  • 1.  "make.powerapps.com" shows which apps there?

    Posted Mar 09, 2021 03:35 PM
    I'm new and learning PowerApps.  When I go to make.powerapps.com, I see a list of Apps.  Whose are they?  What determines which apps will be shown to any particular user in that list?

    I would have hoped it would be, only users with whom you have shared your app.  But, belonging to a LARGE organization, I see about 20 apps there.  I've had a hard time surmising what the logic is.  Everyone in my organizations who's created an app?  Surely not - we're a huge organization, although PowerApps is quite new to us, but it would probably be more than 20!  Every app that's been shared with me?  That doesn't seem right either - I'm seeing apps I've never heard of, and surely are not intentionally shared with me.

    I see my own apps there as soon as I saved them to the cloud, without sharing with anyone.  And so does my boss - although I haven't shared with him.

    Seeking a round-up of sorts, some information to round out my understanding of where and by whom my app link will be seen and accessed.

    Make is where apps are made and maintained.
    It's likely that Customize or Admin level access - that means you can see all the apps. Most users would not access power apps via make - they would be given a link to an app, and they if they wanted to use another app the would click the link to the app in the toolbar and see the list of apps to which they have been given access.
    You should also be aware that you can have multiple environments inside your O365 Tenant - see the environment button in the top-right - click that and you will see a list of the environments in your organization - each environment has its own database and suite of apps (if they exist).
    See Power Platform admin center (microsoft.com) - here you will find the admin level above the make environment - be careful in here.
    Tbh, you need to do the training. Click the ? in the top right and explore - there is a ton of excellent resources from MS here.

    Hmm, so it sounds like we're not really sure - that doesn't explain what I am seeing.  I'm level 5 in training and have taken all available MS PowerApps tutorials.  Nowhere did I see this question answered.  Thanks for looking.

    I am part of a large org too and I have found that if someone creates a Model-driven app, I see those but not Canvas apps. Those have to be shared with me in order to see them. Even though I see the model-driven apps, If I try to open them, I don't have access to their database so I can't edit/update or do anything with the app. I have just learned to ignore them.
