Announcing in App notificationS for Microsoft Power Apps

In May 2022 Microsoft have announced the general availability of Power App Notifications. Keep your teams on track and notified with clever notification alerts informing recent updates, and interactivity across your Power Apps

In-app notifications enable a user to receive a notification while they are working within the web or mobile model-driven app.  Notifications can be sent from Power Automate, app logic or web service calls allowing flexibility in where notifications are triggered.

Since public preview we have improved the scalability for in-app notifications by using non-relational data tables and changing the polling approach for new notifications.  The polling approach is based on user navigations which means the notification delivery is not suitable for time-sensitive notifications.  In the future we will look to improve notification delivery time.

Model-driven apps can be enabled in-app notifications within the modern app designer.  Open the settings dialog and toggle “In-app notifications” feature to Yes under “Features”.  Depending on your release, it may still be under “Upcoming” with a preview tag while the update is rolling out.
