Multiple Instances

Right now you can open one PowerApp in view mode while another app is opened up in edit-mode. That's great for editing and testing your app.

Yet if you developed more than one app, only one app can be run at a given time. Since apps can be pinned, it would be great to be able to open more than one PowerApp at a time.

The ability to open multiple windows of PowerApps also lets you copy paste from one app to another more efficiently.

multi tasking is common. MS office can open multiple apps, too

Thanks for the feedback Brian!

We are currently looking at improving the core set of features around running a single app and will add this work to our backlog.

Thanks again for your feedback.

I posted a similar concern in the PowerApps blog.  .

made me wonder, how does the PowerApps team use their system?

below is my post and the reply

it seems there is something cooking.



PowerApps limits me to open ONE APP AT A TIME.

Am I missing something?

it would have been nicer, more practical and more productive if i can open multiple instances of this app.

currently there is no easy way for me to compare my version 1 code with my version 2 code.
i should be able to easily copy a formula from one project to another.

please fix this. otherwise, i dont see the Power in PowerApps.

I need this too.


If I just want to check how thing X is done in PowerApp Y, I need to save and close the PowerApp Z I am working on, open the PowerApp Y, check the thing, close it, open Z again.
