Browser or Desktop View

I know that Microsoft is in the mode of mobile first, but when will browser / desktop views be available? We have built some complex forms and views using InfoPath and PowerApps is a bit limiting in this regard.

Status: Completed

When building apps to be run in the browser exclusively, I would recommend that you select the "Tablet Format". This format is designed to work well on desktops, tablets, and even large phone screens. It is on our roadmap to further enhance this experience so that you may create apps from data using the Tablet format, however I don't have any specific dates to share yet.

 

Please feel confident that any app you build in tablet mode will work well in a browser / desktop view in the meanwhile. We have a great selection of templates you can use to get started building beatiful apps for destop and browser. You can locate these at web.powerapps.com on the Home page. Click on the Office filter in the templates section to see some of my favorites.

 

Please review these articles for additional guidance:

https://docs.microsoft.com/powerapps/maker/canvas-apps/set-aspect-ratio-portrait-landscape

https://docs.microsoft.com/powerapps/maker/canvas-apps/get-started-test-drive

 

We will continue to enhance formatting options, and have fully responsive design available now in Model Driven Apps, with roadmap plans to include fully responsive app design in canvas as well.

Thank you for your patience and continued feedback,

@Rainson Could you private message me your email so I can open a Skype session to discuss with you? Not sure if we mean the same thing by the word "view". In this case the Desktop view is just a way of playing an app in the browser for desktop viewing. But I could be misunderstanding.

 

Thank you,

Audrie

Note above I mentioned that responsive design is available today in Model Driven app design. Responsive design is planned for Canvas as well, but no definitive dates can been announced yet.

 

Thank you for your patience.

 Hi @Audrie-MSFT,

the responsive layout for Canvas Apps should be in public preview now (see: Canvas Responsive Layout). Do you can give us some additional information on this? 

We will need this imediatly...

Thanks!
