PowerApps - External Users

I was recently watching a video where it was said that PA was not a good tool for the developement of Apps for external use.  I have a tool that we are developing internally for our remote field engineers and would like to implement this also for our team of what I refer to as 3rd Party technicians.  These users are NOT employees of the company and are not part of our Domain. 

Is this still possible or do I need to be looking at a .Net type solution instead?

Re: PowerApps - External Users

Hi @bmarcowka 

As you've probably gathered, PowerApps does not currently support external users.

However, this is a feature that Microsoft plan to add soon, as indicated in this post in the ideas forum.

In the meantime, a possible workaround is to create/share login details with your external customers, as shown in this post.

Re: PowerApps - External Users

Thank you.  I will most certainly look into the alternate option.  However, what is Microsoft's timeline for this feature as it seems to be open since this same time two (2) years ago?

Hi @bmarcowka 

Unfortunately, I don't know what the timeline for this is. This feature isn't currently listed on the upcoming roadmap.

https://powerapps.microsoft.com/en-us/roadmap/

Perhaps someone from Microsoft might be able to comment on this.
