New to Powerapps: Shout out is not working for me

Hi All,

 

I am new to power apps and trying to customize the Shoutout app for my organization.

When  I started to customize the app it asked me for the permission of office 365 and outlook. I customized it and saved the same, but when I am sending shoutouts to the users it's not going to anyone and also my shoutouts are not getting saved, in new session it is empty.

I read multiple threads and seems to be app saves the data in an excel sheet but the app did not ask for any connection.

Please help me with this.

Re: New to Powerapps: Shout out is not working for me

Hi @hduwja , @hemant_kr 

 

 

I just did a video with a step by step walkthrough of updating the shoutout template (I made the video after looking at this post)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LDEJD2LKRkc

Hopefully this will guide you'll through setting the App correctly

 

No doubt the template has issues, but please note this template was created a long time ago

Also, everyone on this forum tries their best to provide solutions. Sometimes it does happen that a particular query is such that it requires users to invest their time and actually recreate your scenario and hence it took this long to respond

 

If this video works for you, please do share your feedback and share it

 

Note: there are still things like the uploaded shoutout photo and other small quirks that can easily be rectified 

 

Regards,

Reza Dorrani

Hi @hemant_kr 

 

Todd Baginski had done a video on this a while ago

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o-5r58Qr_L0

 

It includes the demo and setup instructions for the Shout Out App

Re: New to Powerapps: Shout out is not working for me

Thanks, RezaDorani,

 

I checked the video you have shared, but my issue is I am not getting any alert for one drive or excel connection.

once I create the application, I am not able to save the shoutouts. I am sending shoutouts to my colleague, they are not getting it.

 

Please refer screenshot below, I tried to create this app again. It's asking only for office365 and outlook connection and after that nothing.

When I am saving this app it's getting saved on the cloud.

I thought I will get the solution on this big platform. But in one month I did not get any solution. Sad to realize that this big brand doesn't have solutions for simple queries.

Re: New to Powerapps: Shout out is not working for me

Thanks, Reza,
this video was very helpful to customize the app. As I mentioned, I am new to power apps, it was really difficult to know the reason. Now I have an idea about coding and other parts so I can work with the Apps.

 

Really appreciate your effort. Thanks a lot.

Re: New to Powerapps: Shout out is not working for me

Thanks @RezaDorrani ! Very useful and glad i was able to follow it. However, you kept glazing over the userphotometadata error... even if it does only show for a few seconds, my users don't understand.  Can you provide an explanation or fix for this ?

 

Also, is it true that when a user closes then re-opens the app that their activity is gone? Is the fix to move to hosting the items on sharepoint/excel? I get a blank slate each time i open the app.

 

Finally, the previous app used to email the recipient , their manager and the creator.  Now it only sends email to the recipient. 

 

Much thanks in advance!
Joe

Re: New to Powerapps: Shout out is not working for me

@RezaDorrani  Hi, I am trying to setup Shout Out Phone layout but it is not sending me email notifications and it is not even storing my data to collections. I tried to look for the code but couldn't find it. Can you do a video for phone layout so it will be helpful to get to the main code and do the changes as shown in the previous video. Or guide me here on how to get to the main code.
