What are PowerApps?

PowerApps makes it easier and quicker than ever to create custom business apps to digitally transform your processes.

Traditional forms of software development might take months if not years to create a mobile application. PowerApps provides a “Low Code” platform with a drag and drop type interface, this can then enable delivery of simplistic solutions within days.

All the solutions demonstrated in our video can easily be adapted and used for your own business application requirements.

PowerApps Examples

Below are some of the PowerApps that are demonstrated in our YouTube video. These PowerApps could be used by any organization to improve efficiency. Watch the YouTube video for full details.

1. Leave Request

Our Leave Request PowerApp is so much more than just a holiday booking system. It will also track other types of leave including: Time off in lieu, Sickness, Authorised absence and more.

The system used SharePoint Online to store data to enable the PowerApp to keep track of an employee’s entitlement balances and statues of requests.

The application is bursting with additional and optional features like enforcing Christmas shutdowns, approvals via a button in an email, holiday calendar, preventing too many people booking leave on the same day and more.

2. Employee Directory

This PowerApp has been given multiple names to describe its function such as “People Directory” or “Phonebook” but essentially its purpose is to allow employees to find each other’s contact information.

It is built with a gallery of items that are pulled directly from the Azure AD user profiles. It will then display the employees profile picture (that can be updated in Delve) along with email address and phone numbers.

3. Expense Request

This mobile phone friendly business application will allow your employees to submit their expense requests with ease.

The PowerApp will collect multiple receipts of purchases against a single expense claim sheet.

Once submitted this application will automate notification requests to the employee’s manager and or finance team for approval. The employee can track the approval process and will receive notifications at each step of the process.

Other PowerApps Examples

The three above PowerApps are just some of the examples demonstrated. The YouTube video also includes demonstrations of the following:

Barcode Scanner – The ability to scan a bar code to automate a task such as checking out a piece of equipment or combined with geolocation tracking can prove an employee was at a certain location and a specific time.

Accident Logbook – If you have a dusty incident logbook in your workplace that requires manually writing out a paper form, why not replace this process with a digital form accessible on a tablet.

Time Sheets – Replace product license costs for third party software that is tracking employee timesheets with a Canvas PowerApp. Then export that data for project metric reports.
