Building App to Collect Data

I am just looking at PowerApps as a solution to a task I need to automate.  I have 35 staff members from whom I need to collect four pieces of information on a daily basis.  Can I use PowerApps to provide them with an online app where they can enter these four pieces of informaiton whichin turn get dumped into a datebase that I can access to see the compiled results from all of their inputs?

Re: Building App to Collect Data

Hi @KeithGodfrey,



Could you please explain a bit for "compiled results from all of their inputs"? If only the data inputed, then 

Yes, this is available under PowerApps.

After the App creation, you just need to Share this App with your staffs.

Adding some reference:

Create an app from scratch

Share an App

If you have any further questions regaridng PowerApps usage, please post back.

Re: Building App to Collect Data



@v-micsh-msft is correct. The basic templates can do what you want since it's a fairly simple need. All you have to do is set up the table with your columns with a service of your choice: OneDrive, Dropbox, SharePoint, etc. PowerApps was made for users like you.


The real muscle work will be when you decide how you want your data to be analyzed and visualized in PowerApps.
