Model-Driven Power Apps Applications

Model-driven app design is a method that focuses on adding elements to tables using an app designer tool, such as forms, views, charts, and dashboards. Relationships also link tables together in a way that makes it possible to navigate between them and guarantees that data is not duplicated needlessly.

You may create simple or extremely complicated apps with the app designer with little or no coding.

Process driven apps

Process-driven apps that are data-dense and make it simple for users to switch between related records are particularly well suited for model-driven apps. A model-driven app is an excellent option, for instance, if you're creating one to handle a complicated process like onboarding new employees, managing a sales process, or member connections in a company like a bank.

Data modeling

Even though they are referred to as model-driven apps, it is frequently simpler to conceive of them as data model-driven apps. This is due to the fact that you cannot develop model-driven software without a data model stored within Microsoft Dataverse.

User experience

From the user's perspective, all model-driven apps provide a comparable experience that is available to a wide range of users and independent of the device being used. The encounter is comparable to the illustration below.

Three tables (challenges, ideas, and team projects) are included in the software, along with a dashboard and other charts and views. Using the left pane or the dashboard, users can switch between the tables.


  • Due to rich component-focused no-code designers, the construction process is quite quick once the data model and relationships have been established.
  • Using solutions, and moving apps between development, test, and production environments is kind of simple.
  • The user interface of apps is the same on all platforms, including desktop and mobile.
  • The apps are responsive and easily accessible.

What’s the difference?

Log into the Power Apps portal.

From the left pane, choose Model-driven.

 Create the Name

After that, open the created Model-driven.

You can check the details and you can able to modify the template view, design, and data connection.
