The PowerApps app you created works, but would be improved by adding a landing page or splash screen. Instructor Gini von Courter demonstrates adding a screen and a navigation icon, then adding an action to the icon. Finally, the screen list is rearranged to make the splash screen the default screen.
- [Instructor] I'm going to preview my app…which we can do at any time.…And this brings me in on the screen that I had selected.…So I'm going to choose browse screen one.…Here we are on the browse screen,…we only have one record but when I click,…it takes me to the information about that record.…I can click edit this item,…add more information, let's…assign this issue to Rob Molina…and check it to submit this item.…
We like what's happening here.…Let's close this.…And when I return to my browse screen,…at first this is what I see…and that's because when these are in order,…Rob's way at the end but I'm going to sort that list…in alphabetical order and he's back.…I'm going to try going to an empty record and editing it.…Again, holding the ALT key.…
Let's say the install type here…is wind.…I'm just going to throw this into formal preview…'cause I want to do more than this.…Date of report is September 5th,…okay.…And time, 7 a.m.,…install type,…wind, and we could turn this into a dropdown,…we had a dropdown list in Excel…
