Powerapps are powerful applications that you can build without development skills. Creating basic applications without being able to write code is perfectly possible.

This can also possibly be offered on mobile devices so that people on the road can consult and edit customer lists or personnel files.

Hi, I want to transfer MS Access. Things that are simple in Access turn out to be very difficult or even impossible with PowerApps. Eg if you work with Id's in your related tables and then base a pick list from another table on that. Very simple and frequently used in Access but not yet found how to do that with the table converted to a sharepoint list in PowerApps. You could convert the field to a choice field in sharepoint. This will create new Id's in the background starting from 0. However, the values will still not match. We are talking about thousands of records. Thereby Access is still used with the linked sp lists. I would also have to redesign the Access application. PowerApps quickly becomes an annoyance like this. Good for something small, for someone used to Excel formulas.
