Adding a column to a dataverse table directly from a Canvas application

Hello all,


I have created a table in a canvas app that is linked to a dataverse table. And I need a function that allows me to add new columns to this table directly in Powerapps. So that every time I add a new column in my Powerapps table, a new column is also created in the linked Dataverse table.


Is this possible and if so, how can I do this?

Hello @guekjcow,


As per PowerApps, if we create column in Back end then only we can access the same in front end too. There is no possible way of creating field directly from front end to Back end.

Hi @guekjcow ,


Is there a reason you are dynamically adding columns from the front-end?  If you can explain, maybe there is a different way to model the table / relationships to add rows to a related table instead of adding columns.




Hope this helps. Please accept if answers your question or Like if helps in any way.
