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).
On the menu of all apps, the name of the person that created the app is listed under the app title and in the environment/info details. I would like a way to make this optional. I work in a large corp (over 150,000 people), and having my name on there incites people call me when they need help on the app or their connection to it goes down. I cannot provide that help to them. It would be great to be able to list the correct person or even a helpline # for users to contact with questions.
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)
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.
I am currently able to make the user to use PowerApps without any admin's permission along with direct access to URL in case the Self sign up is acceptable even if Office365 tile is hidden along with the license once deleted by an admin. When I wish to restrict the user's utilization of PowerApps as an internal security measure, I am unable to make a limit only on each of the tenant. That is very inconvenient for me. As a consequence, I hope you forbid the users with the disabled license to use PowerApps because of security concerns.
I'm working a lot on the web editor and it crashes a lot (for some reason it sometimes give errors and crashes). Then all my work is lost and I have to start over. Is there a possibility to have an autosave functionality? Now I need to do constantly CTRL + S to make sure nothing gets lost. Also if the session is expired and you haven't saved, your work is also lost.
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
We need the ability to get various metadata about the app using formula. For example it woud be great to display the version number and relelase date of the app rather than manually adding them in a text field.
