Collaborative Controls in Power Apps

Everyone has heard the saying “two heads are better than one”, but what if there isn’t a way for these heads to easily share their thoughts and opinions? In today’s modern workplace, being able to effectively communicate and collaborate is the key to getting things done. This is even more apparent if a large portion of your workforce is operating remotely or across a large geographic area. Microsoft continues to invest in developing tools for this purpose, and has just made sharing even easier with Collaboration controls (Preview) in Power Apps!
