Announcing the general availability of the Power Apps modern app designer

We are excited to announce the general availability of the modern app designer, enabling a seamless, intuitive way to build robust model-driven apps with Dataverse grids, forms, and custom pages with just a few clicks. The modern app designer is now the default designer for model-driven apps and is at full feature parity with the classic designer. The modern app designer has a live preview where you can directly interact with content of the app, resize to see the app on different screen sizes, add custom pages, and many more!

The preview of the modern app designer was announced around June of 2021. Since then, we’ve added many new features, as well as improved the current experience based on feedback received from the community. We’ve made lots of improvements and will continue to do so after general availability to make the designer the best that it can be. New features added in the modern app designer include the ability to add custom pages, business process flows, Power BI dashboards, interactive dashboards, new areas, URLs/web resources as a subarea, customize sitemap icons, locales, app tile icon, and manage chart views.

The modern app designer is the foundation for many more exciting features in the app authoring space. Therefore, we want your feedback! Let us know your thoughts and suggestions in the community, and please visit our documentation for more information.

Happy building!
