What is PowerApps Portals?

[This topic is pre-release documentation and is subject to change.]

Important

  • Preview features aren’t meant for production use and may have restricted functionality. These features are available before an official release so that customers can get early access and provide feedback.

  • Preview features have limited support by Microsoft Support and may be available only in selected geographic areas.

PowerApps makers can now create a powerful new type of experience: external-facing websites that allow users outside their organizations to sign in with a wide variety of identities, create and view data in Common Data Service, or even browse content anonymously. The full capabilities of Dynamics 365 Portal, previously offered only as an add-on to Dynamics 365 applications, are now available completely standalone inside of PowerApps.

These capabilities feature a revamped end-to-end experience for makers to quickly create a website and customize it with pages, layout, and content. Makers can reuse page designs through templates, add forms and views to display key data from Common Data Service, and publish to users.

Note

Since PowerApps Portals is in preview, certain experiences might have known issues. These issues are mentioned in the Known issues section later in this document.
