I have created a simple App using an excel spreadsheet saved in my one drive, I have not shared to spreadhseet file in one drive.
However when I try to share the app with other collegues they can access it on their mobile devices but no data shows up and they get an error message (Something to do with metadata??). What am I missing?
You need to share your OneDrive spreadsheet file to the colleagues in OneDrive before you want them to access and read your data in PowerApps. The data should show after your share the file to them.
For your reference:
Thanks for your reply, that helps alot. i just have one more question. Eventually i'm looking at sharing this App with the whole of the company I work for (we have thousands of employees). It won't be feasbale to share the one drive document with everyone. Whats the best way around this, do I need to the spreadsheet into Sahrepoint?
If so what would you recommend as the best way for me to do this?
I'm Having the same issue here in my company, i'd like to share the app with everyone in the company and somehow there is no time to write or to process each name and emails to share, if there's any solution or you have got the answer, please tell us about it, we'll really appreciate it.
There is an option in the share page that allows you to share the app with the entire org.
Also, you can share with security groups rather than specific users.
