Re: Web Users

Figured it out a way to do this.

 

The following code:

If(Not(IsBlank(Param("tenantId"))),"PC", "Cellphone")

 

I can identify who uses PC, and cellphone.


This will get a part of the url. If url doesnt exist, it's mobile, if it does it's PC.

Re: Web Users

At this point the device info is not accessible in PowerApps, although it is a requested feature.  You can vote for the request here:

Other than that your only real choice is to detect based on screen size.

Re: Web Users

@Field 

There is no direct property in the App to determine the device type, but the easiest way at this point is to look for a feature only available on a mobile device.  We use the Acceleration function to determine it. 

Ex:

   Set(_appIsOnDesktop, IsBlank(Acceleration.X))

If you are on a non-mobile device, the acceleration.X will return blank and thus, _appIsOnDesktop will be true.

One word of caution...put this on a time that gives the app a few moments to load.  Sometimes the Acceleration device is not yet initialized if you put it in the OnStart of the App and the mobile device will think it is on the desktop.  Give a second or two delay on the timer on the initial screen and it will have initialized by then.

 

I hope that is helpful for you.
