Solution support for canvas apps and flows has several key improvements over the October preview. You can track dependencies and, when a managed solution is uninstalled, remove apps.

Other improvements include:

  • Adding canvas apps and flows to a solution even if they weren't created in a solution.
  • PowerShell cmdlets are available to add canvas apps and flows to solutions.
  • When a managed solution is uninstalled, canvas apps and flows are deleted.
  • Canvas apps are reformatted for readability in source control.
  • PowerApps developer tooling supports canvas apps and flows.
  • Flows using the Common Data Service connector are supported in solutions.
  • Canvas apps with flows are supported within solutions.
  • Button-triggered flows from within model-driven apps are supported.

In addition, flows in solutions are easier to discover and edit. They are located under Team Flows and don't need to be turned off before editing.
