Move data to another SP list with PowerApp

    I'm pretty sure that Powerapps can't put data on a SP list that the user doesn't have permission for.
    I'm trying to figure out a way to transfer data from one list to another after certain criteria in a powerapp is met. If I used a different data source would this work? CDS maybe. Could it be done with Flow?

    Hi Brian,

    When reading your post I'm also thinking about using Flow for that to monitor one list and transfer the data to another list. In that case, the owner of the flow needs permission on both lists. Are the certain criteria you are mentioning available also in SharePoint? Surely you could have a boolean field that turns to true when the criteria are met and have a Flow on your side to monitor that list for the corresponding value.
    CDS is available only if you have Plan 2 PowerApps or Flow. But, as with SharePoint, the user would need permissions on the corresponding entities.

    Let us know if that helps and what solution you opted for.
    Best regards

    I had started working on the Flow idea yesterday since I thought there wouldn't be a native way to do what I needed. I was unsure of the CDS rules.
