Combine multiple If statements with different true/false

I'm pretty new to powerapps but learning as I go. Is there a way to write the following if statements as one statement? (that way it will only create one item on my sharepoint list, instead of seperate items for each if statement). I am struggling to do so as each If statement has a different 'if false' and 'if true' parts.

 

If(
    IsEmpty(MondayCombo.SelectedItems),
    Patch(
        ChangeOfService,
        Defaults(ChangeOfService),
        {Monday: DataCardValue82.Text}
    ),
    Patch(
        ChangeOfService,
        Defaults(ChangeOfService),
        {
            Monday: Concat(
                MondayCombo.SelectedItems,
                Value,
                ", "
            )
        }
    )
);
If(
    IsEmpty(TuesdayCombo.SelectedItems),
    Patch(
        ChangeOfService,
        Defaults(ChangeOfService),
        {Tuesday: DataCardValue83.Text}
    ),
    Patch(
        ChangeOfService,
        Defaults(ChangeOfService),
        {
            Tuesday: Concat(
                TuesdayCombo.SelectedItems,
                Value,
                ", "
            )
        }
    )
);
If(
    IsEmpty(WednesdayCombo.SelectedItems),
    Patch(
        ChangeOfService,
        Defaults(ChangeOfService),
        {Wednesday: DataCardValue84.Text}
    ),
    Patch(
        ChangeOfService,
        Defaults(ChangeOfService),
        {
            Wednesday: Concat(
                WednesdayCombo.SelectedItems,
                Value,
                ", "
            )
        }
    )
);

 

 Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I would say "no" you cannot write code this as a single IF statement.  Why?

You must have 3 separate IF statements because your goal is to check each of these conditions independently.

 

IsEmpty(MondayCombo.SelectedItems)
IsEmpty(TuesdayCombo.SelectedItems)
IsEmpty(WednesdayCombo.SelectedItems)

 

Writing an IF statement to combine them like this would not work.  After the 1st true condition is found PowerApps does not continue checking the rest of the conditions.  For example if MondayCombo is empty some_code_here1  would execute and then PowerApps would quit the IF statement without evaluating the TuesdayCombo and WednesdayCombo.

 

If(
    IsEmpty(MondayCombo.SelectedItems),
    some_code_here1,
    IsEmpty(TuesdayCombo.SelectedItems),
    some_code_here2,
    IsEmpty(WednesdayCombo.SelectedItems),
    some_code_here3
)

You can combine multiple conditions in one If statement. The general structure is If( Condition1, ThenResult1 [, Condition2, ThenResult2, ... [ , DefaultResult ] ] ). However it's not clear what your overall logic is. Is it that you want to create one record, with values for Monday, Tuesday etc. ?
