After much effort "hacking" on an app, I think I'm going back to the drawing board due to the complexity that has resulted!
I need some PowerApp architecture (Sharepoint list columns, Galleries, Forms, etc.) advice on the following requirements. I'm hoping that this exercise will help other "non-programmers" through the process of requirements gathering and architecting as well. This is a critical process as PowerApps, due to its nature as a "low code solution", pulls more non-programmers into the mix.
Supervisors are responsible for 1-10 Employees
There are 13 tasks that Supervisors must evaluate Employees on
These tasks can be evaluated in any order
Supervisors must perform a minimum of 3 evaluations per month on different Employees (unless they are responsible for 2 or less Employees)
Supervisors must evaluate all 13 tasks every 6 months
6 month period 1: Jan. 1 - Jun. 30,
6 month period 2: Jul. 1 - Dec. 31
Supervisors evaluate a different Employee each time until the 6 month period ends, then restart the process for the next period.
Need a way to ensure Supervisors have completed at least 3 evaluations each month
Need a way to ensure Supervisors have completed all 13 evaluations each half (6 month period)
Need a way to notify Supervisors if they have not done either of the above.
Must use a Sharepoint list as a Data Source
What are some best practices for drafting up business requirements such as these?
Is there some type of table or matrix that would help with determining functions/galleries/sharepoint lists I need?
How do I determine the best Sharepoint-PowerApp relationships?
What tables do I need, etc.?
What are some other approaches to fleshing out a logical, simple to implement PowerApp?
While going my own route, I ended up with an app that is complete and functional, but does not meet the Reporting Requirements lined out above. And I cannot for the life of me figure out how to get the reports I need from the current Sharepoint List/Gallery I have.
Any advice here would go a long ways to helping new PowerApps users get this critical definition done before embarking.
