I created an App within Teams (Dataverse). I noticed that a new environment is created for this.
I published the App which works well within the Teams Channel associated with, however this same App will not open in a browser and only works within teams. Is there a way around this because people do have a need to switch between channels and screens within the Teams environment and returning back to the App seems to load from the beginning each time you go into it.
I don't believe you can open the app outside of Teams. Possibly due to it being coupled with the Dataverse instance and the users security / permissions that sits within the Team environment. I tried this on an app I recently built and it wouldn't allow me to open in a browser either.
I would also be keen on the solution if anyone else knows how to open the app in a browser!
A couple of options that might help with your use case though...
Hope that helps!
I found the following in the Microsoft documentation
Not sure if this helps...
Thanks @dpoggemann, I just tried this again and it's now working! I've made no changes so not sure what was wrong originally.
If I open the app in either Teams Desktop or Teams Web, and choose the Go To Website option form the top righthand side, it correctly opens the app in my browser.
Might be worth trying again @Mo_Islam. If it doesn't work, can you post what page or error you get?
Sorry I missed a limitation here... You need to have a Power Apps license to do this part...
Sorry about that.
So where we have powerapps licensing as part of our organisation plan (but not CDS), does that mean teams powerapps on dataverse cannot be run on a web browser (even by following the link)?
Trial mode will expire I'm assuming and will require to purchase a separate license?
From what I understand that is correct, if you user wants to run the app outside of teams then they need to have the appropriate Power Apps license (Power App Per App, Power App Per User).
