Model-driven App Sharing FAQs

Why can’t I see the Share button when I am viewing my apps at Power Apps?

If you don’t see the Share icon and button in Power Apps, you don’t have appropriate permissions to be able to share the app to additional users. Check with your System Administrator to see if you can get the appropriate permissions. You will need share permissions on the model-driven app table.

I’ve shared an app with a user, but they still cannot access the app. Why?

This is likely a permission error as well – make sure their security role has Read permissions on the model-driven app table.

I’ve shared an app with a user. They can access the app but they cannot see custom tables that are in the app. Why?

Don’t forget to give the user a security role that has permissions on the custom tables within their security role! Minimally, they need Read access. If you want them to add new data in the custom table, they need Create. If you want them to edit data in the custom table, they need Write.
