Suggestions on how to create an app

Hi,

I'm brand new to the Power Apps platform, and I was wondering if you could help me out.

As of now some of our users are using a word template archived in Outlook, which they use to document faults and flaws in apartments (including pictures), and then send to themselves/colleagues for archiving on a fileserver.

I want to build an app that does basically the same thing:

 

So far I've made an app with an index page and several buttons that will take the user to a new screen with a form where they can type in their data, take a picture, and save the data (see pics). It's all connected to an Excel document. But if it's the right way to do it, as many examples I've seen are using the gallery instead.

 

So my question is basically: How would you tackle this?

 

Kind regards,

BBBOIT

Take a look at the Site Inspection template.  I don't recommend using templates directly, but its a great way to get ideas on how to build a specific kind of app.  Here's how to build out a template to look at.
