Creating a Link to the PowerApps with the information in there already populated

So - I'm almost done with this app that I created - and I am doing final tweaking before going live.

 

The thing is - there will be different people utilizing this app at different points in the process.

 

There are emails sent when one step is completed, but the information populated in that step - must remain for the next person to see and manipulate/edit/update as necessary. 

 

How do I achieve this? Is it even a possibility at this point?? I know there are quite a few things you can't do yet...

 

Also - how can I collect data to be uploaded into an attachment that goes with the email sent?

 

I see that you can create an attachment - but there is nothing in it - and there's not actually anything in the file - along with the fact that it's unopenable.

 

I appreciate your help PowerApps Community! Smiley Happy

Re: Creating a Link to the PowerApps with the information in there already populated

Hi @tlroze,

 

You could store the data from previous user to a data source like Excel table in OneDrive for example. Remember to share the excel to these users.  You could set the OnSelect property of the button to send the emails to:

Office365.SendEmail(inputTo.Text, inputSubject.Text, inputBody.Text);Patch(Table1,Defaults('Table1'),{ColumnName:inputBody.Text})

Then add a Display Form control to show the last record in this excel table. Set the data source to table name, and set the Items property of the DisplayForm to:

Last(Table1)

You can send images that are created from PowerApps as attachments using Office365.SendEmail. But you cannot create other files like word/excel/ppt etc. in PowerApps. But if your files are already existing on other data sources like SharePoint library, then you could add this library connection to the app, and then send them as attachments.
