Create User Form

Hi,

 

I was hoping somebody may be able to help me with the best way to create a form for a user to complete and save using powerapps which will then create either a PDF or Word file. What I am trying to build is a type of feedback/review form that will save as a new file to either OneDrive or Sharepoint.

 

I have looked around and seen a few older posts saying it's a feature that isn't currently supported but I was hoping it may have been added recently or somebody may have found a workaround.

 

Thanks in advance,

 

Dom

Hi @dom_lloyd,

Could you please share a bit more about your scenario?

Do you want to save a PowerApps form into a PDF file or Word file, then save it into OneDrive or SharePoint?

If you want to save a PowerApps Data form (Edit form) into a PDF/Word file, I afraid that there is no direct way to achieve your needs in PowerApps currently.

As an alternative solution, you could consider take a try to extract data from the Data form (Edit form), and constract them as a HTML content (using HTML Text control), then pass the HTML content to a flow. Within the flow, you could consider take a try to create a PDF file using "Create file" action of OneDrive connector, and use the HTML content as the File Content field value of this action.

Please check and see if the following blog would help in your scenario:
