New to the sharepoint and power platform setup and wanted some advice. I have setup a simple payment request generator in powerapps and power automate where the data and its approval status gets stored in a sharepoint list. What would be the best way to print the data from each line item into a pre-formatted document? Would a html file be the easiert way or something else.   I am quite new to the whole concept so any help would be appreciated.

According to your description, you can use the action populate a word template to do so. Here is a tutorial about creating a simple word file with a template and send it in an Email. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zzm965PlYl0

Note: The actions with word needs premium

As for SharePoint list, you can use triggers like When an item is created to trigger the flow when a new item is created or For a selected item to do it manually. Then you can use the dynamic content to fill list item filed values to the word file.

  • I have tried the word template but the drawback here was that it was a premium connector. One alternative that I considered was to connect to the sharepoint list in excel and then vlookup the fields. However I was hoping to have something that could be triggered directly from the SP list.
