Passing Parameters between two canvas apps

Hi there,

 

I am currently working on a solution which contains 2 canvas apps.

 

The first canvas app is operated by admin who will set up a 'topic' and will send a notification (through flow) to end users which contains a link to the second app. The end user will then follow the link to answer a series of questions through the 2nd app. In order for these responses to be visualized collectively on a dashboard, I need to set a topicID as well as a responseID.

 

The responseID is fine, I am setting that through the edit form on the 2nd app.

 

However for the topicID, I need to pass this parameter from the first app through to the second app and I don't even know if this is possible to implement? (i.e the topicID that is noted on the form of the second app should automatically be set to the variable which was passed through from the first app).

 

If anyone has done something similar or has any advice for me I would greatly appreciate your help 🙂

 

Emily.

Thank you @WarrenBelz this is very useful.

 

I have managed to get this working by manually entering the ID value I want in the URL e.g (&ID=1004")

 

However I am unable to get this working by trying to reference my global variable, or even to reference the value that is stored on a form's data card on the 1st app (&ID=DataCardValue1.text).

 

I'm not sure if my syntax is incorrect or if it is not possible to create a deep link without manually entering the value?

 

I appreciate your help 🙂

Hi @EmilyS ,

Can you please post both the URL end (after ?) and the OnStart code in Text.
