3 Types of Power Apps

Canvas App

The Empty App

With a canvas app, you design and create a business app on a “white canvas” in Power Apps Studio. You design the app by selecting elements and placing them using drag-and-drop. You can integrate a variety of control functions such as cameras or location detection.

It is not necessary to write code in a conventional programming language such as C#. This process in the App Designer feels like creating PowerPoint slides. You can also create expressions, for example to specify logic and work with data, just like in Excel. You are therefore completely responsible for the layout.

Model-Controlled App

About a Data Model

The model-driven apps start with your data model: Forms, views and other components are modeled based on the data from your core business and your processes in Common Data Service.

Model-driven apps automatically generate powerful user interfaces that can be used across all devices. In contrast to the development of canvas apps, where the designer has full control over the app layout, with model-driven apps a large part of the layout is determined by the components that you add to the app.

Portal Apps

Portals

With the Portals Apps, you can set up portal websites with individual content and use various sources (e.g., Power BI and Power Automate). An individual look & feel or layout of the respective brand can also be taken into account.

Users can be authenticated or anonymous – you decide. You can define the authentication requirements individually.
