Can I make a app open a certain folder on sharepoint based on user based on the user or a form on the app ?

I need to create a app that a user can press a button and open a folder based off of what the have entered on a form on the page before. It would be even better if the app could open a folder based off of the user.

Hi @Isaiah_John 

 

You can use the launch function and provide the url to the folder which will open the SharePoint site folder in a new tab

You can also do this conditionally based on the logged in user 

You can get the current user context in PowerApps use the User() function

How could I make it based on a previous user input?

Hi @Isaiah_John 

 

I am not sure of your use case or what the previous user input looks like

 

You can have links to all your tabs pre-setup in your PowerApp and then check previous user input and accordingly launch the respective Tab
