Join Gini von Courter for an in-depth discussion in this video Take the app on the road, part of Business Apps for SharePoint Monthly.
- [Instructor] Our app looked good in a browser, but this is an app that was created for mobile use. PowerApps are actually called mobile-first apps because that's the environment that they're built for. This is my iPhone, but the free PowerApps app is also available for Windows Phone and for Android. I'm going to fire up PowerApps. The first time you do this, be prepared to provide your login credentials. But here are my PowerApps, including the Asset Inventory that we just built.
It says swipe from the left edge to close app. I'm going to say Don't Show This Again, or simply say Got This. And here is our application. I can search for different items and I can specify the columns that should be search columns in PowerApps so that it's not having to search everything. I can narrow that down. If I wish, I can edit an item. There's my Edit button, so if I notice that I was missing some digits here, I can add them in.
And remember, as I'm modifying here in my app, I'm also modifying back in SharePoint. If I want to create a new item, there we go. And are all of my new item information, when I use drop-downs, they're loaded, they don't load until the first time you use them. That, again, is a way that the app is getting to you really quickly. And if I want to cancel, I can hit the Cancel button. This gives me the ability to sort. When I want to close my app, simply swipe back from the left-hand side.
That's a nice-looking app. It took us very little time to create by leveraging PowerApps to build an application for our SharePoint Custom List.
