Calling One PowerApps from another PowerApps

Hi

 

I know tat this has been asked before (https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/General-Discussion/How-to-navigate-one-PowerApp-to-another-Power...) and the response got as far as being able to call another PowerApp from a PowerApp, but the called PowerApp came up in design mode.

 

Did this ever get fixed so you could call one PowerApp from a Second PowerApp and the called PowerApp is in "Run" mode.?

 

If it was fixed what is the Microsoft Approved way of doing this ?

 

Thanks

 

Nigel

Re: Calling One PowerApps from another PowerApps

This works, just tested.

If you open it on "Play" mode it will open the other app on "Play" mode.

 

Currently, however, if you open an app from edit mode, it will open the other app on edit mode as well.

I'm double checking what's the reasoning behind not being able to open the app on Play mode if you're on edit mode.

Maybe it's a bug, but you still can rely on the launch for the play time.

Hi @claudiosvcc

 

Thanks for the response.

 

Can I return to the calling PowerApps from the called PowerApps ?

 

Thanks

Re: Calling One PowerApps from another PowerApps

Hi @NigelP,

 

Could you please share a bit more about your scenario?

Further, do you want to return to the calling app from the called app?

 

Currently, if you want to return back to the calling app from the called app, I afraid that there is no way to achieve your needs within PowerApps.

 

If you would like this feature to be added in PowerApps, please submit an idea to PowerApps Ideas Forum:

https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/PowerApps-Ideas/idb-p/PowerAppsIdeas

 

As an alternative solution, you could consider take a try to achieve your needs using Launch function. The formula as below:

Launch("https://web.powerapps.com/apps/813182fb-57bf-66a1-5484-7404677d9e5c")

Note: The '813182fb-57bf-66a1-5484-7404677d9e5c' represents the App Id of your calling app. But the Launch function would open a new app rather than return to the previous calling app.

 

Best regards,

Kris
