Today I will show you how to integrate these Power Apps within your digital workspace.
What is Microsoft Power Apps?
Power Apps is part of the no- / low code platform of Microsoft. You can use Power Apps to develop applications to automate processes such as cost declarations, work clothing requests or leave requests.
Within the Power Apps platform, there are templates available to quickly create an application. Another option is to create an application from scratch. For people who do have some IT knowledge, it is easy to create links to other systems and to send data to other programs. View the prices of Microsoft Power Apps.
For whom are the Power Apps?
