Microsoft released new Power Apps portals in late 2019, joining the Power Apps family of Canvas apps and model-driven apps.
The work of adding the Power Apps portal to the suite was long overdue. While Canvas and model-driven apps make it much easier to develop apps than InfoPath, they can't be used to build public apps for anonymous users. This void has now been filled by the Power Apps portal. What exactly is Power Platform?
In other words, Power Platform is a collection of no-code/low-code tools. Power Apps, which are made up of Power Apps portals, canvas apps, and model-driven apps, are among the tools available on the platform.
Power Platform has tools:
The Power Apps portal has two primary applications:
You want to create a public-facing website that anonymous and/or authenticated users can access.
You may want to combine other Microsoft technologies, such as embedding Power BI dashboards and/or reporting into your website, to create a unified experience.
When a user fills out a form on your website, the workflow is triggered. To store documents, use Azure Blob Storage and/or SharePoint.
To keep track of how your solution is being used, use Application Insights.
The Power Apps portal is not a new concept at all. It's been around for a while, but it was formerly known as "Dynamics 365 Portals" and was only available as an add-on for Dynamics 365 model-driven apps. Appearance of the solution is governed by the Bootstrap 3.3.x framework as well as the Liquid template language. Common Data Service is the foundation of the Power Apps Portal (CDS). All data on your portal, such as pages, page templates, forms and form data, will be stored in the CDS database.
Important: There can be only one portal in each Power Apps environment. If you need to create a second portal, you will need to create another environment.

In this tutorial, I will combine my interests in the personal health and power platform. On top of the Power Apps portal, we will create a gym signup form. When you submit the form, the information will be saved in our CDS database. This is how the final product will appear.:
To get there, we'll take the following steps:
Create a CDS database in the new Power Apps environment.
As a CDS entity, create a gym signup form.
Build a portal for Power Apps.
Add the form to the portal.
You must have at least one Power Apps environment when you can log in to https://make.powerapps.com. If you haven't already, you can use your existing environment to create a new portal. However, if you need to create a new environment, follow these steps: To get started, visit https://make.powerapps.com.
