Assign a button to every user and collect their responses in Power App

Hello, I'm new to PowerApps and my task is to build an app in a few weeks of time. One functionality is required in my Canvas app and that's collecting responses from users of the app. I'll show you an example of my problem below.


So, I'm using a SharePoint list as my data source and I have a gallery in my PowerApp where I display the list items. Let's say I want to assign a "poll" (SharePoint list item) to multiple users. The assigned people are saved in the SharePoint in the "Person" column and they are Office 365 users.


I want to show a button to every assigned user. For example, I want to give all the assigned users 2 buttons as an option, YES and NO. An assigned user clicks a button. And now I want to collect the response somewhere. The collected responses table in my app should look something like this after every assigned user have clicked their choice:


 Is this something that's possible to create with Power Apps and Power Automate?


Any help is kindly appreciated! Even better if someone could show me a demonstration of how to implement this.

If its only about saving Yes or No together with the username to the sharepoint, then having individual buttons per user may not be the efficient way of going about that.

I suggest:

1. Insert a Radio control and set its items to: ["Yes", "No"]

2. Insert a Textbox or label that will collect the name of the looged in user: User().FullName

3. Insert One button to Patch or send the data to the sharepoint list:

  Patch( Datasource, Defaults( Datasource), { User: UserTextbox.Text, Response:Radio1.Selected.Value } )

Thank you for your reply.


Having a button is crucial for this application and also we're looking for a functionality where a user could respond to an adaptive card sent by a Flow bot in Microsoft Teams and collect the response from there. 


One requirement is to show the user responses in a table or a gallery as I showed in my original post.


Is there any way to implement something like this?
