Using VisualSP in iFrames

Applies to: VisualSP
Print Friendly, PDF & Email

You can add inline help and create a walkthrough that points to elements within an iFrame, such as what you will find in Power Apps and Business Central. A couple of things to note:

  1. When in Power Apps or Business Central, you are not able to select any elements in the suite bar as part of a walkthrough or to place an inline icon.

  2. When embedding a Power Apps into a SharePoint page, you will notice 2 tabs:

Location #1 is the regular VisualSP help tab which gives in-context help to your users.

Location #2 is the help tab embedded within Power Apps. Because it is grayed-out, your end-users won't see the tab. However, as an Editor or Subscription Admin, you can still click on the tab to create help items that will appear within the embedded Power Apps web part.


Currently this feature is only available with Chrome and Edge browser extensions. Firefox will become available when they update their schema.
