Deeplink from 1PowerApp to another and parameter passing

Hello All,

I am working on 1 App and each screen of this APP has provision to redirect from Screen to another App.

I tried to achieve this by Deeplink (Launch).

Please let me know if deeplink is recommended by Microsoft ?

My further requirement is, I want to pass the parameters from one App to another.

E.g. If one person clicks on a button from 1 App then he/she should redirect to another App. In second App, there is a label where I want to capture screen name of App 1

Hi @tanvis2011 ,

Could you want to navigate from one app to another one using Deeplink?

Do you also want to pass value from one app to another one?

 

Based on the needs that you mentioned, I think the Launch function could achieve your needs. I have made a test on my side, please consider take a try with the following workaround:

Within your first app, add a Button, set the OnSelect property to following:

Launch("https://apps.powerapps.com/play/06bd7769-xxxx-xxxx-bb52-b6f2aad99759?tenantId=9e51064f-xxxx-41a2-xxxx-9785a9d6c706", "ScreenName", "Screen1")

Note: The 'https://apps.powerapps.com/play/06bd7769-fa87-4ce5-bb52-b6f2aad99759?tenantId=9e51064f-f6a5-41a2-89a...' represents the Web Url of your another canvas app. You could find the Web Url of your another canvas app as below:

Then within your another app, set the OnStart property of the App to following:

Set(ScreenNameValue, Param("ScreenName"))

set the Text property of the Label to following:

ScreenNameValue

 

Please consider take a try with above solution, check if the issue is solved.

Dear Sir,

Thank you for your guidance.

I could achieve the logic but I would like to know if I can do this dynamically instead of passing different screens names statically on each page .

with Launch , I want to use variable screen name will change accordingly.

Launch("",ScreenName,Screen1)

Launch("",ScreenName,Screen2)

---------------

Launch("",ScreenName,ScreenDynamicVariable)-------something like this

Hi @tanvis2011 ,

Based on the needs that you mentioned, I afraid that there is no way to achieve your needs in PowerApps currently. The second argument of Launch function is required to provide a specific Text string value, e,g, "Parameter1", rather than a variable.

If you put a variable as the second argument of Launch function, you would not be able to receive the passed parameter value in your another app.

 

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