Announcing General Availability of Power Apps maker welcome content

Headshot of article author Hazim SharafelDin

We are excited to announce that Power Apps maker welcome content feature, which can be configured by Power Platfrom admins, is now Generally Available.

Power Platform admins always want to ensure that both current and new users of Microsoft Power Apps can access the resources they need to easily and productively use Power Platform. In the past, admins used welcome emails, made wikis, or established internal portals to assist makers with their learning journey and to help them have a good start.

With the maker welcome content feature, admins can easily customize the welcome content that Power Apps maker portal users see when they first sign in to stay updated on important messages, such as security policies, knowledge bases, the environment’s purpose, and support information that makers need to address their use cases and succeed.

To use this feature, Managed Environments must be enabled. The settings panel for Managed Environments gives you the ability to customize Markdown content and define a URL for the welcome content:

Once a welcome message is set up, makers will see a modal pop up in the maker portal when they enter an environment where this feature is enabled.

Makers can choose not to see this again, and will be able to access it on the Learn page at any time.
Any updates admins make to the content will override the “do not see this again” checkbox and show the updated modal to makers. Because of this behavior, admins can also use the maker welcome content as a “push notification” system. Organizations can use it to provide updated information on policies, prompts to fill out surveys, or information on popular apps. The possibilities are endless!

What’s next?

We are excited to expand the maker welcome content feature to cover the other products in the Power Platform family (e.g., Power Automate, Copilot Studio, and Power Pages). Keep an eye out for more news about this !
