Edit a canvas app in Power Apps

Edit any canvas app that you created, or for which you have Co-owner permission. You can edit an app in Power Apps Studio.

If you try to edit an app that's open for editing elsewhere, a message tells you whether you already have it open or another user does.

Collaborate on an app

An app can be shared with others. Any Co-owner for an app can edit it. Consider the following scenarios when collaborating over an app.

Edit an app already being edited

Only one user can edit an app at a time.

If you try to edit an app that someone else is already editing, you'll see the following message.

App open by another user

You can't continue until the other user closes the app, or that user's session times out.

Edit an app across multiple sessions

Consider that you already have an app open for editing. And then, you try to open the app for editing on another device, or in another browser window. In that case, you'll see the following message.

App already open for editing by same user

You can override the previous session, but you might lose any changes that you haven't saved.
