What can you build using Microsoft Power Apps

| Abdullah Khan

PowerApps is a collection of apps, services and connectors and it can also serve as a data platform to build easy to customize apps for literally any business problem.

With PowerApps you can build apps that uses data stored in Microsoft’s own dataverse or another database such as SharePoint, SQL server, Microsoft 365, Dynamics 365, PostgreSQL, etc.

You can create PowerApps for end user, admins, dynamics 365 and so much more.

The ‘Power’ in PowerApps is not just in the name but because it gives you the Power to make complex things easier to build, run and manage on any device and platform with the power of cloud.

Do you want to:

  • Improve customer satisfaction
  • Make things efficient
  • Streamline process
  • Increase ROI
  • Increase productivity
  • Include customer feedback
  • Reduce the time-to-market

If your answer is ‘yes’ then get ready for this fabulous ride.

Let me show you some PowerApps use cases so you can think about how you can innovate your own way of work and get your daily tasks done more efficiently.

PowerApps use case #1. Patient satisfaction:

Imperium dynamics realized the need of a solution to improve the feedback between health providers and their patients.

That’s how we came up with the patient satisfaction solution.

It is built on top of the Microsoft power platform following different WHO and HCAPS-defined standards driven forms to collect patient feedback on hospital services.

Results can be viewed in real-time via dashboards.

This can be used to improve medical facilities and overall satisfaction.

Best thing is it can be integrated with health provider’s existing database, whether it’s dataverse, SQL or any other DB.

PowerApps use case #2. Employee Management

Did you know that you can also build seamless Employee Management apps with Power Platform?

Imperium built this app around the needs of companies who want to manage their employees’ attendance, benefits, leave requests and more.

We fully built it in PowerApps as a canvas app with following basic features:

  1. Clock-in clock-out
  2. Time entries by office location
  3. Work From Home requests
  4. Leave Management
  5. A mobile- and tablet-friendly Canvas App

The best thing is it can be used with your existing employees and they can start seeing their status right away and you can manage them through your admin interface.

PowerApps use case #3. Job hazard analysis

It’s extremely important that operations at factory, mining, construction sites and other such work places follow the safety protocols and procedures to stop and protect from any hazard that could happen in difficult work environments where labor, engineer and other human resource work with heavy machinery and hazardous raw materials.

Imperium understood how critical these applications and built this app following OSHA (Occupation Safety and Health Administration) standards.

Using JHS (Job Hazard Analysis) you can evaluate work safety protocols, generate reports, and assign tasks to employees or teams.

In a nutshell, It does the following:

  • Score-based data evaluation for OSHA reporting.
  • Real-time dashboards for Job Hazard Analysis.
  • Automated Survey Assignment process on a recurring basis with notifications.
  • Individual and bulk assignment to employee and employee groups, respectively.
  • Employee Survey Management with mobile and tablet-friendly Canvas Application.
  • Supports anonymous survey assignment and secured submissions.
  • Survey configuration with scoring rules and branching.

PowerApps use case #5. Hourly

Who doesn’t want to manage their projects more efficiently? That’s why we built hourly. With hourly employees and managers can track hours pertaining to each task and project.

Hourly offers flexible interface to report employees hours, especially for those working on more than one project or customer.

With this quick and headache-free solution, your employees can submit their work hours.

It enables managers to easily adjust billable and non-billable hours, approve timesheets, and provide feedback to employees on their submissions.
