Released version 18.24

Introduction

Version 18.24 for Web.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 December 5, 2018, and completed worldwide rollout on December 5, 2018.

Build model-driven apps of higher quality with Solution checker

Solution checker promotes higher-quality model-driven apps by helping app makers follow best practices when they customize and extend the PowerApps platform. By running the checker, app makers can answer questions such as these:

  • What areas of my PowerApps implementation pose a performance or reliability risk?
  • Am I using the PowerApps extensibility architecture and provided APIs appropriately?
  • What APIs will be deprecated in the next major release of PowerApps?

App makers can access an actionable scorecard that lists top solution issues. For each issue identified, the scorecard points to specific occurrences within the code or customizations where improvements may be required. Most importantly, app makers can discover how to implement these improvements by following detailed guidance.

Solution checker is available in all worldwide regions, with the exception of Sovereign Cloud regions. You can find more information about how to run a solution check on the PowerApps blog post or the documentation.

Model-driven view designer enhancements

An improved view designer within PowerApps will allow app customizers to see a live preview as they apply advanced filtering and sorting logic. Additionally, we are adding simplified sorting and sorting via the column headers like SharePoint and Excel to make it faster to get the view you want.
