What Are The Basics Of Making An App In Microsoft Power Apps?
When you think of creating a business app, most of our clients wonder if they can do it. It surprises many when a CIO Advise team member demonstrates how easy it is to create it with Microsoft Power Apps.
The first thing we cover is knowing what type of apps you can make. There are three: Canvas, Portal, and Model-Driven.
- Canvas Apps – they begin with your user experience.
- Portal Apps – they are for external-facing websites.
- Model-Driven Apps – they start with your data model.
Then we explain the basics of planning and making an app. There are five: Plan, Design, Make, Test, and Deploy & Refine.
- Plan – Identify the who, what, when, how, and why.
- Design – Model the data and sketch out the app screens.
- Make – Create your app.
- Test – Have beta testers try the app.
- Deploy & Refine – Put the app in the user’s hands; request their feedback, make any changes.

Inside Dataverse, you can securely manage and store data used by your business apps created on the Power Apps platform.
Furthermore, Dataverse works with multiple types of data. It incorporates all the significant categories in data technologies that your organization wants and needs— file, image, search, relational, non-relational, and data lake.
