Power Apps | Power Apps October 2021 Release Wave 2 updates | Brief Summary

The Power Apps October release wave 2 makes discovering data much easier and comes with enhanced UI experiences that are modern.

How to try out the Power Apps October 2021 Release Wave 2 updates?
  • Start by opting your environment into the October release wave 2, learn how here.
  • We have a list of the Power Apps early access features here and Dynamics 365 apps early access features here.
Discovering Data

Finding data in Power Apps continues to get easier with every major release.

New Global search

Global search is moved to a prominent place in the header, and it can be found easily on any page in all model-driven apps, consistently. It is powered by Relevance Search, which is now enabled by default for all production environments. The new search is fast, more accurate and more intelligent than ever.

Customizable quick actions

As an extension of new search, customizable quick actions help you find and act on your information with ease and without losing context of your work.

Advanced Lookup

Lookups are a core component of model-driven apps, as they help bring underlying data relationships in Microsoft Dataverse to life. With 2021 release wave 2, model apps have advanced lookup – a set of usability enhancements to help you explore and find that data easily, so you are more productive with data entry tasks.

Power Apps grid

Model-driven apps are first to feature the new Power Apps grid, a new read-only grid control, both inside the view page and inside forms (sub-grids). The new grid control follows Microsoft Accessibility Standard.

Usability Improvements

Accessibility updates

With this release, several accessibility compliances updates have been done for Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1, including core shell and page support for zoom up to 400%, improved progressive collapse, and keyboard support access.

Sharing Records

Users will experience a new and streamlined Unified Interface experience when sharing rows with other users and teams in a model-driven app. This provides a Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 accessible experience by using modern dialogs and controls.

Bulk Edit

Users can now edit multiple rows quickly by using the Unified Interface dialog experience, which meets all WCAG 2.1 requirements and supports reflow across all viewport sizes. The new experience lets users choose the form most familiar to them or easily switch between forms if needed to edit fields on a record. It’s also supporting mobile experiences.

App-level Panes

Model-driven apps now support the ability to have multiple app-level side panes. This new feature creates a collection of tabs, each with a different pane. Omnichannel for Customer Service and Dynamics 365 Customer Service products have a similar experience of multiple tabs within the single pane. That experience is moving into the app side pane and allowing additional panes to be added.

Modern Experiences

Custom pages

Custom pages in a model-driven app provide flexibility and ease of authoring which are difficult to accomplish within existing model pages. App creation in Power Apps is no longer an upfront decision between the canvas and model. When you start with the model-driven app you can easily add custom pages to take advantage of the power of canvas authoring.

App Designer

It is now easier and faster than ever to get started and build model-driven apps. With just a few clicks, you can get robust, powerful grids and forms on top of Dataverse, and preview your app changes directly in the authoring experience.

Modern Browsers

Power Apps is supporting the latest browsers so you can experience and create apps with the speed you expect in these modern times. We recommend you check out Microsoft Edge if you are running a legacy browser. The legacy custom app is now removed so end users do not get confused when selecting their Model-driven app.

Power Apps | Announcing VNet Connectivity for Power Platform Dataflows | Public Preview

Our key focus has been on protecting your data on the Microsoft cloud and ensuring secure and authorized access to this data.

Power Apps | Canvas components can now access App Scope directly

Until now, canvas components have been properly encapsulated and could not access information and resources from the app. Everything needed to be passed into the component through input properties. We did this to make it easier to share components across apps by using a component library. Strict encapsulation ensures maximum sharing.

But sometimes you want to define a component just for this app. You want to reuse a UI widget or create a user defined function as an output property. No need to worry about sharing. And to make it easier to write and maintain, let it share in the app’s scope. We have introduced a new component setting that does exactly this Access app scope.

Training and Learning Corner

Power Apps | ProDev | Public Preview | Announcing the public preview for connection references support in Power Platform Build Tools

We are happy to announce the public preview of being able to set connection references and environment variables by providing a deployment settings file. We know a lot of customers having been asking for this capability, so without further ado, Check here the details of this new capability.
  • Connector is the interface used by the Power Platform Application to connect with a data source, and the connection contains the identity or the means with which the connector can get to the data.
  • Connection reference is a value that binds together the connector and connection details with a given application that needs to move from a source environment to a target environment.
  • This experience is straight forward in the interactive UI, and we were asked by customers like yourselves to provide such a capability or something like use with automated pipelines. Well, are now one step closer to providing such a capability via the CI/CD.
  • To be clear the public preview capability does not create the connection id in the target environment, it must be manually created, once the values are in the file, then the CI/CD pipeline can proceed as normal with the solution deployment.
Learn more on this page of Power Apps blog.

Power Apps | ProDev | Writing Power Fx formulas with natural language | Public Preview

With the announcement at this year’s Build conference, you may have already heard about Power Apps Ideas, an AI-powered assistance to help anyone create apps using natural language. Now we’re excited to tell you that this feature is now in public preview.

Learn more on this page of Power Apps blog.

Power Apps | ProDev| Add Code to your custom Connector | Public Preview

Custom connector developers can now add C# code directly within the Custom Connector wizard! This new experience is currently available in public preview.

Prior to this new experience, payload transformations were limited to policy templates. Now, you can support more transformation scenarios without having to worry about hosting your code. Some examples include:
  • sending external requests to fetch additional data
  • complex body, query, header, and status transformations
  • handling pagination and many more!
Learn more on this page of Power Automate blog.

Power Apps | Monitoring | Log plug-in telemetry to your Application Insights resource
  • When you opt-in to the Application Insights integration described in the earlier Announcing Monitor model-driven apps using Application Insights (Preview) post, you can also use the new Microsoft.Xrm.Sdk.PluginTelemetry.ILogger Interface in your plug-in code.
  • You should use ILogger because it allows telemetry for events that occur within a plug-in to be integrated with the larger scope of data captured with the Application Insights integration.
  • The ITracingService available for plug-ins has never been intended to provide a telemetry solution. It is intended to facilitate debugging runtime errors. With ILogger, you can capture true telemetry data that will persist for as long as you choose to retain it. This data will allow you to capture metrics over time and use Application Insights capabilities to view and analyze the data. You can configure alerts to be sent when specified conditions occur.
To learn more, go to Write Telemetry to your Application Insights resource using ILogger (Preview).
