Hi @sorrowsweet,

 

The Exit() function only works when the App is running, if you clicked the corresponding button under Edit Mode, it won't work.

For testing, please save this App first, then under PowerApps Studio Desktop version, click:

(File->)Open->Find your App and then click it to load, when the App is in running mode, click the Button configured with the Exit() function would then close the running App, and navigate to the App list.

If Exit() has been configured with boolean true value, then it will logout the current user, and back to the sign-in screen.

From my experience, the Exit function only works in mobile apps, and when you run an app in a browser. Are you attempting to call the Exit function when you run your app in the designer?

hi @v-micsh-msft

 

I found that Exit(True) function is not logged out the current user

It was work that way until end of last year and I was using it , 

but now I found that it closed the running app and redirect to the https://home.dynamics.com/ page with user login 

 

I am having big issue with this now, any idea to log out the user from power app function 

 

Regards

Pasindu

 

I'm also having this as an issue - ending up in a Dynamics 365 page - how does one close a window completely?

I solved this problem by this comment.

I find (in 2022) that the Exit() function and Exit(true) do not work on Android PowerApps platform apps at all.  I press the Exit or Exit and sign out option, and the button just hangs there, as if the function never finishes.

 

Further, it's buggy in the browser version, because I can press Exit(true) to sign out, and it does not sign me out right away; the time it takes to invalidate the session token and sign me out seems to greatly vary within the browser app published.

 

I'm not willing to switch back to the Windows PowerApps platform app to host the app and run from there, because ironically when I tested that, last year, it was the least developed and functional platform for PowerApps of all compared with iOS and Android platforms.  It was just really buggy.

Hi, 

 

Experiencing the same issue on iOS. Desktop version seems to be working fine. 

 

There are other users experiencing the same problem on this thread Exit function stopped working - Power Platform Community (microsoft.com)

 

But we don't seem to be getting any attention.

Exit() is not working only if "Confirm Exit" is turned off.
Go to App. Turn it On.
Now when you press Exit, it will ask for Confirmation (Pop-Up)
So, its working in different way. Please Check attached Pics
