Help with making an Anonymous Feedback App

Hello everybody,

I want to add a new feature to my app so that employees can provide regular feedback anonymously.

It has to be some kind of anonymous survey where everyone only has to give their answer once when a new survey is available.

 

The easiest way to do this would be with MS Forms Extension on Power Apps, but due to the high cost of a premium license, I would like to look for an alternative.

So the first idea is to patch the answers in a first sharepoint list and then just move the answers with a cloud flow to another list so that all answers have only one creator, and then the answers from the first list to remove. The problem is that we can track the responses with the date and find out who gave an answer.

 

The second idea is: instead of doing it with Sharepoint List, we could do the same thing with an Excel spreadsheet so that we don't have a "Created" column. But we always see the versions of the file and from who it came.

 

Could someone help me figure out a way that makes it impossible even for me to know who has what answer?

Thanks very much !

Hi @Yassineca12 ,

One possibility is to

  • write the data to a SharePoint List
  • trigger a Flow on When an item is created or modified
  • write that data to a second list
  • delete the original record

Hi @Yassineca12 

One question - MS Forms is ideal for this and does not require a premium licence to simply have a Flow write the content to a SharePoint list (where it will all be created by the owner of the Flow). You could have a QR code to launch the Form.

Hi @WarrenBelz 
Thanks for your answer. The problem is that we are already using this solution, but we want to make it available directly from the App, so that it will be easier for the Colleagues to access it. Moreover we would have the chance to add new custumized Features to the "Feedback Form", that are in MS Forms not available.

@WarrenBelz Yep that is what I've done with some additional steps to make the recording in SharePoint randomized, but I am always able to track the answers through the Execution History of the flow. 

Is there maybe a possible solution for this, to make the process completely anonymous ? 

Hi @Yassineca12 ,

You gotta trust someone . . . I can see all sorts of confidential things not in my job description .  . to answer your question - MS Forms. If you are going to use a logged-in application such as Power Apps, you cannot get rid of all the breadcrumbs . . . it was designed this way.
