Model Driven APP capabilities

Hello Everyone,

My organisations is evolving into the Dynamics Environment and we are moving away from Canvas APPS and going towards the Model Driven (MD) APPS

I have a few questions to ask you please.

Q1: Can we recreate a canvas APP in the model driven environment?

Q2: In the Canvas APP we have a single form (Ie gallery) which is a questionaire where the user answers questions.
The Question Bank table holds the type of control that will be displayed dependent on the question.
For example : In my Question Bank table we have the Question and the control type that has to be displayed when the user answer the particular question. (eg control Radio button for question such as on Which state is your observation being made?)

We have different Question Banks that are called up and populated in a collection and then they are displayed

My question is do we have the capability of having one Dynamic Form in a Model Driven environment like I have in the canvas APP or do we have to create different forms each time a new question bank is imported?

Q3: Can you suggest any good videos to watch on model driven APPS so I can learn in a more efficient way

Thank you so much for reading my questions

Hi @mpezzutti,

For your requirement, I would recommend you to use the built-in embed canvas app feature inside a model driven app.

You can embed your canvas app on your model-driven form directly, something like this:


Besides, for better learning/understanding Model Driven App, you can refer to below videos: (this is a basic documentation about model driven app from Microsoft, which is very useful for beginners)

Best regards,
