Power Apps Ideas: New enhancements and increased capabilities

After we announced public preview of Power Apps Ideas, including writing Power Fx formulas with natural language and generating formulas from examples, we continued tuning the design and improving our AI model to make Ideas work better for you. Today, we’re happy to share some of the latest updates on Ideas with you. Transforming natural language to formulas Expanded support for more data sources – Data source connections are no longer limited to Dataverse; you can now use Power Apps Ideas with galleries and data tables connected to other data sources, such as Sharepoint and Excel. Supporting more ways to filter a data table – More data querying scenarios are supported including filter by Choice columns, Yes/No columns. Now you can try active ‘Contacts’ in Ideas to filter by Contact status. Improved understanding of natural language – In our efforts to provide an experience with language that really is “natural”, we made significant improvements to our AI model to make it smarter and understand more natural input. For example, instead of typing ‘Contacts’ whose ‘Full Name’ starts with “Yvonne”, you can simply type Full Name starts with Yvonne to get the same formula. Enhanced UI for formula suggestions – The formula suggestions are now displayed in cards, and there is a greater focus on the natural language description of what the formula is doing, so it will be easier for makers to review and understand the results. Programming by example Increased region and language availability – Programming by example has rolled out to all the Power Apps regions and languages so more makers can benefit from it. Improved formula results – We made significant improvements in our AI model to make the resulting formula suggestions less complex while still providing the same functionality. Simplifying complicated formulas not only makes it easier to understand and maintain the formula, but also significantly enhances performance. What’s next for Ideas Transforming natural language to formulas: Continue to add support of more scenarios including generating formulas to manipulate content of a label, changing color and visibility based on conditions, support filter by lookup columns. Continue to enhance the model so it can better understand natural language queries and provide more accurate suggestions. Improve the usability and discoverability of Ideas so it will become more handy and easier to find. Programming by example: Improve the model quality so it can generate accurate yet simple formulas. Improve the usability of Train with examples, so when the suggested formula doesn’t meet your needs, you can easily tune the results by providing additional examples.

Visualize data in model-driven apps with Power BI (preview)

Today, we are announcing the availability of Power BI quick reports in model-driven apps in preview. This update combines the capabilities of Power Apps, Power BI and Dataverse in a seamless way to help you visualize and understand your data – with one click. Power BI quick reports add to the flexibility of data visualization options already available in Power Apps. While charts and custom components allow you to create specific, custom visualizations in Power Apps, Power BI quick reports generate a report automatically based on the page context, combined with an understanding of underlying data types, with no prior set up required. Generate insights in Power Apps without losing context of your work To get started, simply navigate to a table’s home page grid in a model-driven app and select Visualize this view command at the top of the page. This button generates a Power BI report based on the underlying view. Any additional filters or column modifications on top of the view are also automatically added to the report to transfer that context from data to visualization. There are several options available to personalize this visualization to help you visualize the data in ways that are meaningful to you. You can close the dialog to go back to the view page to continue your work in the model-driven app from where you left. Enable Power BI quick report visualization in a model-driven app You can enable this capability for a model-driven app through the app’s settings area, available in the modern app designer in preview. Enabling this capability will display Visualize this view command on the grid pages of the tables in the model-driven app. Review documentation to learn more about this capability and the options available to interact with the Power BI visual.
