Update task list in Sharepoint through PowerApps

I am trying to find a way to either update an excel list in Sharepoint or a custom list in Sharepoint with information from PowerApps.  The PowerApps App will be ran on multiple devices and I am having difficulty identifying a flow that would allow me to update the list in Sharepoint everytime I click the OK button at the bottom of the PowerApps.  Any advice would be greatly appreciated.


There will be no need to update any already stored items.  If a need is required it will be done in Sharepoint by the individual.  This will strictly be used to add new items into Sharepoint.


Example is provided below.


PowerApps on IPad:

  1. Fill out Box1 & Box2
  2. Click 'OK'


Microsoft Flow

  1. Store Data from Box1 & Box2
  2. Open Sharepoint and find the custom list or excel sheet
  3. Find the first blank row in the custom list
  4. add information from Box1 into column A and from Box2 into column B of the first blank row


  1. Clear Box1 & Box2

Thank you everyone for your help.  If you need further explanation I will try my best to be able to provide it.

Hi @malekedward,


We are able to update a SharePoint custom list from PowerApps, but I am afraid that it is not possible currently update an Excel in SharePoint.

Have you created an app based on the custom list in SharePoint?

On the app, there should be an EditForm for you to update newly added data from the app to the list.

I assume that this doc on PowerApps forms could be a reference for you:


About your scenario on Flow, I am not sure with that. What do you want to achieve by using Flow?


If possible, please show me more info to help better understanding your scenario.

Best regards,
