Business value

App makers don't have to rely on code components for simple UX components to get the benefits of custom extensibility, application lifecycle management (ALM), and reuse. The components and component libraries feature in canvas apps provide a much faster and simpler way not only to build custom UX but also to have centralized control on upgrade, update, and solution support with ALM capabilities.

Feature details

The components and component libraries feature in canvas apps can be used to build reusable and centrally managed low-code UX components. Besides investments in reliability and fundamentals, this release will add component ALM support. Users will have the ability to package and ship component libraries and applications using standard Microsoft Dataverse solutions. Component libraries will also add support for new Fluent controls and Power Apps component framework code components for custom pages.
