I've got a functional app at the moment.
I'd like to build a similar version of the app with some slight changes, so I'm looking to make a copy of the app so that I can have two identical apps running side by side with slight differences and work on them independently as they will slowly go further in separate directions. I'll be setting App 2 up to have a different data source - just don't really want to have to start again and rebuild it from scratch if possible.
Just wondered if you might know how to make an independent duplicate like this? - It doesn't seem to be as simple as a copy/paste in the right click menu.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Will the two apps function completely independently of each other?
(Aside from sharing a data source), eg if i make a change to one app, it won't make a change the other?
Thank you! 🙂
It will affect the datasource. If you need a new datasource connected to the new App, then create a new datasource with the same table names and same Column names. (You can use excel in your onedrive or any other datasource you have)
After creating the new datasource, follow this video from
