It is worth taking the time to add some functional features to SharePoint pages. SharePoint is already a wealth of information and an obvious search starting point but by embedding Power Apps onto SharePoint pages, SharePoint becomes the starting point for workflow as well. There is less need to know where to go for various services when everything appears in SharePoint.
In the example above, the SharePoint site page includes the most commonly used tools and most important organizational information, front and center. The Group Request Form, a single-screen Power App, is embedded on the page for convenient use.
Attention should be paid to the layout of the SharePoint page and layout of the app. In this case, the app was designed in phone layout to take advantage of the clean three-column layout featured on this SharePoint page. Paying close attention to colors also provides continuity on the page.
