Opening A PowerApp As A Kiosk

Okay,  I have searched for hours now and maybe I don't know what to ask for.  I have built a pretty neat conference room booking system.  We have an Ipad on the wall outside the door of the room.  I need to be able to launch the powerapps and have it go straight to my app.  I remember in the old days with Access we could put the name of the program in the exe launch line.  I can't find any such solution.  I know I can launch from a URL, but how will I have it open in full screen without the browser header?

You should also be able to do

 

ms-apps:///providers/Microsoft.PowerApps/apps/<enter guid of your app id>

 

(make sure you remove < and >)

yes you can!

 

Just add ?firstParam=hello&secondParam=world to the end.

 

(Change firstparam/secondparam/hello/world to whatever you need).

If you install PowerApps from the iOS store, it should launch the native application instead of the browser when putting the url in.

Thank you.  I'm trying now.  Can you also put a parameter in this line?

What parameter would I need to make it fullscreen?

If you are using the web and want to remove the header, add &hideNavBar=true to the url and that will remove it.

Thank you, that works perfectly. 

What about fitting it to the screen? I would like to not have to unlock the aspect ratio. 

It should fit to screen when you first open it, is it not doing that?

It only opens the powerapp app in full screen mode when Windows is changed to tablet mode and is opened through the app that is downloaded from the Windows 10 store. 

Opening it from the web does not automatically go to full screen/fit to screen mode. you have to manually click the settings icon and then click fit to screen. 

I just used the option of running Windows in tablet mode through the app work for me. I was also able to make it run after autosign in by putting a batch file in the startup folder. I am still unable to get it to automatically open in a webpage in fullscreen and also fit to screen. (I do not want to unlock the aspect ratio in the app settings to make this work)

Thank you again for your help! It really was super helpful! I will most likely have future questions and will definitely ask here on this site!
