Did you mean: 

allow anonymous/non-company users to access your powerapp

it would be nice to be able to use this to request data from individuals not within our company - and submit that data into a sharepoint list.(or SQL)

Status: Completed

The ability to share canvas apps with external users is now availabile in public preview! The documentation can be found here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powerapps/maker/canvas-apps/share-app#share-with-guests

Advocate I

our primary use case of power apps depends on somehow allowing external people to access (either allow anyone to access readonly power apps or somehow allow external people to login without needing to register AD & powerapps)

so it would be fantastic to see

Audrie, last year you wrote that the request was under review. Also one of your colleauges claiming that it does’t require major changes. It would be great to know if and whe. The option to be used for external users can be made available.

I'm 100% sure, if Microsoft allows PowerApps for anonymous users, there are some corporate relevant /irrelevant Android apps in the market, so PowerAp will eat everyone. 

so we request you MS Team think about it.

Non-company user access has started.  Anonymous has not.

Agreed. This anonymous access would be a very nice to have in PowerApps. That said, at the moment you can combine PowerApps, Flow and Microsoft Forms and do exactly what you are wanting to do. I recently posted a tutorial video that explains how to do it -

Fast forward two years, and now that we're in 2019, has there been any movement on this request????

I work for a municipality local goverment.  I need to gather all information from our city residents who doesn't need to have Azure ID.   This proposed idea is a MUST thing for me.

Power Apps

Microsoft is actively building the capability to enable sharing a canvas app with guest users. It was announced as part of the 2019 wave 2 release notes: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-platform-release-plan/2019wave2/microsoft-powerapps/share-app... 

 

You can invite external business partners, contractors, and third parties to run your company’s canvas apps. You can share your apps with any guest of your Azure Active Directory tenant. 

 

It will be available in public preview in August 2019. 

 

@Voicekeeper -  Your use case may be better suited by PowerApps Portal, you can review release notes for PowerApps Portal here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-platform-release-plan/2019wave2/microsoft-powerapps/portal
