Re: Common Data Service File Size

Hi @Jfreitas ,

Let me explain you Common Data Service.

This is a new database inside PowerApps.

You can securely store your business data in Common Data Service and build rich apps in PowerApps so that users can manage that data.

Common Data Service File Size means that how many data can be stored inside this database.

You could choose it according to your demands.

I suggest you kown more about CDS which is a really useful database when using PowerApps.

Here's a doc about CDS for your reference:
