Shoutout Template issue

Hi,

I'm pretty new to Powerapps and trying to customise the shoutout template.

 

Is there a way to use a sharepoint list for the shout out types instead of the built in collection?

or

Can I allow an end user (ie someone in HR) to amend the Shout out types wihtin the app itself? My experience so far is that as it clears and then adds the items when the app is started up that this is not possible and if i remove the ClearCollect then no collection appears at all and the images disappear from any shout outs already sent.

 

I have managed to create a screen to edit the type and description for the shout out but then as soon as the app is opened by someone this is then overwritten.

 

I would really like to be able to customise this.

 

Debra

Hi @Deb3107,

 

There are 4 collections in Shoutouts template app, you can Patch the collection to SharePoint list, but please understand that SharePoint list has many kinds of column types and you need to use different parameter to update different column types. For example, for person and group column, the parameter should be:

{'@odata.type': "#Microsoft.Azure.Connectors.SharePoint.SPListExpandedUser",
  Claims:"i:0#.f|membership|" & Lower(EmailAdress),
  Department:"",
  DisplayName:xxxxx,
  Email:xxxx,
  JobTitle:".",
  Picture:"."}
