Launching App/Web Page in same tab/page of browser.

Currently, PowerApps Launching Function is redirecting another app/page to different tab instead of same page. This feature is good for few schenarios but also we should have capabilities to launch in same page with using specific parameter value like (True/False).


Tipical observation on Launching function::

When I am loading page and clcking button where Launch Function is specified to load another app, it is loading successfully in different tab. But while I am reverting back from 2nd app to parent app with same Launch function with passing parent page web link url then it is loading in Same Tab. When I reach parent page and repeat the same steps, it is working in same tab.


Note: in my observation, Launching different tab only in first time execution of each session. Not sure the reason but observed.

Status: Under Review

Adding @GregLi for the function feedback here, and to talke a look at potential solutions.

Would love to be able to specify this to avoid the end user having a tonne of tabs open. I even tried it in an HTML Text Control but it ignores the target attribute.

Is there any update on this?

Is this thread being reviewed? I really need this functionality

Also waiting on this functionality... this is something that is much needed if you are doing a scenario which you bounce between sharepoint and powerapps

This changed to "under review" a year ago - is there an update or an ETA? Could we all at least know whether this is going to happen or not? I'm trying to pitch using PowerApps to my superiors for a number of solutions, but this has been a dealbreaker for them!


@rc - can you give us an update please?
