Track canvas app error in Power app monitor

Regardless of level or experience, anyone can make coding errors from time to time. Let's say we have a request to create a customer support application to provide Dynamics 365 with product information. We have developed a canvas app and it is working well, but what if there is any problem/error in sending the product information? Here a need arises to track the errors and provide appropriate solutions for the same. Power apps monitor is a tool that looks at all the activities in the user session and can check if there is any error with app usage and record creation. In power apps, the monitor displays a list of errors where the user can check all the errors that have occurred and find solutions for them. To trace the error, we can use the app's notify method and send that error to the controller of the power application using the track function.
