    Hi,

    Can Canvas App be launched from the sitemap? I am wondering it is part of the solution how the CRM user can have access to it?
    Unlike the model driven app where user can use sitemap to access it.

    I am trying to replace existing Dialog(Soon be deprecated) with Canvas app.

    Thanks

    Regards

    It should be possible. You should use the Ribbon Workbench to add navigation on your form to a URL for your app. Here is an article on how to get the URL to your app:https://powerapps.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/powerapps-deep-linking/

    Depending on the scenario, you may be able to embed it on the form that is hosting the dialog?

    Hey Jeebo,

    Greg is spot on. We now have the ability to embed the canvas app right within a model driven form allowing the user to have the best of both worlds and a seamless UI experience between the two. Trying to link to it in the sitemap will be a much less pleasurable experience. Thanks!

    Hello Doug

    Just tried to follow the steps to embed an existing canvas app to a model driven app, but it looks like it's only possible to create a new canvas app, not embed an existing one. Or am I missing something?

    Thanks

    Deborah

    Are you using the original app id in the form's custom canvas app control?

    Thanks Greg\Doug

    I was able to embed canvas app in Model driven form but the canvas app control fonts seems bigger to me. is there anyway we can reduce the size of the controls of canvas app when embed in model driven forms?

    Thanks

    Regards
