PowerApps on Mobile - Switching Environments

Hi PowerApps Community,

 

We are trying to determine if the PowerApps mobile application allows users to change environments.  Please advise.

 

Thank you!

@chsanche In my experience the mobile app shows all the apps that you have access to no matter which environment they are in.  So there is no need to switch environments.  In the screenshot below you can see apps from my default and my personal development environment.

Hi @MikeD13 

 

Unfortunately, right now the PowerApps mobile application only allows you to view the applications in your default environment. You could submit this as an improvement idea on the User Voice forum: https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Power-Apps-Ideas/idb-p/PowerAppsIdeas

 

Best Regards,

Hi @Pstork1 

 

You are completely right, sorry about the misinformation. I did confirm with a colleague and the idea to add the functionality to show only apps in a specific environment, and also changing the environment was already indicated to our product group.

You are correct that you can't filter down to a specific environment at this point and that would be a useful feature.

When I select All Apps I am only seeing the apps in our Default Environment and none of the apps I created in my other Environments.

I just checked again and its showing apps from all my environments.  Are you using the same login for the environments?  Or are the apps from other environments stored in Solutions?

I am using the same login for all my environments. Yes, my apps are in solutions as recommended by Microsoft.

Did you Publish Customizations in the Solution?  In my experience Apps created in Solutions don't show in the My Apps view either in the desktop or in the mobile app unless the Solution has been Published.  Also, from my testing it looks like Apps in Solutions take a while to show up in the Mobile view after Publishing. But I am showing Apps from multiple environments in the mobile App Apps view even if they are in a Published Solution.

My apps in my other environments are published but still not displaying in the Power Apps mobile.
