Only show PowerApp in PowerBI Dashboard and Hide App from Mobile, Online, and Desktop PowerApps

I created a PowerApp from a PowerBI dashboard, and from my understanding I have to share the app with the people I want to be able to view the app from the dashboard. However, if I do this then they will see the app listed on their powerApps mobile app as well as PowerApps online.


The issue with this is I only want them to see the app in the PowerBI dashboard because there is specific data they need to see associated with the PowerApps. So is there a way to share the application with the people using the PowerBI dashboard and still hide it from them on all other powerApp views (desktop, online, and mobile)?

Hi @PAB,


Do you want the shared app to be hidden from the other users (who you share this app with) on all other PowerApps views (desktop, online and mobile device)?


Currently, if you share an app to other users within your Organization with Can Use or Can Edit permission, the other users would see this shared app within their PowerApps environment.


If you want the shared app to be hidden from the other users (who you share this app with) on all other PowerApps views (desktop, online and mobile device), I afraid that there is no way to achieve your needs in PowerApps currently.


If you would like this feature to be added in PowerApps, please submit an idea to PowerApps Ideas Forum:

Okay, so just to clarify there is no way to share an app with users within your organization only for a PowerBI Dashboard? And this is because it will share with them across all PowerApps views including Desktop, online, and mobile device?
