With embedded canvas apps, makers can now easily create custom visual sections and layouts in their forms using the low-code, WYSIWYG canvas app designer. They can also bring in and display data from 200-plus data sources on their forms. The embedded canvas apps also provide a deep contextual integration with the host model-driven form.

Following the preview release, embedded canvas apps now include additional new capabilities that enable deeper integrations between model-driven forms and embedded canvas apps. Some of these capabilities include:

  • Trigger methods on the host model-driven form from the embedded canvas app.
  • Improved integration with the Common Data Service connector to write data, get relational data, access metadata such as field display names and more.
  • Support to display data from the integration object in canvas app form controls.
  • Support for tablet and custom screen sizes.
