PowerApps in CRM 2016 (Microsoft Dynamics 365)

Let us quickly create a PowerApp that allows a user to create Contact record inside CRM (using Microsoft Flow).

  • Login to PowerApps with Office 365 Account

https://web.powerapps.com/home

  • Click on New app

  • Let us use PowerApps studio for Windows here (much easier to use then PowerApps for web)

  • Select a Blank App (Phone Layout)

  • Insert Text Box, Text Box Input and Button controls and apply Theme

  • Select Add to CRM button and select Flow in Action menu to connect with the flow.

  • Create a new Flow

  • Search for PowerApps

  • Select Add an action

  • Select “Create new a record” Action and select Contacts in Entity Name.
  • For Last Name field, click on “Ask in PowerApps” which will add a new field to be mapped inside PowerApps

  • Do same for mobile phone field

  • Click on Create flow to create the flow

  • Now back in PowerApps, select the newly created flow.

  • Specify formula to map the fields

  • Run the application

  • Specify the values for Last Name and mobile number and click on Add to CRM button.

  • This creates the contact record in CRM using the Flow defined.

  • We can save the app in cloud and the share it with the other users inside the org.

  • Click on Share (Enter name or email addresses of the users with whom we’d like to share the app)

  • App being published

  • Once Published, it would be available to the other users.

Hope it helps..
