Access Sharepoint list view in Powerapps

Hi 

I encountered some delegation warning when I used "Filter" on Sharepoint List. So I created a Sharepoint view on the list. May I know is there a way to access the Sharepoint view from PowerApps?

Hi Kris,

The textbox is working but the problem is I have more than one such dropdown list and each dropdown list I need a textbox so make the UI not very nice and look cramped.

Thank you everyone for active response. I went through many posts in this forum related to this problem but have not found a good solution to this problem yet.

Hi @sbgoh ,

Have you taken a try with the 'Power Automate' flow to achieve your needs?

 

According to the needs that you mentioned, please consider take a try with the 'Power Automate' flow solution I mentioned above. You could fire a flow from your canvas app, and then do the "Operations" in your flow, and then return retrieved results from your flow back to your app.

I haven't try as recently my Power Automate is down so pending for Microsoft to fix it. 

Someone did data loss prevention policy changes and now it prevent the flows to run. 😞

Hi @sbgoh ,

Ok. Based on the 'Power Automate' flow solution, I have made a test on my side, just like the thread solution I provided above, it could retrieve the desired records from SP List from Power Automate flow back to canvas app without Delegation limits (I have retrieved 20000 records from Power Automate flow back to your canvas app successfully).

 

According to the Delegation issue that you mentioned, I have provided all possible solutions for it. I have not come up with a better solution for this issue.

 

As an another possible solution (which I do not recommend), you could consider change your SP list data source into CDS Entity, then you may get rid of this Delegation warning issue.

Initially, I am using CDS but as we are in pilot and due to cost constraint I have to use Sharepoint instead. So if the apps is accepted by many users maybe we will migrate to a better data source.
