ATOI365D#Office365Challenge As promised we’ll start playing with PowerApps. Today’s post will cover the basics of form editing.

Day: 259 of 365, 106 left
Tools: PowerApps
Description: PowerApps:  Basic Form Edit
Audience: End User / Power User

There are different ways of creating PowerApps. For today’s example I created a custom list in SharePoint and added the necessary columns. I will use this app to add resources I use (blogs etc.).

This is what the form looks like in SharePoint:


Once the list is created, I clicked on the PowerApps Dropdown and selected “Create an App”:


I gave it a name and clicked on Create. PowerApps opened, if you haven’t used it before it will ask you to sign in.

Change the Background:

Under the Screen Tab I inserted a new Background image on each view of the form. I had to change the Image Position to .Fill to completely fill the form with the image:


Once all the backgrounds were set, I selected every text label and changed the font colour and bold width:


I saved the app (this is where you’ll share the app as well with other people for use) and accessed it from the PowerApps app on my phone:

  1. PowerApp in my list
  2. Form before editing on my phone
  3. View List after editing on my phone
  4. Edit form on my phone


I added an item to test and it successfully published to SharePoint.


Voila!! Pretty cool Microsoft!!

Empowering People, one app at a time…

Overview of my challenge: As an absolute lover of all things Microsoft, I’ve decided to undertake the challenge, of writing a blog every single day, for the next 365 days. Crazy, I know. And I’ll try my best, but if I cannot find something good to say about Office 365 and the Tools it includes for 365 days, I’m changing my profession. So let’s write this epic tale of “Around the Office in 365 Days”. My ode to Microsoft Office 365.
Keep in mind that these tips and tricks do not only apply to Office 365 – but where applicable, to the overall Microsoft Office Suite and SharePoint.
