Better together: introducing Custom Pages and the Modern App Designer

Today at the Microsoft Business Applications Summit, we’re showing off a big step forward for the unification of the platform. We’re sharing a first look at how customers like Office Depot will be able to bring together canvas and model-driven pages into a single, cohesive application that’s highly tailored to the needs of end users.

How? With two significant new capabilities:

Custom Pages, backed by the full flexibility of the Power Apps canvas to craft pixel-perfect UX, connect to over 400 data sources, and leverage Power Fx for approachable low-code logic, will now be able to embed seamlessly within model-driven applications. The result is a ready-for-enterprise app that can fluidly combine grids and forms over Microsoft Dataverse with completely tailored custom screens:

What’s more, makers can build these unified experiences with the new Modern App Designer. Assembling a fully responsive application backed by Dataverse takes just a few clicks. Drop in robust, declaratively-generated grids and forms simply by selecting a table. Preview the running app live in the designer, and craft custom pages right inline.

All of this is on its way to land in production regions next month — stay tuned for deeper dives and hands on demos!
