Next steps

Known limitations of the preview release

  1. Undo or redo a change.

    You can undo and redo changes automatically in PowerApps Studio for Windows but not in a browser.

  2. Create a connection.

    To create a connection to a data source that requires service authentication, use powerapps.com, and then add the connection to an app in PowerApps Studio for web.

  3. Edit and save an app locally.

    For best results, use PowerApps Studio for Windows to edit and save apps locally. In a browser, you can't save changes to a local app, or you must save a new file instead of replacing the file that you opened.

  4. Use signal functions.

    Acceleration and Compass functions return accurate values in a published app, but those functions return zero values as you create or modify an app in a browser.

  5. Export and import data.

    You can export and import data in a published app but not as you create or modify an app in a browser.

  6. Add or modify a flow.

    You can add or modify a flow in PowerApps Studio for Windows but not in a browser.

  7. Copy a control across two sessions.

    You can't copy controls from one session of PowerApps Studio for web to another session of PowerApps Studio for web.
