On the surface Microsoft PowerApps appears to be a platform designed to help people who want to create software applications without any coding experience, realise their ideas and bring them to life. While that is true, there is so much more to it. Not only can businesses and individuals use PowerApps to actualise app ideas, it can also be used to custom build necessary solutions to ensure your business operations run smoothly.
Need a custom CRM? Power Apps can help you enhance and adapt Dynamics 365 CRM to suit your business needs perfectly. Looking to create a seamless onboarding and offboarding system? With Power Apps you can. The possibilities are endless and with little to no coding skills, you can revamp the processes you are already engaged in by building your own more efficient solutions.
Canvas Apps – These are apps that are designed using drag and drop features making it very easy to use, similar to how you would create PowerPoint decks. To simplify the process even more, Microsoft gives you app templates that you can then customise to fit your requirements. Build apps that integrate business data from a wide variety of Microsoft and third-party sources. Share your app so that users can run it in a browser or on a mobile device and embed your app so they can run it in SharePoint, Power BI, or Teams.
Model-driven apps – With model driven apps, the design approach is more focused on adding elements like charts, dashboards, forms and more using the app designer tool. With this tool, you have the potential to build both simple and complex apps and solutions. These are perfectly suited for apps that are data dense and involve a complex process, making it simpler for users to move seamlessly between related records.
Portals – This is Microsoft’s tool for creating bespoke websites and web pages with no coding skills necessary. It features a revamped end-to-end experience for makers to quickly design a website and customise it with pages, layout, and content. Creators can reuse page designs through templates, add forms and views to display key data from Data verse, and publish to users. It allows you to build an external facing version of your website for guests to sign in, create and view data anonymously.
