Welcome to the PowerApps “Collections Cookbook”.
Inside you will find over 50 examples of how to do various tasks with Collections. Each page contains code and a visual to show what the code is doing.
COPY + PASTE code from the cookbook into your own app. Just change the Collection name and column names to match your own.
Add the app to a Microsoft Teams tab for instant access. I like to keep the Collections Cookbook close by while coding PowerApps. That way I can quickly look for code to solve the problem I am having and the solutions are all in one place.
