Dear Community, I am grateful for everyone's support here.


I have worked with canvas apps but i still count myself super intermediate. However i am changing my organization where i would be using Dataverse apps instead of canvas apps, i never used or have idea about dataverse apps, are they same as canvas apps? 


my organization which i have not joined yet, told me that they use dataverse apps along with react and angular so i would be grateful if you could guide me through or any learning material so i can get my handson before joining as i am starting in a 12 days.


I would be grateful for your guidance.


Kind regards

Hi @cryptosun ,


There are a couple of types of Power Apps including Canvas and Model-based Power Apps.  Both of these can utilize Dataverse as a data source behind the scenes.  


Model-based Power Apps can leverage the best of the Dataverse (out-of-the-box) vs. Canvas Apps where you still need to build some of the capabilities that come in Model Apps.  '


Here is an article I wrote recently:  It is focused on Dataverse vs. Azure SQL but you will see a number of benefits that can be leveraged within Model-Apps by leveraging Dataverse.


Some good overview / training: 



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