Re: Choice other choice and possibility to write own response

Hi @Anonymous,


Could you please share a bit more about your scenario?

Do you want to write own response within Site Status field (a Choice type column within your SP list) rather than "Other" word when you selected "Other" within the Combo box control?

Further, how do you save your data into your SP list? Using SubmitForm function or Patch function?


The user @joans has faced similar needs with you, please check my response within the following thread:


On your side, when you save your data into your SP list, you should check if current selected value within the Combo box control is "Other", if it is, write your own respone back to the Site Status field of your SP list, if not, write current selected value within Combo box control back to the Site Status field. 


I assume you use Patch function to save data into youe SP list, please take a try with the following workaround:


Note: The ComboBox1 represents the Combo box control within your app.


More details about Patch function in PowerApps, please check the followingh article:
