PowerApps Development - Multiple People

Hi,

We are looking at creating a powerapp which could require multiple resources creating and editing the PowerApp at the same time. They will likely work on different screens at the same time, but may use the same data sources.

 

Is this possible? I know there are environments which we could potentially use, but then we'd have two different versions of the App that would need to get merged every day.

 

Any ideas on the best way to achieve this?

 

Thanks

Kevin

It currently isn't possible to have multiple people editing one App at the same time. I've posted in the idea forum to allow for copy and pasting between apps so you can go there to vote on that functionality. This would allow for people to work in their own copy  of the app and then move data to a main one as well as allow for some testing workflow.

 

You can find that here:

Another solution is to break the app up into separate apps which are opened using the Launch command.
