Get version number or release date of the app

Is there any way to get the current version number or release date of your app using a formula?  It would be really good to get metadata about the app using formulae, similar to the User object.

 

Thanks

Re: Get version number or release date of the app

Hello,

 

You can now do most of this using the PowerApps for App Makers connection.

 

I've written a blog outling how to get the version number into you app. You can find that here.

 

While researching the topic I saw a lot of the metadata you are after was included in the dataset retrived when you run the get versions function.

 

I hope that helps.

 

Cheers,

Re: Get version number or release date of the app

Hi xx,

 

Currently, we could get the version number or release date in web.powerapps.com, on an app tile, click the ellipsis (. . .), and then click Details.


It seems that there is no function can be used to get the version number or release date.


Please consider to create an idea at PowerApps Ideas Forum, I will collect and report it from my side.
