Using standard Templates

Hi 

I am looking for some help on the PowerApps templates. I have selected create and then selected the Service desk Template.  I hit Create and the service desk app creates for me. When I look in data sources,  I see the list of excel files. The excel files are listed and under each file is the caption 'Imported from excel'.  These files are not saved in my onedrive, I don't see them anywhere else. How do I download these files into my onedrive, or where are they stored ? 

Thanks

Michael

Hi Michael,

@iAm_ManCat is correct - the standard templates from the homepage imports the data statically into the app.

However, there is the way to obtain the Excel spreadsheets.

If you were to create the app from within PowerApps studio itself (eg, by clicking this link
https://create.powerapps.com ), you can create an app from a template and you can specify the location of the Excel file.

Hi,

 

These are imported and exist within the App itself as static data - It is not possible (as far as I know) to download these easily as they exist within the DataSource.json file rather than as an actual excel file.

 

Personally I would recreate these files locally with your own version or use a different data source such as SharePoint, CDS, or SQL and then edit your app to use these instead,

 

Cheers,
