Power Automate: Transfer records from SharePoint list to Azure SQL database

Majority of times, when we are working with various data sources, we want information to go from one source to another, conditioned to the occurrence of an event. Today, I will show you how to transfer records from a SharePoint list to Azure SQL database tables in response to a timesheet approval event. In the process, you will learn how I leveraged the existing Power Apps Expense template app and converted it into a Timesheet app for the purpose of recording time for various activities 

Other topics covered:

  • Working with SharePoint lists and Azure SQL databases
  • "When an item is created or modified" SharePoint connector trigger
  • "Delete Item" SharePoint connector action
  • "Get Items" SharePoint connector action
  • Conditional actions
  • Get Rows and Insert Row SQL connector actions
  • Apply to each action
  • substring(), formatDateTime()
