Connecting two Apps together

I have a question and wonder if it is possible, or how difficult it would be do.  I have a SharePoint form customized with Powerapps, I have a multiple-line text field for Kudos/Success Stories, what I'd like to do is use the Shout Out App (or something similar), have a button for the user to create a Shout Out and then a link to that Shout Out in the Sharepoint list field.  I'm thinking I would create a separate SharePoint list for then Shout Outs to be saved to.  Any suggestions to would be greatly appreciated.

Hi @kmw1130 ,

 

Yes you can absolutely do that how you can do is in SharePoint form add a button using PowerApps maker tool along with the parameter of the ID from which you are triggering the as below:
onSelect property of the button:
Launch("<<Shoutout Apps URL>>"&param=thisitem.ID");

once you submit the shout out in that app update the parent list item with the ID passed to it.


I hope this resolved your issue if you see any challenge/need further help please let me know I am always happy to do it for my community.

@KrishnaV Thank you, I will give this a try.  I'm using the ShoutOut Template.  I need to update the data source so it saves to a list on my site first.
