Hi @Knaveenstar 

I would recommend that you also take a look at @Mr-Dang-MSFTs Formativ app. This is a great sample app that includes all the logic for both defining and answering questions.


This app uses an Excel data source, but you could amend it so that it uses SharePoint instead.

Re: Custom Survey Using PowerApps with Sharepoint

Hi @Knaveenstar ,

Could you please share a bit more about your scenario?

Do you want to include questions and corresponding availabel answers wthin your app?


Based on the needs that you mentioned, I think the Employee Engagement Survey template app has given you a right direction.

On your side, you could consider define a questions table along with corresponding available answer options as below:

QuestionTable, {Step: 0, Question: "Question1", AvailableOptions: ["Option1", "Option2", "Option3"] }, {Step: 1, Question: "Question2", AvailableOptions: ["Option1", "Option2", "Option3"]}, {Step: 2, Question: "Question3", AvailableOptions: ["Option1", "Option2", "Option3"]}, {Step: 3, Question: "Question4", AvailableOptions: ["Option1", "Option2", "Option3"]} )

Within each question screen, add a Radio button control, set the Items property to following:

LookUp(QuestionTable, Question = "Current Question").AvailableOptions          /* <-- you could also type corresponding available answer options directly, e.g. ["Option1", "option2", "Option3, ..."] */

Note: The "Current Question" represents the question you displayed within current screen, e.g. "Question1". If you do not want to use Radio control to list your available answers option, you could also consider add a Text Input box within your each question screen to collect user's answer.

Then within your last question screen, you could add a "Submit" button, set the OnSelect property to following:

Patch(                           /* <-- Collect answer for corresponding question in each question screen to your SP List data source */
            Question1: Radio1.Selected.Value,  /* Radio1 is in Question1 Screen */
            Question2: Radio2.Selected.Value,   /* Radio2 is in Question2 Screen */
            Question3: Radio3.Selected.Value,    /* Radio3 is in Question3 Screen */
Question4: TextInput1.Text, /* TextInput1 represents the Text Input box in your Question4 screen, used to collect user's answer */ ... } )
