Auto Increment Id in a Collection, and update collection via that Id.

Hey all

 

 

Before I start of things, I already made this work with a SQL table, but now I want to recreate this but with a collection, to have faster loadings and just to test it out in general.

 

But Im struggling with the following, I want to add tasks to a collection with a Id that auto increments everytime a new task is created.

What also needs to possible is that a task can be modified and can be deleted.

 

Now the incrementing Id works fine only passing that Id to a new task doenst seem to work.

 

I hope the screenshots below make it a bit more cleat what I try to achieve.

 

Kind regards

 

 

Tom

Hi @Tom_Slosse,

 

Would you please shared the formula you used to create the collection?

Hey @v-monli-msft

 

 

I solved my problem by adding some more screens to my app. So I have one for a New Task and one for Edit Task now and it works fine. I guess the auto increment Id wasn't the problem but the resetting of the field won't work and I think that messed it up. 

 

But thanks for the reply.

 

Kind regards

 

 

Tom
