The Ultimate Guide to What to Use When in Power Apps: Data Sources and User Interfaces

What We’re Tackling: Choosing the Right App Type

Jump straight into the world of Power Apps with us, Lisa and Luise, as we demystify the choices between Model-Driven Apps and Canvas Apps. We’ll start by defining what these two paths entail and which scenarios are best suited for each. Understand the key differences and when a straightforward flat list or a more complex, feature-rich Model-Driven-App is the way to go.

How to Make It Work: Strategies and Techniques

Next, we delve into the ‘how.’ How do you integrate richer designs that we know from Canvas Apps into Model-Driven-Apps with custom pages when your project demands more in terms of UI? We’re here to show you the ropes with practical examples and step-by-step guides. Learn how to strike the perfect balance between complexity and simplicity in your Power Apps projects.

Why This Matters: Data Sources and Decision Making

Choosing the right data source can make or break your app. We’ll walk you through the pros and cons of different data sources like Dataverse, SQL, and SharePoint lists. Why pick one over the other? What impact does it have on your app’s performance and scalability? We’ll answer these crucial questions.
