Portal App

Hi

 

 

We have multiple apps for internal use. We'd like to be able to launch them from a 'portal app'. So that we have one app on the smartphone navigation with our corporate logo .

 

Is this possible?

 

 

Kind regards

In order to launch the app directly, instead of on the web, you need to pass the App ID to the Launch function. The App ID is the GUID at the end of the link, after the apps/, prefixed with "/providers/Microsoft.PowerApps/apps/".

So, if your you have the link:

https://tip1.web.powerapps.com/apps/1c42e668-775c-2960-994c-82b82278a26c

You should have the following in your OnSelect: 

Launch("/providers/Microsoft.PowerApps/apps/1c42e668-775c-2960-994c-82b82278a26c")

To summarize the post Chris linked to in his answer:

  • There is a function called Launch that you can use to launch one app from inside another.
  • The parameter for this function is the address or ID for the app you want to open.
  • You can get this information in the details page for your app in https://web.powerapps.com/apps2016-12-08 11_40_46-Book1 - Excel.png

Hope this helps 🙂

Thanks for the feedback Chris and Abdou.

I'll look into it and come back later.

 

Much appreciated!

Hi

 

 

It works, thanks.

But it doesn't give a smooth experience.

 

It launches the website inside the app, which adds another header.

Is there a way to launch the app instead of the online version?

 

If not, I accept your last answer as solution.

 

 

Kind regards

When you say it launches the Web site inside the app, which app are you talking about, an app you created with PowerApps or a different app?

You could use the following querystring parameter to suppress the header: hidenavbar=true
