Behavior Settings

Recently many new environment settings have been introduced to the Power Apps admin center. Using these settings, it is possible to change many different options within your Power Platform. These settings will affect your daily life as a Power Apps developer.

In this post I will give a brief overview of the new settings that have arrived.

Product Settings - Environment settings in Power Apps

Product Settings

In the Product Settings section you can find settings grouped in 4 categories.

  • Behavior
  • Features
  • Languages
  • Privacy + Security

Behavior Settings

Behavior settings is the first group of product settings. One of the options I’ve found interesting is the option to disable the autosave.

Behavior in Product Settings

For a detailed overview of the behavior settings please look at the behavior documentation.

Features settings

If you liked the Behavior settings then you might really be blown away when you look at the features settings

Features in Power Apps

Skype presence is just one of those options. Although it is a bit weird that this isn’t Microsoft teams presence! On top of this there are search settings and auditing features that can be enabled.

And also son’t forget to have a look at the Bing Maps integration options.

For more information on these features please have a look at the features documentation. Also don’t forget to follow my blog as I’m planning to go through these features in more detail soon.

Privacy and Security Settings

In the Privacy and Security settings you can find options for Privacy statements, session expiry, attachment blocking and inactivity timeouts.

Privacy and Security settings

All important settings to have available. The Privacy and Security settings page will supply to details on these settings.

With all these settings Microsoft is moving more and more away from the old Dynamics CRM UI. The Common Data Service environment is more and more becoming something that offers the full functionality without the need for an administrator to use the odl UI. This is a great step forward. Only the language settings is currently still using the old UI.

As shown below all the settings that still use the old UI have been marked with a small symbol. Hopefully these options will soon all become natively available within the Power Platform.
