How to Register for a Community Account

This article will give you an overview of registering for a community account in the following communities.

You may use an Azure Active Directory (AAD) account or a Microsoft Account (MSA). An AAD account can be an organizational account that you use for work or school.

 

Note: For the purpose of this article we have used images from the Power Apps Community to show examples.  

 

If you are using an Organizational Account:

Step One:  Navigate to the Power Platform Communities: Power Apps, Power Automate, Power Virtual Agents and click 'Sign In'.

Privacy Notice

Please note that when you register your Power Platform Communities (Power Apps, Power Automate, Power Virtual Agents) credentials under an organizational account, you will be offered a streamlined personal data management experience through your organization. Actions initiated to export personal data, delete personal data or account closure now need to be initiated directly with the administrator of your organization. After the transition is complete, your ability to access or delete your personal data will be administered by the organization that owns your domain. Although Microsoft continues to be ultimately in control of your personal data, you need to contact your organizational administrator to manage it. Organizational administrators can put in an export or access request to their Admin portal and a link will be available to them to download your personal data in less than 30 days. 

 

If you are using an MSA Account:

Step One: Navigate to the Power Platform Communities: Power Apps, Power Automate, Power Virtual Agents and click on the “Register” button.
