  1. Introduction to PowerApps
  2. Traditionally building customised solutions for a business involved using a coding language to build an application from scratch. Typically, these solutions could often only be used within the business, making external use of the application a large hurdle to overcome. With PowerApps we can now not only easily build solutions, but we can also share them with users in our business and deploy them for use in just seconds. This module will provide an overview the features of PowerApps, its benefits to a business and the variety of ways you can build and access your apps on different devices.
