How to upgrade the app. An app that is duplicated and distributed to several groups.

Hi community,

I'm developing one small app.
I distribute the app to multiple groups.

The app's storage uses a SharePoint list.
I am making a list for each group.

I'm thinking of using an app version upgrade.
Is there a way to efficiently carry out this version upgrade?
I manually reflect the changed diffs in each app.

Any help would be appreciated! Thanks

@dexit Could you please elaborate on "I'm thinking of using an app version upgrade." Are you upgrading something in your App or Are you upgrading to a New version of PowerApps?

Thanks your response.
I have to upgrade my App.

Implementation of new features is complete. 

I want to know how to deploy it to each team's app.

@dexit do you mean that you want to push out the new changes to the users?

@dexit Are you still interested in receiving a solution for this?


I’m sorry for the late reply.

No. I dont mean to push out.
We distribute the app many groups.
Our process is...
(1) Change origin app
(2) Export Origin app.
[for each groups process]
  (3)  Import app.
  (4) change data source .
      ( Share point lists)
  (5) publish app

I want to skip process (4)...

@dexit If you would like to automate the process of changing to different SharePoint lists when Apps are exported and imported, you need to use Solutions and Environment Variables.

Please have a look at this video from Reza,


Please remember to give a 👍 and accept the solution as it will help others in the future.
