New Modern Apps Designer
Microsoft revealed the Modern Apps Designer, which enables you to see a preview as you build. This will save time when it comes to making changes to Power Apps.
It is also now possible to build Power Apps through Microsoft Teams, which makes sharing across different teams more accessible. App users do not have to be members of the team where the Power App was built to access, edit, or make any changes within the application.
New Power Apps Templates
Microsoft also launched new Power Apps templates during the Business Application Summit. These templates include Bulletins, Employee Ideas, Milestones, Profile +, Inspection and Issue Reporting. These can be found and easily integrated via the Microsoft Teams store. Additionally, because they are built on top of the power platform, this means they can be changed and personalised to your business needs. It was also announced that there will be more templates to be revealed over the course of the year.
These announcements are the start of two release waves this year, with Microsoft planning to have a six-month wave of new capabilities, updates and applications across the Microsoft Power Platform and Microsoft Dynamics 365. Read more about the first wave of release plans.
