As you know, I am a big fan of Power Apps and the ability to embed them in the Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations (D365F&O) user interface.
In this blog post I am going to show how you can embed a Power Apps app as a tile in the dashboard.
The following screenshot is a fairly normal dashboard for a user working in production.
In this example, I have created a Power Apps app that allows users to create asset maintenance requests from outside Dynamics 365 Supply Chain Management (D365SCM).
This is what the app looks like.
The app is designed for a tablet, but in this example, the production user quite likes the app and would like to use it directly from the D365F&O user interface – specifically in the dashboard.
To start the process, the user right-clicks in a blank part of the dashboard and selects Personalize: TilePageContainer as shown below.
This brings up the personalisation dialogue for the dashboard as shown here.
To add the app to the dashboard, the user must now select + Add a page.
This brings up the following dialogue where the user can select from three options.
In this case the user selects the Power Apps option.
A new dialogue allows the user to give the tile a name and enter the app ID.
The App ID GUID can be found on the Details page for the Power Apps app.
When the user clicks OK, the app is added to the dashboard as shown below.
When the user clicks on the tile, the Asset Maintenance Request app is opened within the D365F&O context.
I hope this small example shows how easy it is to enrich the D365F&O user experience with Power Apps apps.
