Microsoft Lists - Starting with filled in rows when making new list from template

AC 20 Reputation points

I'm making a list template that will be made available through Teams. I've uploaded it with the SharePoint Online Management Shell (Add-SPOListDesign etc.)

The goal is for each new list made from this template to start with a couple of rows already filled out with predetermined data. I tried adding the data with PowerAutomate, but with no success(It's very possible I'm just not experienced enough with powerautomate and that it's easily doable).

Does anyone know of a way to accomplish this?

    Hi @AC ,

    For auto-filling lists with data, you can also use Power Apps. I found some posts, don't know if it is the effect you want.
