Trying to create an appointment record from a gallery

Hi everyone,

I am trying to create an appointment record based on a gallery on a form. When creating the Appointment record from the Activities table it will not allow me to add Account Contact, regarding so the record will be linked. Any ideas on how to accomplish that?

Re: Trying to create an appointment record from a gallery

Hi @shawkinson ,

Do you mean that you can not update Activities entity successfully?

Could you tell me the data type of the fields that you want to update?

Could you show me more details about the form, for example the datacards' update?

Usually, the problem that you met is because that you use wrong formula to update.

You need to modify your formulas based on the fields data type.

Here's a doc about how to update special data type of CDS in powerapps for your reference:

Re: Trying to create an appointment record from a gallery

What I am trying to do is to create an appointment based on Regarding Account/Contact/Opportunity so it will be linked to the existing record that is being pulled from the gallery - the problem I am having is that I can not even add the fields to the Form that will create the appointment.
