How To create a blank Canvas app in PowerApps

Scenario: after seeing in the previous post how to create a new PowerApps environment now we will see how to create our first blank Canvas app.

Solution: go to PowerApps portal https://web.powerapps.com, select the correct PowerApps environment, then select Solutions from the left panel and Common Data Service Default Solution in order to insert our app in this solution.

Click New > App > Canvas App and select the type (phone or tablet) from top menu.

PowerApps Studio will be open and you can see the empty app. Here we have the opportunity to start developing the app (we’ll see it in the next post!).

Selecting File from the top menu it will be possible to set some app properties such as the Name, Icon, Description, Orientation and then choose Save (in cloud or locally).

Go back to PowerApps portal https://web.powerapps.com into Common Data Service Default Solution, now you will be able to see your newly created app and then Publish.

To try the app in the web browser click on the app name and then select Play.

Hope it helps and happy 365Power’ing!
