Opening multiple windows in Powerapps

You know how when you connect to multiple monitors and you open PowerPoint, you have a "command module" where only you can see your notes and the slide that is up next but you are projecting to a different screen that others can see (like on a WebEx meeting)?  

 

I need that in PowerApps.   In a perfect world I would be able to display two or more PowerApp screens on external monitors while I am using the screen on my laptop.   Does anyone know if this is possible?

Hi @hughrmarks,

 

This could be done using Visible property and the different login user account. For example, you could set the Visible property of a Lable control to:

 

If(User().Email="your email", true, false)

 

Note that about "your email" part, it should be match the "Account" information that is displayed in the PowerApps players and studio. And it is case sensitive.

After this, these controls will be visible only when the current user is you. Other user account cannot see them.

Hi @v-monli-msft , I have a similar need (want) as @hughrmarks  to have multiple screens open at once.  I don't believe your answer addressed this question.  Currently, the only way to view a new Screen seems to be to Navigate to it, and leave the screen you are currently on.  I'm not looking to keep information hidden from other users (as your email / visible solution would accomplish), I want to display something on a separate screen while editing information on a different screen.  Specifically, for a chess tournament, one screen would be to input game results for the current round, while the other screen would be to show current standings of the players in the tournament.  Since powerapps runs in a web browser, I guess this would mean the app would need to use a different tab or browser window altogether so I could drag it over to an extended screen.  My work-around plan is to create a separate app that connects to the same data source and have it refresh on a timer.
