Sharing a PowerApp where underlying data is OneDrive for Business

Hi all, thank you in advance for any support you can provide. 

I have built an app which updates an excel file saved on my onedrive for business (under my work email). I'd like to allow other users within my organization to be able to update this app. I have managed to share the app to the entire organization, but I am not sure how I can give them the appropriate underlying data access. 

Any guidance would be appreciated!

Best,
Noelani

Hi Noelani,

 

You must also share the Excel File itself that the app uses to the people who need to see it. 

 

If not, they won't be able to see the data. in the Power App either.

 

How you do this is, that you need to share it on OneDrive as if you were sharing the actual file directly with the other person on OneDrive. You do this for each person that needs to see this information (i.e. those who will use the app).

 

Check if this helps.
