{No Code Way} Pre-Populate Date field to Current date in PowerApps portal Entity form

In one of my recent PowerApps portal projects there was a requirement to set the current date on one of the sign up pages. As I researched about it, I found articles using scripts to achieve this requirement. The problem with using scripts in such cases is not considering the fact that Client is investing time and money in a low code/no code platform.

Here are the steps you need to follow to do it in a no code way.

Step 1: Locate the Entity Form Metadata under Entity form and click on New Entity Form Metadata:

Step 2: Fill the Entity Form Metadata as below:

clip_image004

clip_image006

Active this Entity Form Metadata.

In this way, we are able to utilize the platform in a truly No code way.

Result below from PowerApps Portal page:

What is the learning: Try to utilize low code way wherever possible.

Hope it helps and Power 365ing as usual!

{Quick Tip} Increasing height of Web resource rendered in a PowerApp Portal

In one of our recent projects, there was a requirement to put a Web resource which is available on Contact entity form and need to be display some static information for Membership sign up.

To our surprise, even after aligning the width of the web-resource it will not show up with proper height on the Entity form once published to the PowerApp portal:

The workaround is to go to Custom JavaScript in Addition Settings tab under your Entity Form and use the following script:

clip_image004

$(document).ready(function () {

$( “#WebResource_WebResourceName”).height(‘200px’);

});

//Change the height as per your requirement

Hope it helps and Power 365ing as usual!
