Save data in OnDrive Excel or SharePoint

Hi,


I have already built an app layout but I do not know how to save app data to an excel (on OneDrive) or SharePoint?

 

My queries are:

  1. Basically, whatever selections or values user enter in the App, it should be saved in Excel (OneDrive) or SharePoint.
  2. If I create a data structure in Excel or SharePoint for EACH selection/form from App, how can I save the data to relevant columns?

 

I am new to PowerApp, so an easy step-by-step info will be much appreciated.

 

Thanks in anticipation.

Hi @1Manoj ,

 

Before you create PowerApps, you need to first have the data source created. That is to say, you need to first create the excel table or the SharePoint list data structure, then connect PowerApps to either of them as the data source. 

 

If you are new to PowerApps, please first try to create an auto-generated app from Home > Start from data > Create > SharePoint and then PowerApps will create the app for your. You will see how the data show in the app and you can manage the records in the app.

 

You could refer to below documentation about data sources in PowerApps:
