Export sharepoint list as csv & download.

Hey guys, I wanted to create a flow that export sharepoint list as csv and allow the powerapp users to download. I am stuck after "create csv table" in flow. These are my questions.

 

1. Is there any way create file on the local computer without pre-defined destination in File System. (Allowing my PowerApp users to click one button and automatically download sharepoint list as csv file at their local drive.) ?

 

2. Or perhaps #1 is impossible, is it possible to create a link that allows the users to download the file.?

 

I am new to powerapps, sorry if there are any misconception.

Hi @dion1999,

 

The #1 is impossible because there is no way to access File if you not pre-create a local gateway and file system.

For the #2, you could create a Share link for the new create CSV file, and make the sharing file could view and edit by people in your organization:

hi @dion1999  to answer the first question in my experience is not posible because file system needs a root or path to see where the file is going to be created.
