“For years, Power Apps portals have offered users an end-to-end experience to create external portals quickly and confidently, and customize them with pages, layouts, and content. As a new, standalone product, Power Pages empowers anyone, regardless of their technical background, with an effective platform to create data-powered, modern, and secure websites.” https://powerpages.microsoft.com/en-gb/blog/announcing-microsoft-power-pages-build-secure-low-code-websites/
Whilst this is still in preview, you can test a whole range of features and capabilities.
In Design Studio, users can easily design, style, configure, and publish modern business websites. While the professionals with web building experience will likely want to craft a site from scratch, templates are ready to be used and make including text, images, custom forms and lists a seamless process.
Explore the Templates Hub which comes equipped with full-featured websites with demo data so you can hop straight into scheduling, registrations, application submissions and more.
The Learn Hub is home to a number of guides, tutorials and quick videos so you can learn how to build websites, use code and modify your site design to suit your business needs. Microsoft Dataverse, on the other hand, enables you to securely collect and share business information with your site visitors.
When it comes to safety, Power Pages has you covered. It uses Microsoft Azure as well as DDoS Protection and connects with Dataverse to provide security capabilities such as advanced encryption, role-based access controls and support for web firewalls.
What You Can Create
Don’t be fooled in thinking that just because Power Pages is a low-code development that it doesn’t have the capacity to build out complex sites. Quite the opposite!
Power Pages has the ability to support enterprise-wide, professional solutions including community services sites (grant applications, incident and outage reporting and more), FAQ sites (common questions regarding products, services, policies and more), customer self-service (24/7 support services such as returns, appointment bookings and warranty registrations).
Power Pages has already been trusted from a range of industries including sales to government services around the globe.
