firing an app from an app

Hello Everyone

 

Im fairly new in powerapps . I need to Launch an app from another app and go to a particular screen in the destination app.

The destination app I did not write so that it is why its confusing.

The destination app has a app start then it has a start screen and then it goes to another screen called Question screen which opens a series of questions ?

To whoever reads this I want to say thank you for taking the time to read my question

 

Thank you

Marco

Hi @mpezzutti ,

Do you want to fire an app from an app?

 

If you want to fire an app from an app, I think the Launch function could achieve your needs. Firstly, you need to find the Web URL of your destination app firstly.

The Web URL of a canvas app should be as below (Apps -> Your destination app-> Details tab 😞11.JPG

 

Then within your source app, add a Button called "Launch Questions App", set the OnSelect property to following:

Launch("https://apps.powerapps.com/play/5374afc0-b460-4121-866a-2829402a0061?tenantId=xxxxxxxx-f6a5-41a2-xxxx-9785a9d6xxxx", "TargetScreen", "QuestionScreen")

Note: The TargetScreen represents the parameter you want to pass to your destination app, the QuestionScreen represents the parameter value.

Within your destination app, set the OnStart property of App control to following:

Set(targetScreen, Param("TargetScreen"));
If(targetScreen = "QuestionScreen", Navigate(QuestionScreen, ScreenTransition.None))

Please take a try with above solution, check if the issue is solved.

 

Please check and see if the solution in following thread would help in your scenario:
