Conflict error is not showing when 2 users modify the same field

Hey Guys,


I am new to PowerApps. I am trying to create an app where users can do a CRUD on an Excel file. I created an Excel file, saved it in my OneDrive, share access with another user "User2". I created an app from the data and can do CRUD with no issues. I shared the app with user2. I was expecting a conflict error when me and user2 try to modify the same field, but I am getting no error. (Based on what I read on by Greg Lindhorst).


Here is my onClick:  "UpdateContext({EditRecord:First(Filter(CurrWeek, R_x0023_ = DataCard4.Default))}); Patch(CurrWeek, EditRecord, EditForm1.Updates)".


and I am using IsEmpty(Errors(CurrWeek)) to check for errors, but its returning true.


Am I missing something?

Hi Amusa,


Since you mentioned that 2 users are modifying the same field, and you both can modify it, my I know the result after this? Finally what is the data in app?

Thanks for your response Mona,


Here is the scenario:


User1 and User2 opened the same screen to edit a field. The field original value is "test". User1 set the field to "user1 test" and submit, then User2 set the field to "user2 test" and submit. Both submissions were successful. User1 app is still showing "user1 test", but when refreshed it shows "user2 test".


My expectation is after user1 changed the original value, user2 will get a conflct error when trying to change the field, since the value in the excel file is not original value user1 opened the screen with.


I hope I answered your questons.


Thank you!
