Return location

Is there a way to return the user's location? What I want is when the user clicks a text input, the user's location is printed on that input

Re: Return location

Please look at the Location function we have: https://powerapps.microsoft.com/en-us/tutorials/signals/

It will be the GPS co-ordinates of the user.

 

If you want to look up the address, you can connect to Bing Maps connector to do a reverse lookup.

 

I have never used Google Maps api, but even that can also work.
