SharePoint List / PowerApp Data entry

Hi everyone, 


I am fairly new to PowerApps and need to create some functionality I am not sure how to best design: 


  • I have a SharePoint list with a main event, which is defined by a standardized event name (drop-down), even owner (name via a lookup field from another SharePoint list and an event date
  • I want to create functionality where the user can choose records by the event owners name, see all associated main events with dates and then choose one main event to document sub-events under
  • Documenting the sub-event should create a new record in a different SharePoint list (each main event will have multiple sub events), where the user can then document pertinent information (summary, attendees etc.) 
  • The sub-events need to be associated to the main event, so I assume the record created in the sub-event table will need to have the main event ID auto-created? 

Hope this makes sense and I am looking forward to your insights!
