How to close an App automatically in powerApps

When sesstion timeout happens in PowerApps it is required to close the running App and restart it again.
Is there any way of closing the running App by using a button within the App itself. Or give the user a warning when session expires?

To close a running app with a button simply put the following function in the OnSelect of a button:

 

Exit()

This will close the app on desktop or mobile. Also it only works in published version of the app (you will not be able to use this button while in editor in preview mode)

Currently there isn't a way to close the app from within it but this is a great suggestion for the Ideas forum:

Post it there as a future suggested idea so we can vote it up!

 

I stand corrected, see @Anonymous post below 🙂
