Released version 19.20
Version 19.20 for Make.PowerApps.com and App.PowerApps.com is now available in all regions. This article describes the updates, including the new features, and the fixes to existing functionality, which are included in this update. This version was first made available in preview on September 30, 2019, and completed worldwide rollout on October 16, 2019.
Improved capacity governance
With the introduction of the new capacity-based provisioning model in April '19, citizen developers are able to more easily provision environments they need for their applications. With this change comes the need for IT admins to be able to better plan and manage database, file, and log capacity consumption within their organization. To support this, the Power Platform Admin center will provide a new real-time view of capacity consumption (Database, File, and Log), historical trends for up to 12 months, and storage breakdowns by entity and application to help facilitate capacity planning and cross-charging to the business units that consume platform capacity.
The Power Apps Checker includes rules for canvas apps and flows
The Power Apps Checker has helped hundreds of admins and makers pinpoint potential issues in their solutions and quickly resolve them with rich documentation. That experience has been enhanced in several ways. The Power Apps Checker pulls data not only from the App Checker in Power Apps Studio but also the Flow Checker in the flow designer.
Share apps with users outside your tenant, B2B
You can invite external business partners, contractors, and third parties to run your company’s canvas apps. You can share your apps with any guest of your Azure Active Directory tenant.
You can share a canvas app with a guest as easily as you do with a co-worker. Type your guest’s email address to quickly share both the app and its data.
If a SharePoint list has been shared with a guest user, that user can also run any canvas apps that are embedded in that list.
To run standalone apps, guest users need the same license as users in your tenant.
Office 365 suite header coming to Power Apps
The Office 365 suite header is coming to powerapps.com, and Power Apps is coming to the Office 365 suite header.
The Power Platform will align with the new Office header, allowing you to access all of your Microsoft applications, notifications, and messages from a consistent header. Additionally, panels like help, notifications, and feedback will be aligned so that you always get the same experience across all of Microsoft.
We'll also take this opportunity to make improvements to existing controls that are specific to Power Apps, like the environment picker, so that they are easier to use.
Improved capacity governance for resource usage
With the introduction of the new capacities, like Per-App, flow per business process, AI units, portal logins, and portal views, we have updated the capacity reporting in the Power Platform Admin center for managing these capacities. IT admins can now see how much capacity they have purchased and have a management experience to allocate these capacities to environments. Shortly, we will be adding the ability to see the API capacity and consumption as well.
