Teams Inspection App Data extract/export

I just discovered the Teams Inspection App. Is there any way to export the Data into Excel or somewhere where we could view the inspection data in tabular format?

Thank you

Hi,

I am afraid that by way of being a Teams Power App, using Dataverse light for want of a better description. Everything is pretty much obfuscated but still there nonetheless.

So if you were to go to the Power Apps Admin Centre, you will see a Power Apps environment that reflects the same name of the Team you added the Inspection App too.

If you take the environment Id and use it to go to the usual Power Apps landing Page, you will find the two Apps that make up the Teams app, called Inspections and Manage Inspections.

If you were to edit Inspections, you will see that the bulk of the data is stored in Dataverse tables, examples of which are shown:

So your best bet is to go to those tables and edit in Excel or export at the data source.


Thanks

Hi,

So in environments, select the environment and copy the environment Id.

go to powerapps.microsoft.com

 

and basically paste in the id you copied into the URL, in place of what we will call the regular environment id.

 

https://make.powerapps.com/environments/<environmentid>/home

Then on the left have a look at Tables under Data

Hi Henry

Thank you for the guidance. I was able to view the Data Table finally and was able to export to Excel.

Much appreciated 🙂

Thanks Henry for your explanation. I went in the PowerApps Admin Centre. Somehow the Environment section was blank. Maybe I don't have the access to the Environment  yet. I guess I need to check with my IT Admin.

Thanks again

Perhaps to access the Admin Centre but if you are the Owner of the Team to which the App was added, I would expect you to have access to the Dataverse Environment supporting the Team app.

Thanks Henry for clarifying. The environment was blank as I was only a Member not Owner.

I created the Inspection App in a Team where I am an Owner and was able to the view the Environment as attached and saw the Inspection app. Somehow I am not able to navigate to the Dataverse Tables in your screenshot. I don't have an Edit option for Inspection. Am I on the wrong page?PowerApps screen shot Inspection options.png

@ilara - Sure thing.

 

Assuming you are signed in with an account with sufficient permissions.

 

If this is a non Teams/Data Verse environment it is available as part of the URL once signed in at powerapps.microsoft.com

 

Click on the Gear Icon > Admin Link

Click on your environment

You should now be looking at it 🙂

 

 

Thank you
