GPS Location Enable check

Hi All,

Currently powerapps only asked Location permission at the first time use the app, but after that it won't asked to enable GPS anymore. If I want to create the app always keep asking the the location enabled from the user device, is it possible?

The idea is, when user re-open the app always check the GPS location off/on.

Thanks,

Re: GPS Location Enable check

Hi @daroot,

If you want to the app always being asking the the location enabled from the user device, I afraid that there is no way to achieve your needs in PowerApps currently.

Currently, within PowerApps, the Location permission would be asked only when a user accesses the location information for the first time.

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

Re: GPS Location Enable check

I see the thread is several months old...

but, why not test
location.whatever>0.  

If you are greater than 0, gps is turned on.

if your are less than 0, well, no gps.

hope that helps
