Overall Satisfaction with PowerApps

PowerApps was primarily used to create basic user Interfaces and to guide workflows so that less technically savvy employees were not having to manually interact with sharepoint lists.
  • Fetching data from Sharepoint.
  • Manipulating items in the Dataverse (MS's SQL thing).
  • Guided user interactions.
  • The editor takes Forever to load a full project for editing. for more complex projects, I have to open it first thing in the morning, go make a coffee, handle all of my new emails, take a coffee break, then come back and pray its ready to use
  • Formulas - I'm not sure why it seems to require the sacrifice of a live chicken to get PowerApps to accept a complex formula that is syntax-correct, but it seems to help!
  • Field reference. if you are mapping to data in a SharePoint list or dataverse, being able to grab the correct fields is akin to Sorcery.
  • Sharepoint list integration.
  • Dataverse integration.
  • Included in our Microsoft Contract.
  • PowerApps had a positive ROI and enabled us to move Fast when rolling out the project. it helped to restrict who could access/edit what and gave us a good audit trail.

Do you think Power Apps delivers good value for the price?


Are you happy with Power Apps's feature set?


Did Power Apps live up to sales and marketing promises?


Did implementation of Power Apps go as expected?


Would you buy Power Apps again?


Powerapps is the lesser of 2 evils. It lets to restrict what people can see and how they can interact with it, but it has the potential to be a bit of a dragon when trying to implement it in more-complex workflows.
