Enrypting sharepoint list content from Powerapps

Hi all,

 

I have been building PowerApps to support our onsite training and have made a really cool examination screen. The problem is that i use sharepoint lists and want to make sure nobody can look into these lists, as they are easy to be found. I have managed to close off these lists with sharepoint permissions, but now only an owner can view and write away examresults. This is not ideal.

 

I was wondering if i can let owners inside the app prep an exam, and somehow encrypt it to a public list. The exam is made available to the candidate and he/she can edit the content.

@Jeroen_Tijsen there is no direct way to accomplish this. As per my understanding, you may need to have a flag in SP list along with the trainee lookup and pul the data and shoe it to the trainees using a nested flow concept. On AppStart you can show if a training is valid to show for a trainee you can show respective training information and same way while writing back use approach (capture trainee details and update back in SP)

Refer this for details https://mspowerassist.blogspot.com/2020/08/how-to-create-nested-flow-power.html

ensure the operations in Child flow are performed using a service account which has access on SP list.
