boooking app

Hi everyone !

 

I apologize straight away for my english 🙂

 

I am a french apprentice developer, and i recently joined a big french company as software developer.

They asked me to develop a vehicles booking website, the objective is to propose a booking calendar to users, so they can reserve a car to do drives.

 

Problem is , they asked me to use Sharepont online, so after some search, i found that 2 solutions could be feasible.

 

1st. Use PowerApps to create an App

 

It could be great because the users of the app will use it on smartphones and Pc's, so i could put the app on a webPart, on a Sharepoint website and it could be down loadable on smartphones directly, without passing by the SharePoint website.

 

But there is a problem, im dont know the tool ,and i dont know if powerApps can meet the customer's needs which are :

 

->a booking calendar is suggested to users depending on their job and localisation in the first place (those datas will be used without any users actions), and then on a bunch of parameters that they will choose :

-drive's distance( to determine the type of vehicle needed gasoline/eletric)

-number of travellers for the drive (to determine the size of the vehicule needed 3/5 doors)

 

-> a system of user's rights depending on their jobs, which will determine their booking posibilities on the booking calendar :

-ex 1: a user of a X region, can't reserve a vehicle of a Y region.

-ex 2 : a user A (worker) can't cancel the reservation of user B (worker) But user C (gestionnary), can because he got the rights to do so.

 

->a backend which allow the gestionnary to access statistics about reservations

 

2cd. A webapp

 

so my questions are :

-Is PowerApps powrefull enought to allow me to build this application ?

-If yes, how am i supposed to do to host my datas ?

-> vehicles with their datas

-> users and their datas

-> roles and rights

-> reservations

because i dont understand yet the system of data storage in PowerApps and how i can do all the things i have to do without coding anything (which is not my purpose but PowerApps seems to be made to avoid coding)?

 

Cordially , remy

Hi @Rm97,

 

First of all, you need to make sure that their Office365 plan include PowerApps, you can check on below list:

https://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=837851&clcid=0x409

 

Thought I have to say that I didn't fully understand what you want to achieve in PowerApps, I think you mainly want to have the calendar in PowerApps. Please refer to below blogs about creating customized calendar :

If you want to use Outlook calendar, you also try out the Meeting Capture/Book a room template apps.
