connect to your data and work across the web and mobile without much expense. It is a great way to develop low-code apps for multiple platforms. Cherishing the huge success of New PowerApps Portal and Flow, the primary request of innumerable customers was:

How can people outside of the company make use of PowerApps?

Well, there soon be a way to use apps with PowerApps portals. Yes, you heard it correctly.

So far, using PowerApps requires a login in the organization accounts. In the real scenario, there are use cases where the provisions of the PowerApps application make sense for suppliers, customers, and partners. This leads to arise in the demand for sharing PowerApps with external users.

Charles Lamanna, the General Manager of PowerApps, decided to introduce a new way to distribute an app with the PowerApps portal.

He exclaimed in bold letters:

“Today we’re excited to announce PowerApps Portals, the ability to build low-code, responsive websites which allow external users to interact with the data stored in the Common Data Service.”

Since then, “PowerApps- Portals” is the buzzword in the community. Now all the PowerApps makers can create powerful low-code and responsive portals. It further allows external users of their organizations to interact with CDS data.

They are now eligible to create a powerful experience with external-facing websites. It allows users outside their organizations to sign in using multiple options and identities and browse the data.

Previously, Dynamics 365 Portal’s full capabilities were only offered as an add-on for Customer Engagement applications. But now it is available completely standalone inside of PowerApps. Just like Dynamics 365 Portals, PowerApps Portals also provides to its user’s liquid templates to begin your Portal Customizations.

Below are some of the key capabilities of the PowerApps portals:
