Introducing Microsoft Power Pages

Learn how to quickly spin up stunning business webpages using the latest tools from Microsoft in a matter of hours.


Building beautiful, user-friendly websites with seamless navigation and the latest web features used to be something only professional developers could do. Emerging technology has now put this ability into everyone’s hands—no matter their technical skill.


Tools like Microsoft Power Pages (previously called the Power Apps Portal) enable users of varying skills to build stunning external-facing websites without writing a single line of code. From customizable templates and design options to intuitive web features like scheduling and form submission, Power Pages contains all the essential web-building tools needed for success. Additionally, because Power Pages is part of the Power Platform stack, it can easily communicate and integrate with other Microsoft technologies.



What is Microsoft Power Pages?

Previously bundled with Microsoft’s Power Apps Portal (aka the Power Portal), Microsoft recently added new features to Power Pages to roll it out as a standalone product. The solution

is a “secure, enterprise-grade, low-code software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform for creating, hosting, and administering modern external-facing business websites.” More simply, it’s a solution that allows users to quickly create and deploy great-looking business websites that work seamlessly across devices and platforms.


Some of the top features of Power Pages include:

  • Design Studio

  • Templates

  • Learning hub

  • Content Delivery Network

  • Responsive rendering

  • Integration with development tools (GitHub, Visual Studio, Code, Azure DevOps, etc.)

  • Robust security and data governance tools

  • Data asset creation

Arguably the biggest benefit to utilizing Power Pages is users have access to easy-to-use, low-code web development tools. This allows users to quickly create and stand up new web pages at a much faster rate, ensuring customers, partners, or internal users have easy access to the information they need.


Top 4 Features of Microsoft Power Pages

As we mentioned above, Power Pages contains dozens of features that allow for fast, easy web development. Below are the top four:


1. Design Studio

This is the heart of the product and where users can build actual web pages using low-code tools. Within the studio, users have access to numerous workspaces, including workspaces for building individual or global pages. Admins can easily update, change permissions, or adjust other settings in their own secure space.

Within the Design Studio, users have access to tools like:

  • Out-of-the-box themes

  • Interchangeable views

  • Custom layouts

  • Attachments

Each page can be accessed directly from the homepage, allowing users to quickly access their pages from a centralized location.


2. Learning Hub

A huge boasting point of Microsoft is it’s designed to be used by users with little to no technical skills. However, in times when users do need support, Power Pages features a Learning Hub that includes articles, videos, how-to documents, FAQs, and more. The dedicated section has everything users need to create compelling websites for their audiences.


3. Security and Authentication

To ensure unauthorized users don’t access or edit pages without permission, Power Pages features robust security and authentication tools, including:

  • Site visibility

  • Authenticated users

  • Web roles

  • Table and page permissions

Creating security permissions for both website content and pages can be done using Power Pages’ built-in tools. Using these tools, admins can ensure that only approved users can access or change pages, keeping everything consistent and protected.


4. Authentication Checklist

Even with the platform's ease of use, creating a website can be an overwhelming process. It can be easy for things to slip through the cracks and create a poor user experience. To ensure you push pages live with all the features and capabilities needed for a great experience, JourneyTEAM has created a go-live checklist. The list also includes a list of authentication tasks, which ensures all appropriate users have access to pages or sites after go-live.
