Anyone can build apps with Power Apps
Build and share apps
With Power Apps, everyone from business analysts to professional developers can work together more efficiently. You can solve business problems with intuitive visual tools that do not require code.
You can work faster with a platform where you can integrate and distribute data, and you can expand the platform with additional components for professional developers. With Power Apps, you can easily build and share apps on any device.
Increase innovation in the company
With Power Apps, you can add digital transformation to manual and outdated processes.
You can easily create a wide range of app scenarios and you can use both Canvas Apps and Model-Driven Apps to build Power Apps. This way, you can solve challenges for your business, including:
Build Canvas Apps with Power Apps
Canvas Apps – Build customized applications
Canvas Apps lets you build apps from a blank canvas (hence the name) without the use of complicated code or programming. To create an app, you can use drag and drop and insert the elements on your canvas that you want. And you can format conditions and settings continuously.
If you use existing data sources, you can create apps that integrate directly with the data sources without any problems. You can use a variety of both Microsoft and third-party sources, all of which are compatible with Power Apps. In fact, Microsoft has developed over 200 unique sources for data integration, including Office 365, Dynamics 365, SQL, and Common Data Service. That way, you can create apps that can be easily shared.
How to build Canvas Apps
Model Driven Apps with Power Apps
Model-Driven apps – Create advanced apps based on your data
If your app needs complex business logics, use Model-Driven Apps. Model-Driven Apps can run alone or as back end to Canvas Apps. Once you have the data under control, you can use the app designer to develop the final product. And you can subsequently customize your app.

The difference between Canvas Apps and Model-Driven Apps
Canvas Apps solve specific problems, and Model-Driven apps support complex processes that can even span over many sub-processes and different types of data. Canvas Apps and Model-Driven Apps are great for supporting each other.
Example: Collecting leads at trade fairs
A good example of this is a trade fair situation where sellers can make use of a simple Canvas App with a business card reader, which automatically creates leads based on scanned business cards.
Once the salespeople are done at the show, they can use either a limited Model-Driven App or Microsoft’s own Sales app (which is also a Model Driven App) to qualify the leads they generated through the Canvas App. In this case, one can consider the Canvas App as a data collector while the Model-Driven app enriches the collected data.
Example: Requesting hardware
Another example is a collaboration with an external supplier of hardware, which the company’s employees must be able to order from themselves. The external vendor can provide data on the available products either via a custom connector or an Excel sheet in a SharePoint folder. A Canvas App can then display data with a graphical interface for requisitioning hardware.
When a user requisitions some hardware, a requisition entry is created in a custom table in the Common Data Service. It is then possible to use Power Automate to initiate an approval flow. This flow can, for example, be divided into different roles in the hierarchy, depending on the price of the requisitioned hardware. Once a requisition has been approved, the back office can work further with it in a Model-Driven App, where an ordering and delivery process is run through by the responsible employees.
The above example will eliminate the need for order forms via email, intranet, or paper. It is thus possible to control the logic of who is to approve a requisition based on authority level. At the same time, the back office will not have to enter orders manually. All data will be mapped from the data source, that the supplier makes available for the Canvas App, directly over to the records that back office will continue working with when they order the hardware from the external supplier.
