Link to Item - Opening in Power Apps instead of SharePoint

Hello, 

 

I am trying to figure out how to open a SharePoint link in Power Apps. Here's some context to my scenario: 

 

Background:

Type: Standalone Power App

Data source: SharePoint List

 

What I was able to figure out so far:

1) Insert > Icons > Share

2) Configure the OnSelect property of "ShareIcon1" to:

Set(varCopyLink,ThisItem.'Link to item')

3) Insert > Input > Text input

4) Configure the Default property of "TextInput1" to: 

varCopyLink

5) Now when I copy and paste the link generated in "TextInput1" on a web browser, it displays the item in SharePoint.

 

Problem:

Is there a way to have this link open the item in Power Apps?

 

Thank you in advance.

Hi @Anonymous ,

App OnStart

Set(
   varEmpID, 
   Value(Param("EmpID"))
);
If(
   varEmpID <> 0, 
   Set(
      varRecord, 
      LookUp(
         'Campaign Intake Form', 
         ID = varEmpID
      )
   )
)

StartScreen

If(
   Value(Param("EmpID")) > 0, 
   FormScreen,
   YourNormalStartScreen
)

Hey @WarrenBelz your solution works, no more warning message. Thank you again for ALL your help (not just with this). I stumbled across a blog post that you wrote when trying to understand what delegation was and how to troubleshoot delegation warnings (Power Apps Delegation – SharePoint – Practical Power Apps). Your blog post was really helpful and I've been planning/setting up my SharePoint data field types with your best practices in mind. It's my holy bible lol!

 

Thanks @Anonymous ,
