Skills matrix app and galleries

Hello PowerApps Community,

I am trying to put a skills matrix in to PowerApps that we can embed into SharePoint so supervisor can allocate resources quickly and more efficiently. The data source is a one drive excel spread sheet. Attached is a small example of the spreadsheet we are using. 

I wold like to be able to have the workers name shown in a gallery where we can select them. Then navigate to a new page and display their skills by product within a scrollable gallery. I can do this with a data table but there are to many products to display them nicely (over 200 product and 50 worker). Additionally this needs to be in a phone format, 


The problem I am having is either reformat my data and make a button for every worker or I have a button for every product. I am have been using PowerApps for a few months now and my skills are basic. I can use filiter/sort/seach, edit/view forms, and do navigation. I don't know what to do and I cannot see the solution out side of making a massive app that has a ungodly amount of pages. Any help or suggestions that can point me in another direction would be great. 


Thanks in advance. This is how i have gained most of PowerApps knowledge by asking questions and trial and error. This community is a invaluable resource to anyone looking for help to improve their skills. I can provide more info if needed.  I did not include any pics of our initial trial app due to it containing sensitive information.

Hi @Anonymous ,


Firstly, from the screenshot you uploaded, I think you should a gallery in 1st screen. In this gallery, there is only one Name field show. Then when selecting one name, you navigate to the next screen. In this screen, you should use Form control instead of gallery. Form control will display the detailed information of each records of the data source. 


My understanding is that you have too many columns for skills of products, but that's not an issue for Form control. It is scroll-able, so you can add as many fields as you want. 


It sounds to me that you only need to create an auto-generated app using this excel table by Home > Start from data > Create > connect to your excel table in OneDrive. 


Or did you mean that you have multiple tables as the data source? 


If my understanding is incorrect, please explain and tell.
