Hi @Akbulut,

Do you want to take location's latitude and longitude using PowerApps without running an app?

 

Currently, within PowerApps, we could get location's latitude and longitude using the Location function within a running app. If you want to take location's latitude and longitude using PowerApps without running an app (take location in background), I afraid that there is no way to achieve your needs in PowerApps.

 

If you would like this feature to be added in PowerApps, please submit an idea to PowerApps Ideas Forum:

Hi guys!

 

Let's imagine something:

- One of my drivers starts a trip at my app, to start getting the location, but after this, we needs to use a Map to drive.

Is the app abble to get the location without appear in the screen of the smartphone?

 

How can I get this?

 

Thank you.
