About This Course

Canvas apps are highly customizable apps built in Power Apps to be run on phones and tablets. In this course, you’ll learn how to create one.

You’ll build the screens of your app by assembling the objects on the Power Apps canvas, without needing to write any code at all. You’ll then build the functionality of your app using a few formulas that are no more difficult than Excel formulas.

By the end of this course, you’ll have a good understanding of canvas apps and be able to build functional canvas apps using Power Apps.
