As part of my Common Data Services series I’m looking at the operations available in the Common Data Service connector in Power Apps.

New UX

Recently a new UX has been released and your Entities within your current environment are offered to you as soon as you create a new app in Power Apps.

PowerApps CDS

As you click on the entities that you want to use, they will become available in your app. It can’t be made much easier

Accounts Selected

Then when you add your Gallery the available entities are offered to you.

Then in your gallery you can filter by the views that you specified on your entity.

Filter By View
