Open PowerApp Application through the use of Button

Good Day,

So I just search that you cannot have a different screen resolution in an a single PowerApp application. So is there someway to do this. For example I'm having a Leave Application for this scenario.

Let's say I created an Application in Desktop view, I have a button there named Redirect to Mobile view. And when I click that button it should run my Leave Application that it is in a mobile view. Vice versa.

I do have a Desktop version and Mobile version of my Leave Application.


Or is there something you can recommend how will I do this. Thank you very much!

Hi @Jrldscrpz,

 

So far, you could achieve this by using Launch function to launch the other app from current one. For your reference about Launch function:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powerapps/maker/canvas-apps/functions/function-param

 

Just add a button in the app, and set its OnSelect property to:

Launch("https://web.powerapps.com/apps/appID")

Launch( Address [, ParameterName1, ParameterValue1, ... ] )

  • Address - Required. The address of a webpage or the ID of an app to launch.

I'd like to be able to launch a different powerapp from a powerapp WITH BOTH APPS RUNNING IN THE MOBILE PowerApps app.

 

Using the methods described in this topic, the initial PowerApp running on a mobile device will cause a Web browser to be opened and the PowerApps Web site to launch. Thus the second app is running in the PApps Web player and not the original mobile PApp app. I understand that this is the expected behaviour when using the Launch function and an http:// address.  But, it doesn't meet my needs.

 

But, this thread that shows how to get PowerApp to launch a fellow PowerApp and remain inside the PowerApps mobile app might be useful to others as it was for me:
