We think it'd be really cool if there was a Toggle Switch at the top of the development studio (next to the run arrow?) that turns off real-time code execution. This would really improve the speed of development since complex apps can get really bogged down by small edits sometimes.
I have received some feedback from my app users that it is sometimes hard to tell when image or text is clickable. On the desktop version, when you hover over an image the icon remains the same or when you hover a text it changes to the edit text icon, the mouse icon seems to change to hand icon only when hovering over objects like Icons or Controls like Button control.
Example 1 The text in the Org Browser by Microsoft says View My Profile, when hovering over it with mouse, the mouse icon changes to select text icon.
Example 2 When using images as buttons, the mouse will stay as a cursor and will not change to the hand icon.
Example 3 Hovering mouse over the button. It changes to hand icon and it is clear that you can click it.
This is not a problem on the Phone since you click with your fingers but it confuses the users on desktop. Would it be possible to make all objects with functions in OnSelect property to have a <a> tag or something similar that it would force the mouse cursor to change into hand?
Would be useful if the IsMatch function had a baby brother that couldextract/returna substring from a parent string by using a regex pattern. Either as a separate function or perhaps as an additional or optional output of the IsMatch function.
This is especially useful for strings that are variable where left/mid/right won't, but have predictable structure/patterns that regex can pick up.
We desparately need to have access to more than one value when accessing a relationship/lookup. Even when the data is stored in a collection, you can only access one value from the lookup field (mainly the PrimaryId unless you put another value that you want to access as Value1 when accessing the lookup and then store that value in another entity). When creating more powerful apps, we are having to create work-arounds by storing extra information in entities that should be accessible via a lookup. For one, it is bad programming when you store the same information twice or check for the same thing multiple times. Not only that, it creates the possibility of data loss and slower functionality.
To create more powerful apps and keep consistent data, we need to be able to access more information via a relationship/lookup, even if it is only available when accessing that information in collections (which is good programming anyway).
We need the ability to rollback PowerApps Studio to previous versions - at least back to a widely-accepted stable version.
As an example of why this is important - the release of Powerapps 2.0.69 causes the datatables in my App to lose all fields, field configurations and scripts when I open the application in development mode. Effectively, I can not edit my App without severely breaking it until this bug is fixed. Without the ability to rollback, all of my productivity is stalled for Powerapps development/deployment.
I think it will be quite handy to have set of "motion triggers" in PowerApps to extend the capability of event handler beyond the traditional Onselect, onvisible, etc. i believe we need to have more of interactive event handlers, like swipe right, swipe left and many other we have in many of mobile apps currently available.
My main blocking point right now, is that I can not attach files to SharePoint list via PoweApps edit forms.
I can create app which can manage orders in SharePoint list for my company in few seconds, but we are forced to keep original email request in list. For this we are using InfoPath which works fine, but PowerApps should be much more suitable solution.
Also we are using same procedure but with excel forms, for that is also important to be able to EDIT excel/word... attachment directly on SharePoint. So what I would like to have in DisplayForm/edit form, when I click on excel file attached, it will open my excel, let me edit it and save it back directly to SharePoint like is possible now with forms on SharePoint.
Once I will have those 2 things in PowerApps, my live will be much more easier!
Would like to use PowerApps in our company, but right now... its not possible
I recently built a global app to work offline when needed but PowerApps doesnt not support multi languages offline. When I change my OS language to Spanish from English (App is built using English) and then go offline my buttons and some texts disappear.
Currently the Remove/RemoveIf functions have a return value of the target data source without the removed item(s). This is counterintuitive and useless for positive confirmation of the deletion of the record(s) for tables > 500 records, since this function is not delegated.
Please provide Delete/DeleteIf functions that have a retrun value of the deleted record(s)
