Sharepoint sync


I have created an app using PowerApps and I use also SharePoint for importing and exporting data.
All the users of the app share the same environment where they are supposed to save a zip file including data from the app.
They are supposed use the same zip file that they replace it each time.

I've observed the following:
-Syncing it's not happening always automatically, they have to refresh or click again the sync option
-When user1 and user2 are using the app and they replace the zip file at the same time, for user1 this work, I think the one that replaces more quick and for user2 a new zip file is automatically created in SharePoint even if he has chosen to replace the existing zip file.

So should the users refresh each time?
Should they wait like one minute each time to replace the zip file?

Thank you in advance!

Re: Sharepoint sync

Hi @StellaTs,


For the .zip file, is it created through the Export control?

Could you please share more details about how you store the data under SharePoint?

Data syncing in PowerApps should be in time schedule, which means only the data submitted before editing is visible.

For two users editing the same data source, that would depends on who finishes first.

And the data should be overwritten by the file submitted later.


A possible workaround should be:

Within PowerApps, show the data which is only allowed the person to view or edit.

With a filter based on the User login User() function.
