Patch to Sharepoint - Permissions **Help Please!!**

Hi All,

 

I've created a 'Job Chat' app where a manager reviews an employees performance through a series of Q & A's. The answers get sent to an Sharepoint list, which I've done via a Patch function.

However for the Managers completing the form to be able to Patch to Sharepoint, I've had to add them all as members to the Sharepoint site. This has created GDPR issue where other managers will be able to view other employees Job Chat answers.

Is there a way to get round this? I've had a play about with the Permissions in my SP list but I'm not too sure on how these work. Ideally I need the managers to be able to patch to SP on clicking submit in the App, but not be able to go into the SP list and view the submissions. (I've created an email with all the submitted info on that gets sent to the manager). The only person I want to be able to access the submissions in Sharepoint is myself.

 

Is this possible?

Thanks,

Jonny.

Hi @JD2301 ,

 

If you want the managers to be able to edit/create SP list items in PowerApps, they must be able to view and edit items in SP list. PowerApps only connect to the data sources, you cannot have different permission settings between connectors inside PowerApps and the data source side.
