How to: Record information from input into PowerApps and save it as a new input line in an excel sheet?

Hey guys,

 

So, I have made a simple PowerApps setup, with a bunch of different metrics. The idea is to create an app where the users can evaluate different stores, based on fixed criterias. The list of stores is constant from a drop-down meny, the evaluation metrics is mostly Yes / No or 1-5 stars, with the possibility of a comment at the end. 

Now that I`ve set up this "questionare", I find myself having trouble finding a way to connect the app to an excel-sheet, and make it so that whenever a user hits "end" on the app, I would like all his input to be saved. Any ideas? 

All the info i want recored is now at the final page. Theres a bounch of different Mean-values and Yes / No toggles and a comment.

You need to have the columns in an Excel table "bound" to the various controls. Normally you set up the data table first and then select from your list of columns for each item you put on screen. The "DataField" property of each control or input will have to be matched to your columns. The Excel sheet needs to have the table built first and then added as a data source in the app.
