Insight on what this might cost, or what plans are required to achieve this? I think I need login capacity? But which one?

Hi everyone!

 

I can conquer coding challenges in canvas apps, but trying to figure out pricing and plans always makes me feel a bit stupid. Apologies if this is in the wrong area of this forum. Hoping someone with more experience can give insight on what plans would be required for what I would like to do. I think I need login capacity, but which one?

 

Scenario:

We've built an employee management and scheduling app, and I'm trying to find an elegant way where employees can easily submit their availability on upcoming events (via a form), and eventually see their schedule.  Our current solution using Microsoft Forms with the canvas app is clunky, and requires me to either hardcode a flow to each form as it's created, or play with copy/paste/split functions, or manually connect the data once all responses are submitted.  So my goal is to build a canvas 'form' app that I can make do exactly what we need and reduce human error, and allow access for 500+ employees to use a canvas app through a weblink to both respond and see their schedule. 

 

What capacity plan is required to allow 500+ guest accounts to briefly (5-10 mins a day max) use the app? 

 

There are some solutions I've built that make sense to purchase powerapp per app plans to assign for guests. In this case it would be a ridiculous cost for the amount of employees that we see (we work in a stadium). So I'm hoping one of the add-on capacity plans is designed for such needs. 

 

Any insight is appreciated. 

 

Cheers!

BK

Hi @BKOrange,

 

I take since these employees are considered "guests", they do not have any Microsoft 365 licensing?

 

A couple options:

  • Power Apps Portals with authenticated login capacity. You get these in packs of 100 logins/month. Now you'll need to figure out how many peak daily users you'll have in order to figure out the appropriate amount of packs. This will likely require some trial and error so best to start small and add packs if you're exceeding your quota. Note that once you hit 500 logins you should just purchase 1000 because the price is cut in half at the next price tier.
  • If your users already have Microsoft 365 licenses then they get entitlements to Power Apps without additional cost as long as you're using standard connectors.
