Use deep links with Power Apps mobile

Deep links let users move from one application to another on computers and mobile devices. Simple examples include a mobile app deep-linking to Facebook to sign in, an email address deep-linking to a mail app to compose a message, or a website deep-linking to an app store to download a related mobile app.

You can open an entityrecord or an entitylist view in Power Apps mobile by using deep-link URLs from other apps. When you follow the link from an external app, the target element opens in Power Apps mobile

If you're already signed in to your instance in the app, the target record is displayed when you follow the link from an external app. Otherwise, you're prompted to sign in to your instance in the mobile app; after you're signed in, the target element is displayed. You must have Power Apps mobile installed on your mobile device to use this feature.
