Canvas Apps - How to consistently show in list of apps when offline

What are the requirements to ensure a Canvas App appears in the list of Apps when using the main PowerApp in iOS?

 

I've had some inconsistency where I've

  1. Opened an app once while online
  2. Have closed the app
  3. While offline, have opened the PowerApps app (later) and the specific app does not show in the list

Hi,

I checked this behavour on my iPhone as well.

1. If you keep the app open, and go offline, then only it will be available in main list for offline usage.

2. If you close the app and you are on list page, and go offline then you will see no apps avaialble.

 

Hope this helps,

Pranav

Hi @robcarrington ,

 

It seems that so far consistently showing in list of apps when offline in iOS is not avaiable, you could try to submit an idea in PowerApps Idea forum below so that it might be considered for future release if the idea is voted frequently:

Thanks for the responses, appreciate the investigation.

 

@v-monli-msft I would consider this a bug rather than an idea if it's been working for other apps but not this app (it's quite similar to the others).

 

As a workaround, I've advised to pin the app to their home screen of their iPads and open the app on their device, online, at least once.
