Automated way of sharing PowerApp with a new person in the company

Hello, 

 

We have build several apps and every time we have a new starter we go and manually add the person to the list. Please would there be a way how this can be automated? 

 

Kind Regards,

Not fully automated, but a bit: You could share the apps with security groups and create a Sharepoint list (or a PowerApp) as a flow trigger. The user account itself has to be created manually, but the creator could verify that in a list or App to trigger a flow that adds the user to relevant security groups and sends an automated email with links to the flows as well.

It would probably be a good idea to post this in the Ideas forum, so that is can be voted on and put in motion.

Using security groups helped me out. I used to add 125+ people manually to every new application i built. Now i have added those 125+ people to a single security group and just add that one group to any new application. Saved me soooo much time. 

We do also have a nice little automation that adds and remove people from this security group as they come and go from the company.

Hello, 

 

The security group was a good shout. Thanks a lot for your help!
