The new model-driven form designer (WYSISYG) in PowerApps for Model-driven apps (Dynamics 365 CE) Preview

  • We can also check and configure how the UI would render for different type of client application

  • Property Pane for the type of control selected which allows us to quickly update the properties unlike selecting the field and then clicking on Change Properties which will open the dialog box.

  • No Business Rules or Form Properties dialog box.
  • No Enable Security Roles…
