What is Power Platform?
Power Platform is a low-code platform developed by Microsoft that enables users to create custom business applications, automate workflows, analyze data, and create chatbots without extensive coding skills.
It consists of several tools, including Power Apps, Power BI, Power Automate, and Power Virtual Agents, that can be integrated with other Microsoft products and third-party applications to build scalable and customizable solutions for various business needs.
What are Canvas PowerApps?
Canvas Power Apps is a type of app building tool within the Microsoft Power Platform that enables users to create custom business applications with a drag-and-drop interface.
With Canvas Power Apps, users can design a fully customized user interface, create forms and screens, and add functionality such as data input and storage, business logic, and workflow automation.
The app’s layout and design are created on a blank canvas, hence the name “Canvas Power Apps.” This provides a flexible and intuitive way to create apps that meet specific business needs without requiring extensive coding experience.
What are Model Driven PowerApps?
Model-driven Power Apps is another type of app building tool within the Microsoft Power Platform that allows users to create custom business applications using pre-built components and data models.
With Model-driven Power Apps, users can create forms, views, and dashboards based on the data models and business rules defined in the Common Data Service (CDS).
Model-driven Power Apps is best suited for complex data-driven applications that require advanced customization, data management, and security features.
What are PowerApps Pages (Formerly PowerApps Portals)?
Power Apps Pages is a feature in the Microsoft Power Apps platform that allows users to create stand-alone, responsive web pages that can be embedded into websites or shared as URLs.
Power Apps Pages provide a no-code or low-code way to create public-facing web pages that can display data from various sources, such as SharePoint, Microsoft Dataverse, or external APIs.
Pages can be designed using a drag-and-drop interface and can include custom branding, forms, charts, and other interactive elements.
Power Apps Pages can be used to create landing pages, customer portals, data entry forms, and other web-based solutions that require a modern and responsive interface.
