Build apps as a team with live coauthoring

Today, we are thrilled to announce the much-anticipated Canvas Coauthoring experience is entering Preview and is now available for the public worldwide, including sovereign clouds. Coauthoring will bring a new level of collaboration and productivity to Power Apps developers.

Accelerate collaboration and productivity  

Gone are the days of waiting for one person to finish their edits before you can jump in! Now, multiple makers can edit a canvas app simultaneously in the same editing session. Coauthors will be able to see their own and colleagues’ changes compiled into a running app in real-time. Similar to Office-style collaboration, you will be able to see your teammates’ real-time presence via adorners in the command bar, tree view, and most importantly, authoring canvas so you will know exactly where and what your colleagues are working on in the app.  

Coauthoring allows multiple makers to work on different parts of a canvas app at the same time, speeding up the development process. This is dramatically faster than traditional development cycles of merging and compiling local changes that the previous solo editor experience allowed. This is also a major improvement for current Power Apps development teams, removing the need to divide efforts or consolidate changes from multiple app instances. We believe this will accelerate your app development cycles and we can’t wait to hear the amount of time and effort Coauthoring has saved your fusion teams! 

This is the latest in our collaboration updates, including Commenting and Coauthoring for Model Driven apps to drive collaboration and increase productivity for Power Apps developers.

How to start working with other developers

During Preview, Canvas Coauthoring will be off-by-default. To enable this experience, makers will need to toggle on the Coauthoring setting in the app they would like to coauthor in by going to Settings > Updates > Preview.   

The inital preview includes some limitations, documented here. As we build towards General Availability, you can expect fewer limitations and we would love your feedback on which features we should include next in our Coauthoring journey.  

Get started now 

We can’t wait for you to try Canvas Coauthoring while in the Preview stage. Your feedback will be instrumental in shaping the future of this feature as we journey towards GA. Please visit our documentation to learn more details about this experience.
