Have form auto save

Hello,

 

My form will be mainly used offline and i want to ensure my users can properly save their work so they can submit it online. 

 

How can i implement an autosave on PowerApps whenever there are changes  that can display a "last saved 00:00:00"

 

the form writes back to SP through a data source 

 

Please let me know if you have any questions

Add a timer control on the app, set it for the save interval you want and then have it execute the same logic as your save button does when the timer expires.

Re: Have form auto save

Hi @bubs ,

Do you want to load data that entered offline?

I suggest you use the funtion of savedata and loaddata.

When user is offline, they use SaveData( Collection, Name ) to save the data they have entered.

When user is online, they use LoadData( Collection, Name [, IgnoreNonexistentFile ]) to load the data that they saved before.

Here's doc about it for your reference:

Alternatively, you can have a  perform patch or save option on the control OnChange event. 

 

Everytime somebody goes ahead and types the items gets saved/updated.
