Power Apps per app plan

Power Apps per app plan allows individual users to run 2 applications on a single portal for a specific business scenario based on the full capabilities of Power Apps. This plan provides an easy way for users to get started with Power Apps before broader scale adoption. These are available to purchase from the Office admin center and you can allocate add-ons in the Capacity area in the Power Platform Admin center. More information: Capacity add-ons

Important

Although, Power Apps per app plans appear in the Microsoft 365 admin center, you shouldn’t attempt to assign them to users there. Power Apps per app plans must be allocated to an environment by an admin in Power Platform Admin center (https://admin.powerplatform.microsoft.com).

After per app plans are allocated to an environment, they are assigned when apps are shared with end users in the environment.

Allocate per app plans

After purchase, you can allocate per app plans to the environments as required.

In the Power Platform Admin center, select Analytics > Capacity in the left-side navigation pane. If your organization has purchased add-ons that includes per app plans, an Add-ons tile appears on the Capacity screen displaying summary information about the capacity add-ons that your organization has.

Add-on tile

To allocate add-ons, select Manage. For detailed information, see Allocate or change capacity in an environment.

Note

As an admin, you can restrict who can allocate add-on capacity to environments. More information: Control who can allocate add-on capacity

Set up app to use per app plans

After an admin allocates Power Apps per app plan to an environment, they're assigned to unlicensed users when an app in that environment is shared with them.

Follow these steps to turn off assigning per app plans for users when an app is shared with them:

  1. Choose the app in Power Apps.

  2. Select Settings.

    App settings

  3. Under Pass assignment, change the Auto assign per app passes toggle to No. The Auto assign per app passes toggle appears in all app setting.

Important

Turning off the per app plan is currently available only for canvas apps. Model-driven apps and portals will have this ability in the future.
