Ever been offline or off the grid with no Internet/WIFI access but want to send data to your database? In this post I’ll show you how to use Power Apps to create a data-driven application that might occasionally be disconnected from the network or be offline. With this application you can cache locally on a phone and when it receives internet access again, it will automatically send that data to the database.
Be sure to watch my video where I’ll demo how to build this app and a simulation of how it works. But here’s a breakdown:
This works great for companies that may be out in a remote part of the world or for someone who works on an airplane and they want to do all their flight paperwork in the air and once landed, that data will be streamed up. As long as you have that application open then you can be assured that the data you input while offline will be sent to the database once you’re back online again.
Want to learn more Power Apps? Our On-Demand Learning platform contains Power Apps courses, as well as courses covering all the tools in the Power Platform – as part of our 55+ course catalog covering Business Intelligence, Data Analytics, Azure and more. If you need apps built for you, we can also help with that. With our Shared Development offering we’ll set you up with a developer for the time you need at a fraction of the cost of hiring a full-time developer. Click below to learn more.
