Using Flow to build a report from multiple SharePoint lists

I have a project management PowerApp that displays and writes information to 17 different SharePoint lists. The app is designed to let users manage a project through multiple phases and enter information as it's collected for each phase. I would like to build a Flow to compile the information gathered in all of these lists in a report of some kind so that the project managers can go back and review the information after the project is completed. I'd like for the report to be stored in the SharePoint site for easy access. Ideally it would be a PDF file or something else that could be easily downloaded (Word document was my other thought) 

 

I have no idea where to start with this, or if it's even possible! My other option is to have one gigantic list to dump all of the information into, but the project managers are hoping for something more user-friendly. Thanks in advance for your help!

 

Thanks for your help!

Re: Using Flow to build a report from multiple SharePoint lists

@ahessel 

My first thought after reading your question is that Power BI rather than Flow would be my first stop.  If you can't use Power BI (licensing costs, etc.) then Excel is the next best thing (stored in a SharePoint library). 

I would explore using Power BI and/or Excel before I started creating a Flow for this purpose.
