Since launching our communities, one of our ongoing goals has been to create a “home” where we could easily feature some of the most-used or looked-for pages, as well as simplifying how users could find what they were looking for. Our team has been working on a“front door” to all the incredible tools you are looking for when you visit our site, providing you with the best experience, including findability and a one-stop-shop for all things Power Platform.
Some of you who have read my posts will know I have an aversion to complex column types for data fields in Power Apps unless there is a good and necessary reason to use them. On the lesser end of this scale, Choice columns cannot be used to Sort by in a Delegable manner and still in general add a level of complexity that may not be needed if you are only using single choices. You can of course "hard code" them in Power Apps Drop-down /Combo Box controls, but any changes require design privileges in Power Apps, not something you always want.
I was building a very complex PowerApps (Canvas) screen that included too many controls and that has affected my screen and app performance. One of the recommendations that PowerApps provided is to break the App into multiple apps and I did exactly that. Then I had to build the mechanism to navigate back and forth between my main app and the new app and that is why I am writing this blog.
So our Use case is that we have two PowerApps applications and we need to navigate from one app to another and go back and forth between the two.
I will name my first application APP A and my second application APP B.
