Confirmation data was saved in SP list

Hi All,


I am looking for a way to display a 'Successfully submitted' message that appears only if the data has indeed been saved to the SP list. Is there a way for PowerApps to receive a confirmation from the SharePoint list that the data was saved, and to issue a warning if it hasn't?


We want users to respond to all fields, but as shown in this post the functionality making PowerApps fields 'required/mandatory' does not enforce this properly. If we make all SharePoint list items mandatory, and the user misses to fill out a field in PowerApps, their submission (list entry) will simply not save in SharePoint.


Therefore we are trying to find a way to advise the user if their submission worked or not. Any ideas?

Re: Confirmation data was saved in SP list

Hi DanielaH,


May you consider to use OnSuccess property of EditForm control.



Before using the OnSuccess property, please set all the columns in the SharePoint list as “Required”(according to your needs).

Then create an app based on the list. On the EditForm, set the EditForm’s OnSuccess property as: UpdateContext({message:"successfully"}), OnFailure property as: UpdateContext({message:"wrong"}).

Then add a Label control, set its Text property as message.

When the data you filled on the Form are submitted successfully, an message “successfully” will be shown on the label, otherwise, if you missed some fields, the message “wrong” will be shown on the label.

Please have a try with it. Hope it could be a reference for you.


Best regards,
Mabel Mao
