How to choose a value from a drop down list and reflect it in another page as view only

hello guys,

 

I`m making an application that show a todo list for the tasks of employees (The list is fixed ).

 

I want the app to show the task and next to it a check box or I can make as drop down list of Completed, not completed.

and i want the status of the tasks to be reflected in the teamleader page 

 

here is a photo of how I imagine things 

from layout.png

My problems currently are :

 

1 - How to make a page that show the employee task, and how to enable him to select whither it is completed or not.

2- how to reflect the progress of the employee tasks on the Team leader page.

 

I tried to insert a form and connected to excel file, but I`m not able to see its fields when I press the play button.

 

Note, I`m not able to use sharepoint cuz my company have some restrictions about it.

Will you connect the Checkboxes to the Excel Table?

If so, show a sample

No i didn`t

 

I`m thinking about changing the check box to Drop down list with 2 options completed and uncompleted.

 

But i don`t if I should but the drop down list in excel or at powerapps.

 

Let me know if you have any idea

With only two options, use power apps like:

["Completed", "uncompleted"] in the items property of the Dropdown.

Yes, I tried that but how can I reflect the progress and tasks done by the employee on the leader page ?

Are you showing what have been saved into your excel or just the current selected item of the dropdown from the first page?

in the employee page, the employee should have a list of the tasks he needs to do , next to it a drop down list he should select completed  when he completed the task. 

 

now the whole status and progression of the task should be reflected on the team leader page 

 

I`m trying to save any updates from the employee page to the excel file, and then I want the data updated in excel to be reflected in the leader page so he can view the progress.

 

I hope i answered you 😀

In this case insert a Gallery on the next page and connect the excel sheet to it.

The status (ThisItem.Status) label will show completed or uncompleted.
