Do you have a PowerApps screen that's sluggish? A loading image can help with your user satisfaction. I recently created an app for our HR department in this series and there were screens where SharePoint was sluggish, so users would interpret that as nothing was happening. What can you do to fix this? In this post, I’ll show you how to create a loading spinner to give your users the perception that something IS happening inside the app.
Sure, we get those loading ants marching across the screen but at times users need a bit more of an obvious punch to show that something is indeed happening. There are two techniques to make this happen, an automated method and another where you have more control and can decide when you want to show the loading image.
Technique One – a generic automated way:
Technique Two – manually set a spinner for more control over the end user experience:
That’s how simple it is to add a loading spinner to your application and it’s great to have the option to customize your spinner and have complete control over how you want to use it.
