As this is designed for ENTERPRISE, printing from the within the APPS will make PowerApps superior to Excel and even ERP / SAP system. If ONENOTE can be accomplished (for printing) after our request, why not PowerApps.
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
It seams that you can let your organisation use the app, but I would love that users outside my domain also could get and use the app. That might be some of our customers f.i., so "Send invite" through email would be great!
Currently, lookup fields of Sharepoint list are not appearing. This is a major limitation. Lookup fields should be displayed and set to the LookupValue. Ideally LookupId should also be accessible in a second field.
Indeed, innovative non-developers have great ideas and this tool empowers them to easily build UIs with my APIApps for a backend.
But with ease of use comes limitations - inevitably many PowerApps will need functionality that the PowerApps designer cannot handle. At this point the app needs to be exported and extended using Visual studio or other dev tools.
With Siena this was somewhat available by cracking the .appx.
Currently you can only use the Tablet Layout when creating a blank app. Can you please include this layout when generating an app from a data source? I really think this should be a high priority. The option to switch between layouts would be nice too.
It takes a long time to build an app from scratch, particularly as the gallery control in a blank app does not seem to find fields/columns in the data source (I've updated the Items formula, but it cannot find the columns, despite having used them successfully in the same app generated using Phone Layout).
I think it would be a good idea to have better code editor and user defined functions/macros or what ever the name, to make the code inside PowerApps more readable and reuseable. It is errorprone to write long nested strings of commands inside a simple multiline textbox.
For example this is OnSelect code of a button on an app I'm developing. I'll try to explain how to make it more readable below.
I want to suggest that there be a file uploader(Control or Button ) to be used to upload files from local to the required locations like Sharepoint/Cloud/Onedrive etc.
Currently there is Addimage is present based on that we can select only the images types only and not able to change the file type eventhough there is Allfiles are showing in the OpenDialog.Things to be updated like seprate control or the Addimage control to be modfied to pick any file that can be saved in the prefered location as mentioned above.
I checked another approach also using the Import control. This also not support the all files it supports the zip formate.
For Clients as developers we will not suggest to zip your file every timea and use the Import .
One more thing i need to add to this is while using the Export and Import controls genrated files are not usefull outside the PowerApps, if those files can access in their original formate from outside that will be very usefull.
IF we provide the Upload functionality the end user who uses the app they can easily upload thier files useing the app which is devloped in the PowerApps.
Example: Am a user i want to upload file which is present in my mobile phone or file which is persent in my local on the desktop.
If these is the requirement, to provide solution to this using powerApps now it is not possible.
If these is achived in PowerApps End user will go for the uploads provideded by the App which is built on the powerApps.
