This is where Power Apps can help. Power Apps is an offering from Microsoft and is part of the Office 365 suite of tools and allows you to create custom apps. The best part is that it is designed to be used by non-technical users, bringing the power of process automation to all. 

You can add integrations to other applications meaning if you have an existing process that uses SharePoint Online, Dynamic 365 and Excel then by using Power Apps you can bring all of the information together in a single app.
