Link directly to PowerApp

I have created 2 PowerApps (one specifically for mobile and one for desktop).   I would like to link directly to them on my SharePoint page.

 

I have used the weblink for each and created a link on the page.   However when I click the link to go to the PowerApp I get a screen that says I have to authenticate again and if I click on that I get a never ending series of pop-ups saying I need to login again and login screens.

 

What is the key to linking directly to the app on a SharePoint page?   These apps are specific to this site.

Re: Link directly to PowerApp

I think I need to clear something up here.  I am new to the PowerApps platform but not to SharePoint.  I have been a SharePoint developer/designer and InfoPath SME for over 10 years.   

 

The problem I was experiencing had to do with a glitch I experienced after I used the App's weblink in the Hyperlink on the page.   It had nothing to do with access vs. non-access.   I am the site owner and have full access to the site, the lists and the app.   

 

I just wanted to make sure that anyone else clicking on the link wasn't going to experience the same issue.    I have not experienced it again after that one time.

Re: Link directly to PowerApp

Hi @JR-BejeweledOne ,

Firstly, it's nor supported to "linking directly to the app on a SharePoint page".

Secondly , I think you misunderstand PowerApps app and shrepoint custom form.

1)PowerApps app

It is a standalone app created in PowerApps. You could only connect the app with sharepoint when designing the app.94.PNG

2)shrepoint custom form

It is just a sharepoint form. You could customize the form based on your demands.942.PNG

 

 

Based on your description, I think you want to connect your app with sharepoint.

If so, please login in powerapps protal and edit your app. When you edit the app, you could create connection.

Re: Link directly to PowerApp

I think you misunderstood the question.   I understand what PowerApps is and how to use it and how it relates to SharePoint.  

 

I have copied the weblink from the Share page in my PowerApp and used it in a link on my SharePoint page.    I want the users to be able to open the PowerApp directly from this link rather than having to go to the PowerApps page and find the app they need and open it from there.  

 

When I click the link on the page it triggers a never ending loop of dialog boxes telling me I need to authenticate, then the login dialog box then an error saying there was a problem and back to a new box telling me I need to authenticate.

Re: Link directly to PowerApp

Hi,

One quick question if you are already on same domain (powerApps and SharePoint) then you can try to insert a iFrame in sharepoint and call your PowerApps inside that. I myself did't try this however should work.

 

Hope this helps,

Re: Link directly to PowerApp

There is a way to embade your powerapp inside SharePoint.

Have a look at this link:

Hope this helps,

Re: Link directly to PowerApp

Thanks.   I have used that before, but in this case we are asking for protected information from the employees.  We don't want to embed this in a SharePoint webpart where it could potentially have an issue and display the information to others.

 

I simply want to be able to open the specific PowerApp directly from the weblink.  Nothing else.

Then it can be a new sharepoint page with embaded powerapps. Link to new page will only appear to certain users using audience feature.

 

Hope this helps,

Re: Link directly to PowerApp

Unfortunately because of what the app is, that is not a solution.   The app is available to every employee in the company.   As I said, the only thing I want is for them to be able to use the provided weblink to access the app directly.

 

Thanks again

Re: Link directly to PowerApp

Hi @JR-BejeweledOne ,

Even if you want to open the app from sharepoint list directly , you also need to have access to this app.

I suggest you add the users in your tenant and give them the permission to visit the app.
