PowerApps is a powerful tool in the Microsoft 365 toolbox which allows users to interact easily with data. It empowers businesses to build and deploy apps without a developer, super handy when resources run short.
The platform can pull together data from a range of sources (such as SharePoint, SQL Server, Salesforce, Oracle, Dynamics, Common Data Service or Twitter) and display it in a user-friendly, code-free interface. And to help get you up and running, Microsoft has released a collection of PowerApps templates to meet some common business needs.
Most of these templates have guides from Microsoft to walk through the set up and configuration of each element of the app. There are also a collection of templates Microsoft has released which require further configuration or a premium license, which can be found here.
The list of available templates is quite expansive and covers a variety of industries and business needs. There are a few which meet some common business requests and can be launched quickly and easily.
