Deeplinking (1 App to other App) how to sort out transition time visibility for user experience point of view

Hello Techies,

I have done deeplinking from 1 PowerApp to other App.

My 1st app has blue theme and 2nd App has orange theme. When I redirect to other App and come back it is quite fast but still I can see a glance of Blue and Orange screen.

This is not good from User experience point of view.

Please can you guide me to overcome it (effortless transition from 1 App to other).

One option I see it as put loading icon. Please can you provide some helpful link/formula.

 

Thanks you in advance.

Unfortunately, there's no such thing as seamless transition between apps at this point.  You can suggest it in the Ideas forums as a feature request.

Yes, I have an idea: you should create a 'pre-loader' to hide the screen while loading.

 

As an example, you can create a label in both of your apps with these properties.  Make sure it is placed on top of all other controls in the left side menu.

Fill: LightGray
Height: App.Height
Width: App.Width


Put this variable in the Visible property.  Don't worry if there is an error.  We will address that shortly.

Visible: isLoading

 

Put this code in the OnSelect of the button just before the deep link is triggered in App1

Set(isLoading, true)

 

Use this code in the OnStart property of App2.

Set(isLoading, true)

 

Then, put this code in the OnVisible property of the deeplinked screen in App2

Set(isLoading, false)

 

Now the preloading screen will cover the app until the deep link is complete.

No. We are looking for some other kind of solution.

I think this is under development by Powerplatform team, if we can use the white background instead.

Second, I occurred the limitation that if we remove the names of PowerApps while launching deeplink then in desktop no name is visible but in ipad and mobile it shows the app name on launch (to and fro) so I have not achieved the seamless deeplink transition from 1 app to other.
