Drag and drop functionality - Timephased

Hi. 

Currently one of the main issues we have with customers and using the very friendly PowerApps interface is that they are used to being able to drag'n'drop elements in all other software/games. 
Which of course leaves them a bit disapointed when we can't provide them with this functionality in any way. 

A use case if often when something is placed on a timeline and they want to move this element in time. 
It would be a huge advantage if there was some way to interact with element in a e.g. a timephased area.

By dragging the element the start/finish date should also be changed accordingly.

It needs to simplify task prioritisation on a custom planning board

Deep down an internet rabbit hole one night I read about this technique on a Japanese blog site about making Powerapps games which sadly I haven't been able to find again since. I am starting to wonder if in fact I dreamt it. Anyway this method allows free and full drag and drop functionality of an icon, image, anything you like in all directions on the screen. It is both beautiful and clever so I wish I could credit the original blogger.

I am at the early stages of experimenting with this but would love to see what others can come up with.

eg. working with an index to move multiple objects around the screen.

Cheers!
