PowerApps Ideas

New Idea

Three suggestions to make it easier for developers to edit property values:


- when a property value is selected in the right-hand pane, select the same property in the dropdown on the toolbar at the top and vice versa. 


- allow selection in the top property dropdown by typing into the dropdown - ie 'auotocompete/suggest' behaviour


-get rid of the case sensitivity which sometimes gives formula red lines if variables or functions are incorrrectly cased (but not always, and sometimes they go away when clicking away from the edit box). 

The "Data Table Control" function is a very useful function in PowerApps so that I frequently use this functions in the Apps as well. However, it is a little inconvenient that because the "Data Table Control" does not have any options to change the formatting and placement. For instance, the headings are always centered, but the columns in the body are always left-aligned and you cannot align the characters as expected so far.

In order to create more visually beautiful Apps, I hope that [Data Table Control] can be provided the same availability as Excel to enable changing the formatting and placement freely. This will be very helpful functions for many users, so please prospectively consider implementing them.

Thank you for your continued support.

Hi everybody,


I'm designing Apps for my company and I would like to know if something went wrong. So I would like to create an option to report bugs in the App. For this case I need all Information to send a ticket from costumer.


What I need is something like that:





so on...


Didn't find any solution.


Thank you for your help

Power App DOESN'T support Repeating Section

Status: Need Info
by shrinivasJ ‎01-04-2018 09:42 PM - edited ‎01-05-2018 12:07 AM

We have developped a power app to manage "Travel Requests".

We wanted to add itineraries (flight, Train,  Bus, Hotel) to travel request which is repeating in nature.

However Power App doesn't support Repeating Sections. Is Microsoft planning to include this in Power Apps ?

If YES, tentatively by when will it be available for developers. 

I think, this is MUST & critically needed to address most of the business needs in day today life.

Will appreciate your early response on this !

Status: Need Info

Would you please take a look at this webinar? It's where we discuss how this is done in PowerApps. Please let us know if this means your requirements.




Thank you for your continued feedback and support,



I have created a customized my Sharepoint list form with PowerApps, and this is working great in the browser. I have the fields layed out in meaningful tabs, and I use rules to create meaningful behavior in accordance with the desired business logic.


All this is working great in the browser, but when I use the Sharepoint App for iOS or Android, the PowerApp form is NOT used. Instead the user sees the standard form with all the fields in one long row, and with no business rules applied.


The Sharepoint App should use the same form as when using the browser. Mobile first anyone? ;-)


The Office365 User connection should be expanded to get  "myuser group(s)" that the user ( currently logged into the app) belongs to.  I know one can get it via Microsoft Graph (as noted in this blog https://powerapps.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/implementing-role-based-permission/ ) but this is tedious and requires a lot of setup and configuration that seems overkill for trying to get just a list of groups.  Can this be added to the Office365 user connection, please?



We have a long form that is connected to a custom CDS entity.  Rather than go and rename the Datacard fields to meaningful names, it would be nice if the app had an option to default the field names to the entity ( datasource) field names; 


I loved the power apps, thanks for making life so easy. Recently I was doing a POC Sharepoint Versus Custom solution.

Sharepoint does provide everything, the customer loves beautiful , rule based form. which are easy using power apps.

I lost the battle cause - the column hearder were not formatted in default list view, listview (preview) in moder apps leaves column formatting Smiley Sad

I quickyly jumped to powerapps data table and aha ..they are simple grid. Only if I could manage my table more beautifully I could have win.


Request you to make Datatbale in powerapps more functional, more powerful.




We recognized that "Data table control" function in Power Apps is a useful function that can display the data sources in table format, but this function does not allow us to customize the display format at present.
For instance, we can’t put the thousands separator to change the display format from the numerical value [40000] to [40,000].
I assume that if it possible to change the display format by entering math formulas such as Text function as well as thousands separator, we will able to increase the opportunities to utilize data more than now.
So I hope the " Data table control" feature will be improved to be able to change the display format.
Thank you for your consideration.

I may be leaving the company I am with soon, and I'd prefer to be able to change ownership of the application to another developer.  They have "Can Edit", but I'd just be more comfortable doing so.


The current forum recommendation is to contact support.


A UI change to the portal to allow the change of ownership, similar to Microsoft Flow's ability to add multiple owners, would be a great option.

It would be great if I could save screens I've created in one PowerApps app and paste or insert it into another.

Attach a file to form

Status: Started
by on ‎02-01-2017 09:56 PM

I'd like to be able to use a control like the Add Picture button, but for Files of any type.


The control would open up a file picker, I could select the file and then I can upload the same as content from Add Picture.


For example, my current need is to attach a document (doc, ppt, pdf, etc) to an Annotation to a Case in Dynamics 365.

Print & PDF

I have posted the idea of printing along with everyone else, any ETA on this feature?


My thought would solve 2 problems at once. If a PDF conversion is added, files could then be filed, printed and emailed in PDF format. 


You would make a LOT of PowerApp users very happy!

Regular Expressions for inputs

Status: New
by guyinazo on ‎01-10-2018 04:01 AM

I would love to be able to set a Regular Expression (for a format string) on an input textbox like "###-##-####" for SSN or "(999) 999-9999" for a telephone number.  I was directed to post my suggested idea here as I understand that Power Apps does not yet support formatting regular expressions.


Thanks and keep up the great work with this excellent app.  


As a side note, I did see a suggestion to NOT include all of a sharepoint's list items when connecting to a list as I currently am working on one that has 72 items and it takes a while to load up.

Ability to chose the keyboard type (like camera, back and front) 

when i have a numeric field, i can chose to open keyboard only with numbers

Increas UI dramatically


There is another idea similar to mine here in the ideas section which should also be voted for



I want to add that not only should there be a way to add a Custom Connector to your company's Data Loss Protection Policy (DLP) but also the ability to limit it's scope. For instance I've created a custom connector to a department database, even though my PowerApp will be available to all personnel in my company. The custom connector should not be allowed to be implemented into any other app that may be developed within the company. 


Right now all connectors in the Business Data group are available for use within any departments PowerApp.

We need to not only be able to add  Custom Connectors to the DLP business data only group but also be able to limit who can include the connector in their PowerApp.


No joke, I have spent half an hour waiting for a form to load, then removing useless fields, after connecting to a Sharepoint list.

Application Restart

Status: New
by wjhepworth on ‎01-09-2018 10:53 AM


Presently, it is extremely difficult to force OnStart events and OnVisible events to predictably fire when going between development and preview modes.  Strongly recommend a simple Restart button that allows the OnStart event to fire predictably when entering Preview mode.


I would like you to improve the feature that can be changed the display format as same as Excel's when inputting the value to the edit form in PowerApps.

For instance, if I enter the value [54321] and press the [Tab] key, it will be the form in which the digit separator [54,321] is immediately reflected. As for the function of Excel, you can easily change the display format by right-clicking on the cell and selecting [Display format] > [Numerical], and clicking [Use 1000 separator]. In PowerApps form, there is no function available even if you try to set the display format by entering a numeric expression.

In the meantime, we made the separator possible by setting the display format on the label as numeric expression and display/hide the label to separate the digits. ([54321] to [54,321]) In the future, if users will be able to change the display format with simple operation, it gives us a great experience to take advantage of data as well.

Therefore, I hope PowerApps feature will be able to change the display format by operating intuitively as same as the Excel's.

Thank you for your consideration.
