Expense Report APP - Reporting Question

Hi Experts, 


I'm using the Expense Report template to create an app for ER submissions.

The only challenge I have is that I need a way for our finance team to view a report of all approved expenses say for the past month in a nice excel report. I'm a newbie at this. Can anyone walk me through what we need to add to pull this report? I'm not an Excel or SharePoint expert.

Re: Expense Report APP - Reporting Question

Hi @jhd4440 ,

Do you want to know how to design data source for  Expense Report APP?

Actually, this is an example app that our official doc has described in details:

Please notice the "Create the Expenses list" part and "Create the LineItems list" part.

These two parts describe how to design these two sharepoint lists in details.



Best regards,

Re: Expense Report APP - Reporting Question

Hello @v-yutliu-msft - thanks for the response. Yes I'm using that app template you linked to create my app. When an expense is submitted, I need the approvers to be able to see the details of the submission without having to go outside of the approval email if possible. What I'm hoping to achieve is the following:

This doesn't work for me though. I get an error stating:

"The inputs of template action 'Condition' at line '1 and column '2335' cannot reference action 'Start_and_wait_for_an_approval'. The action 'Start_and_wait_for_an_approval' is nested in a foreach scope of multiple levels. 


Below is a screenshot of all the conditions and actions.
