Selecting an user name, get Office 365 User profile Picture. Right now we can use only User().Image and get the current user picture but if i want to make an app that show all the workers from my company( reading from CRM or Sharepoint list) I would like to show the user picture and the user info.
To me, the really BIG market for Power Apps is with SMEs who need to be able to build line of mobile and web based business apps themselves (or have a consultant do it for them). Most of these will not have Azure accounts and would probably be put off by the techy nature of it.
Also, aimed at IWs, they are more likely to spend their time in Office 365 / Sharepoint.
With AWA, there have been complaints that hosting in Sharepoint is a limitation - although I disagree strongly. It may be better, therefore for PA to have it's own environment and completely hide it's reliance on Azure services from users (as AWA does).
Now we have barcode scanning it would also be good to have barcode generation into an image. In my application this would be used for an eID Card where I need a barcode on the card. Currently I only need it to be Code 39 for an ID number but it would be nice to generate QR codes to transfere information like text or a set of values by scanning the code as well.
We should also consider creating the capability of allowing us to connect to payment providers like (Paypal, Ituit, Square, etc). This will allows us to accept payments within our apps. Example: People in the field who are at customers site performing a job from a ticket that was assigned to them and enters the details of that job information in that ticket. When the job is completed, they can create an invoice or open existing invoice and accept payment for their work.
Currently it seems that PowerApps Studio (v 2.0.440) diplays the columns/fields of collections in alpabetical order in the Content -> Collections menu. It does not display columns/fields in their actual order. This is unhelpful since column ordering is important for example for debugging chart displays.
Please make the Content->Collections display collection colums/fields in their actual order as opposed to alphabetical order.
I am requesting a reasonable way to migrate apps and entities from Legacy environments to new environments. I want to remain a customer and developer of PowerApps, but there are significant challenges if you are like me and you have lots of apps which each use lots of custom entities. Remaking all the entities, and re-adding all the entities in every single app, and then re-saving it onto a new environment will give me access to new security features. But there is no easy way to do it.
The export function does not work on legacy. All I want is to get my fields copied from legacy to a new environment. If I can just get that, it will save so many hours of labor.
The blog says:
"Custom entities and customizations to standard entities will need to be manually recreated in the new environment, because there is currently no way to export them from the Preview environment."
Is there going to be a way in the future? If so, are you thinking near-term, and if not--why not?
What is the best method to know the cameraID? what is the cameraID of the selfie camera? what about the main camera? 0? 1? 2? 1000? Is the camera ID device dependent?
On iOS the main camera id is 2, the selfie camera is 0 or -1. Not sure if it is the same on android, couldn't test this yet In the Windows Phone environment. the main camera has 0 as Camera ID. the front facing camera is not 1. or 2. or 3.
Camera ID should be consistent. ex: 1 for Selfie. 2 for Main. ACROSS IOS, ANDROID, Windows
Please let us know which is which. Please be consistent. Thanks.
WhatsApp is very common. Please add a connection so that any changes in PoewrApps can be notified through WhatsApp. Since PowerApps is cloud-based, definitely using WhatsApp is PLUS point and save cost instead of using SMS.
