Add customizations to your inventory tracking apps in Part 2 of our series on how to build your first app in Power Apps. See how to add new part records and a search function to quickly find inventory as your catalog grows, incorporate logic to trigger an email notification when parts are running low, change the color theme, and upload photos of parts to the catalog to accompany records.

In Part 1 of the series, we showed the basics of how to build an inventory tracking app from scratch incorporating AI-driven Copilot capabilities. We added a mechanical parts table for data entry and sample data stored in Dataverse on the backend.

Emma Cooper, Principal PM Manager for Power Apps, gives step-by-step instructions to customize your app in Power Apps.
