First of all, if I'm creating this conversation the wrong place, sorry for that. I'm not used to online forums.
I've received the task to develop an App that would replace the paperwork and all the difficulties related to it. I'm an maintenance department managing more than 100 hundred sites pretty far from each other and from the maintenance headcenter. To each site, we have a form with its equipments and a "OK" or "Not OK" to the maintainer to mark. Actually, all the work is being done with printed forms and later uploaded mannualy to a ERP. At the same time, we have many tablets available.
I've already started reading tutorials on PowerApps, but I'd like the community feedback if its possible to build an App so that the maintainer could open on its tablet, register all equipments status on a data base. So this information would be online (could be as simples as a Excel sheet on OneDrive) to anyone to access.
Oh, some of the sites are in areas with no signal. That would require the App to store all the info until internet connection is on.
Kind regards to all the community,
Greetings from Brazil.
@timlActually, thank you taking the time and writing it. I discovered it several months into creating a canvas app. It would have saved me countless hours and frustration in figuring out PowerApps. I'm waiting for 'Intermediate PowerApps' (hint..hint).
