How Model-Driven Power Apps work?
Model-Driven power apps are good at handling daily actions performed by the users for data interaction. You do not have to write even a single line of code or use any formulas to create these apps. Model-driven apps can be accessed in a web browser, mobile devices, and in Outlook.
Model-driven power apps are data-centric and have uniform navigation, data interaction, and tools with which users can easily work on data irrespective of the data entity. The views and detail screens are populated based on the data structure. Using those views and form designers, users can customize the user experience for that specific app staying within the available limits of views and forms. It saves time to build a new application ensuring consistent user experience between data and other model-driven apps.
If new entitles are updated in the data models, they automatically get basic forms and views. It allows users to list, view, and modify data with minimal effort without writing a single line of code.
When a user creates a CDS entity, the forms, views, APIs automatically get created. They exist even if a user fails to create a model-driven app for other users. However, while creating a model-driven app design, users need to reference one or more entities and select appropriate forms and views to add to it. What components will be visible to the user solely depends on the app. Besides, multiple model-driven power apps might reference the same forms and views to create a different user experience.
Model-driven power app use cases:
- To design businesses processes and workflows
- To manage opportunities.
- To offer excellent customer service management.
- To manage events.
- To provide end-to-end solutions.
