Records in Dynamics 365: Quick Search Step 1. Open the entity, where you need to find information. In our case, it is “Accounts”. Step 2. Go to the “Search for records”. Step 3.

For all our Power Apps projects we had one similar requirement – to have a very simple static menu, where each item should navigate to a specific screen. We had tried different methods and chose the best one for us. In this blog, we want to show you how easily we can create this menu using Gallery control. Before we start, we need to prepare two sets of icons for our menu: common and selected. You can use any icons which you like or have. I’ve imported all my icons to Media.
