What is most valuable?

The most valuable aspect of the solution is the fact it is highly customizable. All types of forms can be created to collect information, pictures, and files. With PowerApps, you can connect your application to a wide variety of databases… more»

How has it helped my organization?

In our organization, PowerApps is used to manage internal requests for expenses, leaves, documents, company resources. One connects to the application, enter the details of the requests and the request flows directly to the appropriate… more»

What needs improvement?

The solution is evolving very fast and every month new features are introduced. Sometimes it's difficult to catch up with all the evolution that's happening. I had to focus on Power BI for a while and left PowerApps at the side for a couple… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The pricing is pretty good. Right now, I'm paying for a two or three-month trial that is priced well. This trial period gives a company time to try an application, develop it, test it, and decide as to whether they will go ahead and pay for… more»

What other advice do I have?

We use the cloud deployment model. I'm a consultant; I work mainly with other companies. Already with what exists, the solution is quite good and we can do quite a lot. I don't think too much can be improved. I'd advise others to make sure… more»

What is most valuable?

The common data point would be the most valuable feature. PowerApps is also usable for data mining, it can be used with Power BI or SQL. All the data integrates easily on all Microsoft apps. And it comes with most of the subscriptions and… more»

What needs improvement?

The product could be improved by making it a production application and enabling the export of apps. If you want to set up a site for home rentals, for example, just a basic outline as a starting point, this can be done. The issue is that… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

I have no idea about licensing costs. I tried contacting Microsoft about this because the information isn't easily available and it was unclear where I could search for this. My guess is that the cost is dependent on the company and product… more»

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I previously used BlinkID but nothing else really has the same power as PowerApps. Google has its Cloud Suite but they've been a bit slack, and Amazon is iffy. They're not really workable here. I live in Kuwait, and there are a lot of… more»

What other advice do I have?

Previously, we had a whole department using the product. When I lived in Australia, it was used for assembling websites and to upload photos, videos and the like. It worked well because it was for internally-based users. My suggestion to… more»

What is most valuable?

I like the status of the flow and the dashboard, with all of the flows that are running and showing the stages of them.

What needs improvement?

If you are accustomed to Microsoft technology, then it's quite easy to learn, but if you are new around the whole online platform of Microsoft, then it takes time. Even if you are familiar with Microsoft products then there is still a learning curve on the use. Previously with Microsoft, they were offering hands-on exercises or labs. I think that should be put back in place. Also, a few years ago… more»

What other advice do I have?

At this time, we are still learning the basics and the setups while discovering the entire product and how to best use it internally. I would suggest investing in the training of the product. It is very important to know the capabilities of the product to be able to address any questions a customer or user may have for you. I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is easily connecting to data services. I can have a SharePoint list and connect with users through PowerApps to present the information. I am also able to connect with Microsoft Flow, which allows me to connect with different people to email and update items in Sharepoint.

What needs improvement?

The editor in the Web browser could be improved because it can be difficult to implement the commands in the buttons. In the next release, I would like to see Microsoft PowerApps be more integrated with Microsoft Teams or SharePoint and with different applications. When I configure PowerApps in Sharepoint it appears that it is not integrated with the page. When it is configured it looks like it is… more»

What other advice do I have?

My advice would be to create a master screen for items like layouts and all of the typography that you may have in your application. Create a master screen widget. The rest of the screen will have, for example, settings for the layout that will refer to these objects in the master screen settings. Mainly for editing. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.
