Using PowerApps abroad

Hi All,

This may be a silly question but i cannot seem to find the answer anywhere. 

 

I have created an app in the UK for work, the app is taking off well, and being a global company the powers that be want to use the app elsewhere in the business. 

 

I have been asked if the app will work aboard particularly in in Africa. I cant seem to find anything in our licence stating if it will or wont or anything online.

 

So, the question being: Will the app (created in the UK) work anywhere in the world as long as we have an internet connection? We also have a business VPN to connect to all the business connections in the app.

 

Thank you to anyone that can answer, and appologies if this is an obvious question.

Hi @AndyFitz 

There is nothing (from a licensing or technical perspective) that would prevent your app from working anywhere in the world. 

If you're based in the UK, your environment will most likely be set up to use the UK or Europe data centre.

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-platform/admin/regions-overview

These are the data centres that are geographically closest to Africa, so your performance should be pretty optimal.

The only other comment I have is that it might be worth you reading this post on number formats/South Africa locale to see if this issue may or may not apply to you.
