Notify - add autodisappear and time function

Great to be able to give notifications to the user.


But I think it would be a great idea to add to parameters:

  1. Auto-disappear function - this should be a choice
  2. Time to show before the trickering 1. - this should be optional, so only with 1 selected to Auto-disappear and with a default if not filled.

Formula will then be:

Notify("Text to display", Type off notification, true/false, 2000) 

Last parameter in miliseconds, like in the timer.



Reason is simply that it's irritating for a user when it's needed to manually click away the notification bar, especially when it a information or success notification. For the error and warning I could amagine that you want this manual actie to be performed.


Hope for the support off the community for this functionality.

Status: Started

We have added an additional timeout argument to Notify:


Notify( Message [, NotificationType [ , Timeout ] ] )

  • Message – Required. Message to display to the user.
  • NotificationType – Optional. Type of the message to display from the table above. The default is NotificationType.Information.
  • Timeout – Optional. Number of milliseconds to wait before automatically dismissing the notification. The default is 10 seconds (or 10,000 milliseconds). The notification will be displayed indefinitely with a Timeout of 0.

This will be deployed worldwide within the next four weeks.

Very useful! I could need it for my current project.

Yes. An auto-disable option is a must. Any general information/message just keeps sticking at the top permanently blocking the app header unless, user expliciltly closes it.

Additionally a seperate function to clear ALL notifactions would be very useful.

Yes please, this would be very useful! I have built a webshop-PowerApp and a success Notify appears whenever someone adds something to their cart. Would be a big improvement if there was a timer option to make the Notify disappear after  3-5 seconds.

I'm aware this is not a petition, but for the record I'm in favour!

Great idea, please Microsoft put in on the wall.


Thank you.

Yes! Would be very useful. Have exactly the same request from my customer... As a workaround created custom label which automatically disappears with the help of timer control.

Level: Powered On

Very useful! The notification bar sticks around for far too long by default. I'd also like to be able to position it elsewhere! 


Actually I would really like to be able to apply HTML5 and CSS to my screens.
