Bug: Combo box not saving cleared value

I have an edit form connected to a SharePoint list with both single select choice and managed metadata fields. If the fields already have values, i can't remove the values. The controls will clear out the values, but after saving the old values are still in the fields.

I can reproduce it on edit form cards that haven't been customized.

Hi @stick97 ,


Could you please share more details of your metadata fields and the controls' formula expression in your Edit Form?

I test on my side, and it saves OK.The test as following.

Data Source: Test(Metadata type)


App test:

Form1.Data Source:'20190418Metadata'




Result Check:



Hope this could be helpful.


Best Regards.



It doesn't look like you saved after deleting the value from the 'Test' field. You deleted the value, set a different value, then saved. Can you try deleting the value, then saving?


EditForm1.DataSource: Testing

EditForm1.Item: BrowseGallery1.Selected



I'm also not seeing the value updated in SharePoint.



Also, in case you're wondering, the code for the save button on the edit screen is SubmitForm(EditForm1).

Hi @stick97 ,


Yes, you are right, and I discuss with my teamates, this is really one bug, and we will submit this issue ASAP.

If we receive the responese, I wil update the post.


Best Regards.


@v-yuxima-msftI just found out this seems to be happening with Text Input fields, as well. At least those with the format set to number.
