Open an Excel file by end user

Hi, 

 

I usually create a PowerApp that is connected to a "DEFINED" data source (e.g. Excel in oneDrive). 

Then I publish the app for end user. Thus, the end user cannot change the data source.

 

Is there any way to allow end user to select their own data source (e.g. Excel in oneDrive)? 

That is something like open an file in PowerApp by end user

 

Thanks in advance

Sam

Hi @samsam ,

 

Currently, to manage data sources of an app, you have to be in design mode of PowerApps. You cannot change the data source information while playing the app. If you want your users to be able to change the data sources in the shared app, you need to give them co-owner permission.
