Power Portals as Progressive Web Applications

Power Portals as Progressive Web?

The long-awaited feature for PowerApps Portals as PWAs or Progressive Web App has finally been released in General Availability for Users by Admins, Makers, and Analysts. Portal makers can enable new or existing portals since 2016 as a PWA to allow for a better native application experience for its users. Furthermore, makers can create mobile app packages of their portals to publish them on app stores.

Let us see how we can enable PWA for an existing PowerApps Portal:

  • Once you have entered make.powerapps.com go to your environment on which the portal resides.
  • Open your portal in Edit/Designer Mode.
