Can I go back to my app after following an external link?

I am doing an app to sign a pdf Document with SignNow. To do that I follow an external link to the SignNow webpage but then, I don't know how to go back to the PowerApps app.


Is there any way to go back once you have followed an external link?

Doesn't it just open a new tab when it takes you to the external link?


If you are using Launch() to get there it should so PowerApps is still open on the other tab.

Not exactly because the issue is that I am running my application by using the PowerApps app in an iPAD, so any tab is opened for my app.

When the I follow the link the browser is opened and then I cannot go back to my app.


Thank you very much.

Well, it is still open in PowerApps if you are doing in on the Ipad. You just have to click your home button twice to get back to it. 


I don't know of any way to make it automatically open back up to focus though. 


Best of luck!
