Create a new excel file when a new form has been submitted in power apps

Hey I have this project of a new event creator and sign in app were users can sign in into availiable events. 

 

I have a form for creating a new event which submits the information to an excel file row (Name of the event, date, time, number of spaces avialiable). When a new event is created (a form is submitted) i would like to create a new excel file of the event it self and store it in one drive, so that later, when people sign in to the event their information to be stored in this created excel file of the event. This excel file of any event created should be stored for reviewing the assistance of the event at the end of a period. 

 

I have been searching for a flow trigger that creates a new excel file but I haven't found any of this yet.

 

Is there any flow for creating a new excel file based on any trigger? If not, what could be a possible solution for the problem presented?

Re: Create a new excel file when a new form has been submitted in power apps

Hi @Anonymous ,

 

Do you want to create an Excel file, format it to Table, then submit data from PowerApps to the Excel table via Flow?

 

I am afraid your scenario could not be achieved currently. Excel Online (Business) connector does have actions could be used to Create sheet and table, but in the action Add a row into a table, dynamic contents are not supported in File and Table fields.

 

Here is one of the similar requests on Flow Ideas Forum, please vote the idea at here:

Re: Create a new excel file when a new form has been submitted in power apps

Hey @v-yamao-msft thanks for the knowledge!

 

Yeah, there's some sort of trouble there because even though if I get to create a new excel file it would still be hard to assign the new information of that new excel because it wouldn't exist so, how would I call it for being populating in the check-in form? I haven't heard about that dynamic term yet, I would dig up on it!
