Launch with parameters not working on ipad



I have created two apps and one of them has a button that launches the other with a couple parameters passed.  It works fine on a browser, but doesn't seem to work on the ipad. 


On the ipad, it looks like it is launching the second app perpetually (says opening).  I have to swipe the app closed.


Any thoughts or help is greatly appreciated

Re: Launch with parameters not working on ipad

Hi @demanandy ,

Could you describe more clearly about the parameters?

Usually, the app will not have any difference between on computer or ipad.

I suggest you clean your powerapps's cache and try again.

Please check whether you update powerapps to the latest version.

What's more, please check powerapps requirments to see whether your device meet:

Re: Launch with parameters not working on ipad



Thanks for the post.


I have a button on one app that OnSelect = Launch(URL,"Navigate", string, "SpecialNum",string,"ItemNum",string,"Description",string)   

and I have checked all the strings for valid results


On the other app that is opening, OnStart =

Set(Description, Param("Description"));
Set(ItemNum, Param("ItemNum"));
Set(SpecialNum, Param("SpecialNum"));
Set(Qty, Param("Qty"));
Set(NavigateTo, Param("Navigate"));
  "Dryfit", NewForm(DryFitForm); Navigate(DryFitEdit),
  "Drycast", NewForm(DrycastInspectionForm); Navigate(DrycastEdit),
  "CARPAR", NewForm(CARPARForm); Navigate(CARPAREdit),
  "Junk",NewForm(JunkForm); Navigate(JunkEdit))


How do I clean the powerapps cache?

I restarted the app, and tested on other ipads.


iPad is on iPadOS 13.1.2 and it is a pretty new tablet.
