Microsoft has released many new features and enhancements for PowerApps since June 2018, part of this blog we will cover three new functions introduced which I believe would be mostly used.
In my blog, I mentioned how to generate unique GUID using Azure function which requires us to create an azure function, a custom connector and connection between two. Microsoft has now introduced a new function GUID() which will generate unique GUID every time it is invoked or convert passed string into GUID.
For more details, please refer here.
Microsoft mainly focused on quality, performance in last few releases. One of major improvement in performance is achieved by enabling users to execute multiple operations concurrently instead of sequentially using Concurrent function. In scenarios where we need to load multiple collections or to render data in multiple controls when app starts, this function is very useful.
For more details please refer here.
Microsoft has repurposed ShowError function which was used to display error messages only to now display all types of messages by renaming it to Notify function. Notify function can be used to display success, error, warning, information type messages based on Notification type passed as parameter.
Important Note: Notify function can be used with behavior formulas only which means you can use it with properties which change app behavior by triggering series of actions. For example: You can use Notify on OnSelect of button or on OnChange of dropdown but not in Text property of label.
Notify(“This is test message”, Success)
