Exit function stopped working

Hey, 

I've been using the Exit() function ( to close the app without logging out) for a while now in my app.

It was built to work offline after the user pre downloads the necessary data to the device, then the user can check the downloaded data and exit the app to open it later without the connection.

 

Since last Friday (4/mar) the button associated with the function simply stopped working. it goes blank and does nothing.  

Is this something with powerapps or totally on my end? I use the app on my tablet normally and not the edit screen.

Hi, 

 

Also experiencing this issue on mobile app.

I have tried both functions: exit(true) and exit(false) and both of them are not working on mobile device.

mobile app screen just stuck on my finish screen.

I have checked on the desktop version and it seems to work on that platform.

 

So currently just the mobile version is not working.

 

But unfortunately for me, all our users use the mobile app so will really need help on this.

 

Thanks!

 

 

Hey @LeonardoA 

The Exit function exits the currently running app. The user is returned to the list of apps. The user can then select another app to open.

Exit stops any further formula evaluation. Any function calls chained with a semicolon operator after the Exit aren't carried out.

Use the optional Signout argument to sign the current user out of Power Apps. Signout is useful when devices are shared to ensure user security.

While authoring the app, calling Exit doesn't exit or sign out the user. However, it stops the evaluation of the rest of the formula.

Exit can only be used in behavior formulas.

 

Exit() --> Exits the current app and leaves the user signed in. The user is returned to the list of apps.

 

Exit( true ) --> Exits the current app and the user is signed out. The user will need to sign back in with their credentials before running an app.

 

Thank You!

Hi,

I am also experiencing the same issue on the iPhone. This issue occurred with the most recent iPhone PowerApps update 3.22023.18. I have tested on multiple phones and the app functions properly on the previous PowerApps version, but once PowerApps is updated the Exit() function no longer works.

Is everyone trying this on iOS? I am having the same issue stated. Could be something changed in iOS? This is a massive issue for me.

 

update- running authoring version 3.22022.31

iPad OS version 3.22024.16 Exit() still not functional

iOS ver 3.22023.18 also not working

 

I am unable to change my authoring version on my license - elsewhere it has been mentioned to change build version back to 3.22013.7

There must be some recent change that occurred to the PowerApps environment on iPhone because I experienced this issue only this week.  I have an iPhone Canvas app that has been working fine until this week the Exit function button does not respond.  It does not exit the application.

We just started seeing this problem too.  It's a BIG issue for us because we're using powerapps Kiosks that have an auto-logout function built in which is no longer working.
