How do I return to a previous session?

I am new to PowerApps, so this might be a very dumb question. I have a scenario where users might be using an app, lose connection of get interupted for various reasons...when they return, they want to be able to decide if they can return to the previous session, or to start a new session. As depicted on the attached screenshot.

Is there a way to get this accomplished in PowerApps? How do I go about this?

 

Thanks.

Re: How do I return to a previous session?

Hi @Spawn10,

Do you want to restore previous session or start a new session manually within your app?

If you want to restore previous session or start a new session manually when your app lose Network connection, I afraid that there is no way to achieve your needs in PowerApps currently.

Currently, within PowerApps app, only when current session is timed out (more than 2 hours), it would prompt you that if you need to restore previous session or start a new session.

Note: Currently, within PowerApps, the maximum duration of a session is 2 hours. Please check here for more details.

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