For quite a while, the in-app notifications feature was in preview mode within Power Apps. Now, it’s a full-fledged component of Power Apps and allows customizers the ability to work with the Notification table within the Dataverse. Records on this table can be displayed to app users as notifications from a dedicated notification area within a model-driven app. These notifications can be popped on a user’s screen as well, and customizers have some degree of control over the notification icons and expiry duration.
As with all Dataverse tables, customizers can leverage the Notification table in their Power Automate flows to create automations around this incredible Power Apps feature. There are, however, certain considerations that need to be taken into account when working with in-app notifications as they relate to Power Automate.
Enabling in-app notifications
Notifications are app-specific, meaning that they can be turned on or off on each model-driven app present in Power Apps. To turn this feature on or off, locate the app within a solution. Then, edit the app in the app designer. Next, click Settings. Finally, click Features, then select the in-app notifications toggle. Note that you will need to save and publish your app for the changes to take effect.
After in-app notifications have been saved and the app published, the Notifications area (bell icon) will be visible on the app in the upper right corner.
