PowerApps running background

Hello,

 

I have an application that collect the location of the user and send him a notification if he is in a certain place. However, my app works only if it's open. Is it possible to run the application in the background?

 

Thanks in advance.

Re: PowerApps running background

Thanks for your reply @v-xida-msft,

 

Is there any other way to keep an application running? Or another approach that I can use?

Actually, when my app is open, it collect the location of the user and send him a push notification if he is in a predefined area. (I would like it to does the same even if it's not opened)

 

Thanks in advance.
