Create a powerapp connected to Dynamics 365 with offline capability

I'm really excited by the new updates where PowerApps can be developed for offline use and also the connection with Dynamics 365 but I can't see if the two are possible together. So, my question is, can you develop a PowerApp connected to Dynamics 365 that can be used offline?

Re: Create a powerapp connected to Dynamics 365 with offline capability

Hi @LeonieW,

 

This should be possible according to the documentation:

https://powerapps.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/build-offline-apps-with-new-powerapps-capabilities/

 

One of the interesting aspect of PowerApps is that it offers a set of capabilities and formulas that allow you to filter, search, sort, aggregate, insert and manipulate data that is consistent regardless of the data source such as if you are using a SQL database, a SharePoint List, a Common Data Service entity, or even collections that are locally stored the device.

@LeonieW .

 

Did you get anywhere with this, as it is something I will be looking at in the next few weeks.

 

Thanks

Re: Create a powerapp connected to Dynamics 365 with offline capability

sorry, haven't been here for a while - no, I didn't.  I know it's possible as the CRM vendor has talked about that as another option instead of the Resco mobile app, but I don't know how do it yet.  I couldn't get past being able to create a new record with account/customer field lookups, uses a plug in I think - so I never investigated the offline piece of the project - not much point if I can't even create the record!
