Released version 3.18101

Introduction

Version 3.18101 for PowerApps Studio and PowerApps Mobile 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 October 5, 2018, and completed worldwide rollout on October 10, 2018.

Enhanced help and support for admins

With the Help & Support experience in the Power Platform admin center, not only can admins escalate and engage with customer support more easily but also, with in-line self-help, admins have become even more successful at diagnosing and resolving solutions on their own.

Improved experience for building model-driven apps

App makers can more easily compose and test model-driven apps in the designer. The navigation and configuration was simplified to support both Web and Unified Interface. Editing app components is easier through quicker access to deep links. After saving and publishing changes, makers can run the app directly from the designer to quickly test the changes.

Increased performance for globally distributed Common Data Service for Apps enterprises

End users across many geographies and network latencies see consistent, fast performance regardless of their location with respect to the data center. Fewer server trips are required when a page definition is initially loaded, and more page definitions are cached after the initial load, which makes subsequent loads faster.
