So Cards are finally in Power Apps! As of writing this post, Cards is in Preview in the Power Apps (https://make.powerapps.com/)
Here’s the official page of Adaptive Cards – https://adaptivecards.io/
In case you are new to Adaptive Cards and figuring out how they work with Teams, you can check my post here – Adaptive Cards for Teams to collect data from users using Power Automate | SharePoint Lists
Cards in Power Apps
Here’s how you can start creating Cards in Power Apps –
- In the appropriate environment having correct rights, you can see Cards section –
- Then, you can click on “+ Create a card” button in the Create section of the menu.
- Give the Card a suitable name. In my example, I’m calling it Swag Kit Card. You can name it based on your application/use.
- It’ll take a few moments for your card to be created. You’ll see the below dialog while it’s getting created in the backend.
- Once the process is completed, you’ll be taken to the Editor itself and this is what it looks like –
- And as you can see on the left hand-menu, the controls which you can get are the ones you could see in the Adaptive Cards IO designer.
In the Data, you’ll see only Dataverse at the time of this being in a Preview release.
- In this example, I’ll keep things simple and generate a static card which can be used.
- Once I save this card, you can see how the JSON is built out
- You can copy the selected part which is expected in the below used Teams action in Power Automate
- And as an example, since this Card currently supports for Teams – I can simply copy this from the JSON view and paste it in one of the Actions for Teams i.e. Post adaptive card in a chat or channel.
- So, when I Run the Flow, I can get the Adaptive Card show up as a message from Flow Bot.
And that’s it!!
