Access Services - PowerApps
What about Microsoft’s new PowerApps?
It looks like Microsoft has finally created a tool that can work side by side with Access for creating mobile applications to interact with your data! But there are some catches, so PowerApps aren’t going to blow Microsoft Access out of the water any time soon, in our opinion. First, you have to have an Office 365, Microsoft 365 or PowerApps subscription and that means recurring monthly fees. Second, as of this writing PowerApps only work with users within your organization that have been assigned one of the aforementioned subscriptions. If you are already subscribed to one of the Microsoft monthly services that includes PowerApps and all your database users are within your organization this can be a great fit. PowerApps works best for creating mobile apps for iOS and Android that allow users to interact with your data. So, if that’s the problem you are looking to solve and you meet the rest of the criteria, please reach out to WSI today to find out about getting a PowerApp built for your organization.
As is the case with Access, PowerApps is an environment that is designed for power users, not just professional programmers to create their own databases! Feel free to as much as you can within your time constraints on your own. When you get stuck or your time becomes too valuable to spend it developing Access databases or PowerApps contact WSI!
