Feature details

Inviting external users to use canvas apps has been the top ask from the customers. With this feature, customers can now share their mobile canvas apps with business-to-business (B2B) and business-to-consumer (B2C) guest users. Once shared, guest users can easily access canvas apps on mobile using the same flow as using the apps from their own tenant. Guest users find it easy and intuitive to use apps across tenants.

More about this feature:

  • It supports B2B scenarios where a guest user with an Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) account can access the canvas app in a different Azure AD tenant by simply entering their guest email address in PowerApps Mobile.

  • In a B2B scenario, users will have an easy tenant-switching capability within PowerApps Mobile so that they can switch between tenants and access apps across them.

  • This feature also supports B2C scenarios where a guest user with a personal account can access the canvas app in an Azure AD tenant easily on mobile.
