Model-driven apps Developer Guide

Model-driven apps are primarily a no-code or low-code component focused approach to app development. The value developers can provide is by extending the application. Before you start writing code, begin with learning how to build model-driven apps and what options can be applied without code.


Model-driven apps connect to Microsoft Dataverse. For information about how developers can add value at the service level, see Dataverse Developer Overview.
