PowerApps Shoutouts - Not Loading shoutouts from other people

Hello I have been playing with PowerApps and want to use the Shoutout Template for Employee Recognition.

 

However, It is not sending shoutouts submitted by other people in my organization or loading shoutouts for others to see if i submit one...

 

I have checked the connectors and I am connected to O365Outlook and O365Users. Am i missing some type of connection? The app will give me a 404 error when i open it but the app runs fine for me by when i have someone else submit a Shoutout it will say "There was a problem saving your changes. The data source may be invalid."

 

Is there another verision of the available?

Hi @cma24381,

Can you provide a session ID for the instance where you experienced this?

yes so when i get into the main app “activity” the session ID is 

 

Session ID: 9d8f1ff0-12e8-49be-97ac-006a40ab6b7e
PowerApps 3.18075.22

 

when a user goes in and submits a Shoutout and gets the error the session ID is

 

Session ID: d7203ec2-6c26-4293-83cb-8c1e4d96fb37
PowerApps 3.18075.22

Sorry to hear you're having issues. 

 

A couple things to check:

  1. Are you using the template version connected to Excel? Check under view/data sources to see if Excel is listed. 
  2. The app reads and writes data from Excel. Can you check if the Excel workbook is shared with the other users?

In general, users need permission on the underlying data source(s) a PowerApp connects to.

Yes permissions are set correctly the people I have trying this are set to edit access to I can view their connections and their are correct. I had someone else trying building the app and that’s where I got the error on my computer for submitting shoutouts

I also went into my one drive and check the excel file and it is functioning... If I build the app I’m the only one who can submit shoutouts or vice versa if someone else makes it.
