Power Apps introduction

This module introduces Power Apps, what you can do with Power Apps and how Power Apps fits with the rest of the Power Platform.

The Power Apps Studio

This module starts with an explanation on how to launch and use the Power Apps studio for creating, editing and running apps. There is also a section on the other ways that apps can be run by users. The module will also look at how apps can be saved, published and shared with other users as well as investigating the versioning system of Power Apps. The three main ways of creating apps are introduced and there is an exercise where learners will create, save and publish an app by using the Power Apps Copilot.

Screens, controls and navigation

In this module learners will examine the core building blocks of Power Apps, namely Screens and Controls. As part of this the naming of these objects and a discussion on naming conventions will be covered. This module will also look at setting properties including the use of relative and linked properties. There will also be an examination of the properties that can be used to invoke change.


The module will introduce learners to the use of functions in Power Apps and will focus on commonly used functions including Navigate, Text and Value as well as exploring how multiple functions can be used together. On this course the learner will be introduced to 16 functions.

Modern Styling

This module introduces the current Microsoft design philosophy for Power Apps by introducing the learner to Vertical and Horizontal containers.


In this module, learners will be introduced to data and tables including data sources and records. The main ways of displaying multiple records are introduced, namely the table and gallery controls. The use of searching and the sum function within data tables is also introduced.

Variables and Named Formulas

In this module, learners will be introduced to both variables and Named Formulas. Variables allow the app maker to store information that can be used else where in their app. Named Formulas allow the maker to store more complex expressions built using functions that can be evaluated as necessary in their app.


This module of this course looks at using forms to view and edit individual records from the data sources. The module also introduces data cards, the sub-components of forms and shows their importance when creating apps. Finally, the functions used with forms to create and update records are introduced. Although not part of a form, the techniques to delete records from data sources are also covered in this module.

Licensing and data sources

This module talks about the different licencing levels available while working with Power Apps. It then goes on to examine four common data sources (Excel, SharePoint, SQL and Dataverse) and provides a comparison of their advantages and disadvantages when using them.

Power Apps Copilot

The Copilot module gives learners an opportunity to explore how Copilot can help when working with Power Apps. It will also highlight some of the shortcomings that are currently present in the Power Apps Copilot.

Practical Application Exercise (Optional)

This optional module will be used for any learners that have completed the rest of the course with time to spare. It is an opportunity for learners to create a new app from scratch and apply the lessons that have been taught in the course. If there is not time to complete this task during the course, learners will have access to the materials necessary to complete it afterwards.
