can't add a list in a folder

Perhaps more a sharepoint question, but for my powerapp I was trying to create a list in a folder I created to group everything for my powerapps. 

 

But within this folder the option to create a list does not seem to exist? Can you change that somewhere?

Hi @StefWS ,

 

Do you want to create a SharePoint List in a folder in a Document Library? 

I'm afraid this is not available currently. A SharePoint library is a special kind of list that stores documents or files. We use library to store files. File is a like an item in a document library. 

There is not a way to put a list inside of another list (in this case document library (which is a special type of list))  

 

Here are some links for your reference.

Sorry for any inconvenience. 

 

 

Best Regards, 
Charlie Choi

Where would it be best to conveniently store all my lists I use for my power apps?

 

If I store them in onedrive my collegues can't acces them, unless I share the folder.

 

But if I do this, will I also have to share this folder for any other user of the company in order for the app to work, or will just sharing the app do the trick?
